You must mean the “skills” competition? OMG watching that is torture, I tried a few times and couldn’t keep it on for more than a couple minutes. I was not surprised by the female “players” (I use quotes b/c they are not part of NHL, are they part of the same Players Association or something?) but I can think of dozens of NHL’ers who deserved to be there more. The Sara Nurse “goal” was pathetic, Shesterkin (I think) looked like I do when letting my kid when 5 years old score on me while attempting to make it look like I tried. That was sickening, imo took female hokey back a step. So sick of the networks, league shoving female hockey down our throats. If there were a bigger market for them, they’d know it. This push marketing style has been out of fashion since the 80’s and has shown to have the opposite effect of what is desired, as in it turns people off. Such short sighted, simplistic mindset that they think shoving women onto every broadcast is going to make women's hockey profitable. Most of the events were garbage, they messed up a decent thing. The old fixing a problem that didn’t exist b/c I recall skills compétions being quite exciting and entertaining when it was the basic core skills, a stars wanted to shine with skill more than gimmicks. Just a money grab now. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
