Feel so bad for the Finnish team.  They are the true Gold medalists.  

THEY WERE LITERALLY PULLED OFF THE ICE...

 

 

 

...and handed silver medals.

And before that, they were pulled back ON the ice after having been told they need to win by two.

It'd be nice if men's hockey came back.

Do we have to worry about a new curse for UND hockey?  Since the womens hockey program was cut, the mens team has failed to make the NCAA Tournament !! :blink:

You are correct,  and we are calling it "The Kennedy Curse". We need to beat this one down, before it gets legs.
 

Now, from hearing Fighting Hawks on a loudspeaker, we have the "Fast Eddy Curse", where one gets the felling of a golf ball stuck in your throat and a baseball stuck in your - - -.  Well, I think you get what I mean.

Pretty good move by them to force the NHL to show their cards.  If they're able to guilt-trip the NHL owners into a bad business decision, good for them.

If they don’t get the funding, will they finally go away and get real jobs?

So their thought is, "it worked against USA Hockey so it will work against the NHL." 

The NWHL folding is what the NHL wants, or that is what the rumblings are, for them to take over. I guess they think they should be making the money that players like Ovi make.

I am surprised that Brad didn't write about the Minnesota Whitecaps winning the NWHL title (with two former UND players o the team).

Lacrosse pro players mostly have to work full time jobs.  It’s nothing new for fledgling new league, but somehow women’s pro hockey is so special.

We cannot make a sustainable living playing in the current state of the professional game. 

I can't make a sustainable living doing what I'd prefer to all day every day either.

 

(And that's luck for all of you or I'd be here all the time.)

Shouldn't these non-und WIH posts be in some other thread? Under other sports or something? 

Maybe in a thread for sports that are not retired?

Are women pro hockey players boycotting Wendy's and their spicy nuggets too?

Should we talk about what a jackass Idalski is on twitter? That's related and might be entertaining

We should. What a child.
