    (Maybe NWHL salaries be will redundant in 2023.)

    Dani Rylan: "We're not going anywhere"


    While this article is definitely skewed towards Rylan's perspective, it does a good job of summarizing what's happened this summer and the fallout.

    Great article. Interesting. I have wondered all along what the Boycotting players are looking for. You will never find a bigger supporter of women's athletics then me. I went to a Pride game last year before they made the deal with the Bruins. I bought a ticket the day of the game with no issue. You have to have a market. Look what happened to the CWHL and the Boston Womens soccer team the "Breakers". They folded because they didn't have enough money. It almost feels like some of the players have a personal vendatta against Dani Rylan. Hockey careers are limited for men and women....sad to see so many sit out.

    Are the boycotting players fighting a battle that has no opponent?

    I think their real opponent is the person they're carrying water for: Gary Bettman. I think they're being played. If the NHL's proposal that has them all turned against the NWHL is so much better for everyone, then the NHL should move forward with it and the market will decide which league is best. The players will go where they get the best deal and any sponsorship or media rights deals will follow the league with the most stars.

    Bettman has the best players in the sport convinced that they should starve the NWHL to death on his behalf. But with no other league to go to once they've done that, how do they hold him to his promises?
