Guilt Trip:
That was total bull#$#%. The Finns were robbed. That OT goal, should have counted. How in the hell is a goal called off for goaltender interference and the ref calls it a goal and a penalty to the goalie for tripping?? The assclowns upstairs overturn the call on the ice. Terrible terrible terrible. And get this it took them like 12 mins to determine it. What a joke.

Yes, they were robbed.  (See my next post for the IIHF rulebook).

Here’s the IIHF rulebook that defines the rules for the different situations pertaining to a goal that is allowed or disallowed:



Check out paragraph iii.

The  Leafs, the Flames (and Hockey Canada, etc.,) come to the rescue:  unpaid players can now rest easy — payments coming for the soon-to-be defunct CWHL:

For months, CWHL players have been owed more than 230K in team bonuses. League staff and vendors haven't been paid yet either.

Thanks to Hockey Canada (who paid 131K for CDN players), the Leafs, Flames, & other donors, the CWHL will soon be debt free https://t.co/jrskGww0YQ— Hailey Salvian (@hailey_salvian) July 3, 2019

Jayna Hefford, Canadian hockey player & Olympian extraordinaire, is now leading the top job as “Operations Consultant” of the PWHPA (Professional Women’s Hockey Players Association).  It is hoped that one day a true professional women’s league emerges with the support of the NHL.


--- Quote ---“As a member of the PWHPA, our vision is to create a long-term viable professional league which will showcase the greatest product of women's hockey in the world, and Jayna is the perfect leader for this movement.”

A new league won’t just pop up immediately, but the PWHPA has organized at least six showcase tournaments throughout the upcoming season to allow fans and future stars to see their idols back on the ice. The end goal of building a league that is sustainable and desirable for women’s hockey players to play in requires buy-in and support from big name sponsors and the NHL.

Hefford spoke with ESPN’s Emily Kaplan and shared that she “expects to have ongoing talks with the NHL about how they might be able to support or create a professional women's hockey league that satisfies their needs.”

It’s important to remember that the PWHPA isn’t simply asking the NHL to write a cheque, or that the players aren’t asking to be paid millions of dollars yearly. It starts with gaining proper infrastructure, resources, marketing and visibility, to make strides towards a sustainable and viable league that young girls will dream of playing in one day.
