no, because hockey is a reflex driven game. athleticism in it's sheer form is the ability to jump, sprint and move and an incredibly mobile clip. hockey players are probably higher reflex athletes than clean up hitters in baseball, tennis players.. sports that require more focus and less raw athleticism. which is the key word... i mean, what they're doing is incredibly impressive athletically, but you're talking about a sport in hockey which is literally limited by its means of play to how raw the athletic ability of its competitors is. the goal in hockey is placed on the ground, therefor theres no play ABOVE the goal thus no high flying which is jumping which is raw athletic ability. now i didn't say hockey players are bums, and there are some raw athletes in hockey, but let's not kid ourselves and say in terms of sheer raw athletic ability that 90% hockey players are in the NBA/NFL stratosphere. it's the same with MLB players. it's a reflex and reaction sport, that undoubtedly is incredibly difficult to master and i'm sure most raw athletes would never be able to develop the way hockey players do but to compare the most basic elements of athletic nature between the sports is silly.
also, I'm sure a lot of hockey injuries would take a lot longer to recover from if someone Kendrick Perkins size was skating around out there laying wood. i don't necessarily feel like a good hitter in hockey would be any stronger than a solid tackling free safety or tough nosed SF/SG.
