For serious, look at the puck handling these guys have. You watch this video and then tell me that pro-hockey players aren’t the most skilled people in all of professional sports.
- Yes it takes skill to hit a ball traveling 100mph 300+ feet. But you’re standing still and the ball is being thrown at you. Hockey is so much more intense than baseball.
- Yes shooting a 3 pointer is difficult, but you don’t have guys skating into you at a 20-30mph while you yourself are going the same speed. Oh and you have to watch out for the boards that are fast approaching.
- Football is rough, I’ll admit that, and you have to catch a ball while maneuvering between a bunch of other guys. But there’s none of the fancy stick work involved. Minor hand movements translate to the stick greatly.
- Oh, and none of this even compares to accurately shooting the puck from 10, 20, 30, 40 feet away at tiny targets, again, all while on ice.
