Professional hockey players always say the right things, but do they believe them?

This is what professional hockey players take for granted. All of it. Look at the huge smiles on these guys' faces on the ice. Fans - and the media, to some extent - are the difference between a recreation league hockey game and a professional hockey game.

Obviously, they play because they love the game - since they get nothing else out of it. But to be appreciated adds a whole 'nother dimension to things. They're not getting paid; they're just being cheered on. Cheering fans turns a regular guys' night out playing hockey in an empty rink into their Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.

So who are you playing for?
