The NHL is unlike any other professional sports league in the entire world. While the NBA, NFL, and MLB all have countless players, coaches, and members of the front office with huge and sometimes unmanageable egos, the NHL is all guts and no glory.
However, there are the select few NHLers that let their egos get the better of them. The selflessness of old time hockey has been replaced with a bit of showboating, contract holdouts, and players voicing complaints about lack of ice time. Yeah, it's a real shame.
That being said, hockey is still by far the most selfless sport in the world. Finding as many egos as I did was difficult, which is saying something. So, take a look at a rare breed, the egotistical hockey player.
Not to have an ego or anything, but feel free to follow me on twitter @MattheFairburn for more hockey takes.
