Not much jumping involved in hockey.

I laughed when I saw the pullup thing too.  :)

But important for the post-championship celebrations.  :)

I'm pretty sure the physical tools and skill sets to play hockey versus football are different. 

WRs in football, yeah, leap, vertical, sure. Offensive linemen? Do they even measure verticals for them? 

Alternatively, how quick can a guy knocked to his knees by a block get on his feet? I'm guessing goalies are faster. 

I suspect all these numbers are pro-rated to importance to the sport and position played.

 

Tell me I have a goalie with a 40" vertical I'm still going to ask and worry more about his glove hand. ;)

Hockey players can't jump. Butts are too big.

My old hockey coach had a big arse, and he would say you can't drive a spike with a tack hammer.  

Teachers and coaches would not say such things today.
