This is not women's hockey but it is hockey from where many of us here who love women's hockey have come and I have no doubt that it is also a place from which many women hockey players whom we have enjoyed watching play the game over the years have also come.
Some will be familiar with the story that began a week ago tonight...others may not be. For those who may not be, this article should be self explanatory.
The talk of the country for the last week.
I initially just wanted to post the video of Ron McLean's solo comments from tonight's edition of Coach's Corner on Hockey Night in Canada but it wouldn't allow me to do so. I had to copy the entire article in which the video is embedded. In the end maybe that was the better idea.
I wanted to post it because of some of the comments that he makes about hockey and what the game means to relationships, to people, what it means to this country and certainly, as well, to those in other countries. Something to give some thought to as he speaks. This is a borderless topic with the central controversy centering (no pun intended) around a homegrown hockey icon/legend who at times seemed like he was bigger than life.
