    The NWHL is (half) full of teams with relatively no-name players and the PWHPA is (half) full of surname-only teams.
    What’s the end game here?

    “Am I hurting the sport if I choose the N.W.H.L.?”

    A tough call all around:

    “Enter the Professional Women’s Hockey Players’ Association, which aims to create a professional league that provides livable salaries so its athletes would not need second jobs.”

    And how is that working out?

    It did not appear to me that the game against the Shark alumni, which was free to attend and the marque event, wasn't very well attended. 2-2.5K would be my guess. The game in Canada couldn’t have shoe horned in 1000 people.

    This will all come to a head when the money from USA Hockey ends in a couple years, if not sooner.
    Anybody know how the Swedish boycott is working out? Anybody care?

    My guess is that a re-match of the Finland-USA IHF could have drawn in 10K people over a several city tour, , I know I'd have liked to see it, but that opportunity has passed.
