Hayley Wickenheiser given contract in Finland

Hayley Wickenheiser, the first female to earn a point in a men’s league hockey game, has earned a contract for the rest of the year with Kirkkonummi Salamat, a tier-two team in Finland. I do not approve of this move, because the thought of the gender barrier breaking is bad news. What’s next? Women in the NHL? Are women going to start showing up at NFL training camps too? There’s already going to be one at a PGA event. Sorry if I sound sexist, but women have no place in mens leagues…..they have their own leagues to play in. Hayley’s considered one of the best female players in the world. Why not stay in her own womens league and remain dominant? She’s getting the hopes up for too many young girls who now think they’re gonna play in the NHL…..which HOPEFULLY will never happen!!!

    I think it is a good move for the Kirkkonummi Salamat and for Hayley Wickenheiser.1)She brings in fans.2)She is a Canadian doing what all other Canadains like to do and 3)She is rewriting hockey history to be the first women PLAYER.I think she is going to do great.


    -Go Hayley Go-

    Hey dumbass, there already has been a female in the NHL….mannon rehaume or whatever her name is with Tampa Bay Lightning….boy your face must be red

    whats wrong with the possibility of woman in the NHL? It is like saying players from Europe have their owns leagues, why don’t they stay there!?!?…get a life…and get the racist, discriminative attitude off of ya.

    I would love to see some hot women in the NHL. Put Anna Kournakova on skates. I would pay to see women kick the mens asses.

    Hey Captian Modano, your a dushe bag. We watch the NATIONAL Hockey League, not the MENS Hockey League. If the chick can do it, then good for her. Go show your wife or girlfriend ( dont think you have either after reading your coments) and show her you article. Bet you wont be getting any anytime soon.

  7. Robert says:

    he wouldn’t have got some, anyways.

    I think it’s great. She can school some of the guys around in the NHL. Plus we already had a Canadian woman play in the NHL. Was there a big fuss about her?

    assuming she can make it in the nhl, what happens then? do we have to phase body-checking out to accomadate the ladies? what’ll happen when tucker tries to take out her knees? or stevens plants his giant elbow in her face? or marchment comes in for a knee-on-knee? or thornton/mclaren tries to take her head off with a clothesline? come on, really, even some of the legal hits would be too much for nearly all of the women hockey players out there.

  14. Islesfreak says:

    When is she posing nude? Call me then.

  15. CaptainModano says:

    uh…..racist?? what article did you read?

  16. beckfan says:

    Well if thats the case, everything you just mentioned will result into a power play for her team.

  17. Aetherial says:

    Women are more than welcome to play in the NHL; if they are good enough.

    Won’t happen. It is a LONG LONG way from soem second division Finnish team to the NHL. I also believe she is probably a novelty and a lot of her signing had to do with selling tickets.

    She is a fine hockey player, just nowhere near the talent level of probably tens of thousands of men around the world.

    Let’s be real here.

  18. HabsPunk says:

    whoop dee do, and shes injured. what about the legal hits, guys arent gonna back off cuz she’s a woman. come now, beyond the physical play of the nhl, the biggest problem would be the skill levels. theres sooo many men playing in junior, or the ahl or university and all that, just waiting for their chance to get to the nhl, sure there’ll be some women that will be better than some of these men, but not at the nhl level.

  19. Robert says:

    your saying woman don’t belong in hockey…no different than saying blacks don’t belong…is saying black don’t belong racist? yes. So saying that about woman is to.

  20. CaptainModano says:

    Dude, you don’t want that….she looks like a guy. Not good.

  21. CaptainModano says:

    you fucking moron, you think saying women don’t belong in the nhl, which they don’t, is racist?
