I don't see how a woman is any different from a male NHL forward trying to play goal? I think Joe Thornton would get lit up too.

I doubt that. Semi Pro is more popular than the QMJHL in Quebec.

They get like 3500 a game...that is gaurenteed. The WHA could get more or less, but i woudlnt take that chance and ditch the Semi-Pro for a league which will fold.

She was playing in the 3rd Finnish league...the players in those leagues work during the week like normal people. It is more a rec league than anything.

If they're going to pay players over $500K on average, they'll get good players.

But they have to get their off ice stuff together first.

i didn't mean "lit up" in the sense that goalies get lit up. perhaps my wording was confusing

HC Salamat I divisioona 03/04 - 10 0 0 0 - 2

Yes....both players would be truly worth of playing against men in any of the higher leagues in America .

The only reason Hayley had minor success in Finland is because she was not being plastered by her male counter parts everytime she handled the puck.....I believe she played the 4th line....does anybody know?

Let her or any other female play against men ranging from the ECHL up to the NHL, and you will no doubt have a serious injury on your hands.....don't kid yourselves.....if she could have played in the AHL...in her own country or in the USA, believe me, she wouldn't be in Finland.

Is that the same semi-pro league that has a ton of fighting in it? With guys like Dody Wood, Pat Cote and Link Gaetz?

I don't think a woman would do too well in the WHA. The WHA will probably to similar to AHL teams.

Yeah semi-pro is goons and scorers. The goons dont fight the scorers. There is a lot of offense and about 7 fights a game. But no cheap stuff.

It is pretty amazing hockey.

Who cares???

I once saw the 15 year old Jersey district selects (Philly, Jersey, New York) take on and beat the US womens gold medal winning team in like 2001 5-2 in a game of womens rules (no checking etc) at lake placid. Pretty pathetic to see the best womens team in the world lose to a group of young kids in a legit exhibition game. Women cannot compete with men at hockey!
