Kukla's Korner Hockey

Another brief update on Carey Price today, with more discussion of his off-season rodeo habits - and a pretty snazzy picture of Mr. Price lassoing from atop a horse.
Now word that the Canadiens are in fact none to pleased with Mr. Price’s penchant for his horse habits, and while they softened their stance to allow his participation in a competition a week ago (as discussed on Kukla’s Korner) they are not enamoured with his choice of off-season training (scoop credit to Ron Reush of TheReushBlog).
So, what do fans think, Habs and otherwise: should NHL teams be able to mandate the off-season activities of their players? How about when they are not technically under contract, like Mr. Price? While the players are assets, and teams must protect their well being, they are also individuals with hobbies and interests.
How specifically should NHL teams be able to dictate the activities of their players?
