Figure it out, USA Hockey. This is ridiculous. If these were your sisters or daughters, you'd be correcting this in a heartbeat. This isn't your most talent women demanding special treatment. It's them asking for similar treatment. Get your act together, USA Hockey.
It's very simple: if you're not with them, you're against them. And these women are not ones who back down from anyone. I'm sure the rest of the world can attest to that fact.
I stand with the American women. Whole-heartedly and genuinely. Even if they are our sworn hockey enemy.
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
