    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.

    I saw on Instagram that reps from the NWHL will ring the Nasdaq opening bell on Monday. Curious to see which, if any, players will be on hand.

    How has attendance been for the games? Minnesota always seems to have a good crowd

    In an article by Kyle Rossi yesterday he was at a Beauts game and described it as close to 1000 at the live event. Historically I think Minnesota and Buffalo draw well, Boston really came on end of last year, Whale doesn’t get support and Metro can go either way.

    I went on twitch the other day and attempted to stream a past game on my tv. The stream showed it had 212 views. The production was really weak. Pxp and color commentating were good, but the rest was really weak and ultimately unwatchable imo. Sound came in and off due to copyright restrictions for example. The hockey product would have been fine for me, a die hard fan, but the production was bad.

    This is a long essay but it includes the attendance reference I made above. NWHL fans may enjoy this long read by an ACHA fan who is following the ACHA players in the NW. https://clockeyessays.com/2019/12/16/the-pros/

    This sounds like a headline from the Onion. Wall Street is partying, so someone after three scotches or four pints at Faunces Tavern must have said, “Hey, I know a guy who knows a guy who needs somebody to ring the bell Monday. You in?” Run for the hills if they announce an I.P.O.

    Providence alumna Janine Weber is playing for the Whale today on a PTO. She last played in the league in 17-18 for the Pride and was an All Star that season. Her best season with the league was 16-17 when she scored 22 points in 17 games while playing for the Riveters.

    The Whale also had 2 defenders playing this weekend on PTOs. Brinna Dochniak (RIT '19) and Laurel Hill (St. Norbert '14) played to help alleviate missing two defenders to injury.

    The shorthanded group managed to pick up the Whale's first win, with Dochniak assisting on a Kendra Broad score and Hill skating as both a defender and forward.

    when you have a Bull market for ten years, you hafta really start looking hard for somebody to ring the bell.
    I would guess the ones that got a degree in something usefull and went to work are making pretty good money by now, even if they didn't immediately out of college.
    Obviously some got a hockey related job that pays decent money, but that isn't the norm.

    So only the boycott players were chosen and no players from this season's NWHL? I haven't been able to pay much attention to the NW this year...busy job, busy life.

    Disappointing. I thought the NHL was going to stay out of this conflict- they do that by picking all the players from the boycotting players and NONE from the NWHL? Yeah this is consistent.

    Well they can at least stop pretending they're not behind the attempt to fold the league.

    This is pretty spot on, especially now that the women have come onto the ice wearing jerseys with giant NHL shields. I don't see the PWPHA logo they've been putting out there...
