I don't believe women's hockey is quite as widespread as you make it out to be, but certainly nowhere as visible as women's basketball, especially if you consider NCAA basketball and then their pro league. It's nowhere close to comparable.

The NBA Player's Association hired a woman as their head. The league itself has nothing to do with who they select, other than the PA knowing who the adversary will be.

The NHL has been a white sport for a variety of reasons. Bettman can't change that. I seem to recall him being rather active or supportive of getting equipment to poorer areas so more kids could play.
