the NHL does the same tests and more at the NHL Combine (there is alot more emphasis on recovery time and V02 max tests etc). The results are pretty comparable when you consider that A) the guys at the NHL combine are 17-18 years old, not 22-24 like NFL prospects and B) NHL prospects dont train specifically for combine events like alot of NFL prospects do. You wont see an NHL draft hopeful spending hours just trying to increase his vertical and/or 40 time because its not as important in hockey.

The whole "NFL players are the gods of the athlete world" is really blown way out of proportion. In fact I would say an NBA player would probably mop the floor with an NFL player in most activities.

if a hockey player was athletic enough to make it in football, they either dont care about money, or they would go there and make way more money
You realize that on avg NFL players are the lowest paid of the big 4 pro sports, right? And NHL contracts are guaranteed, unlike football. And the career longevity is longer in hockey. Plus outside of the US, no one really gives a shit about football so for people who grow up outside the US, its not even really an option.

But other than all those things, you are bang on.
