it just really frustrates me when people act like women’s hockey is hilary knight and only hilary knight. i meani get it, she’s an amazing athlete and a role model and she put so much on the line coming to play in the NWHL. ANd I love her too, I have no criticism for her at all.
But Brianna Decker may be the best scorer in the women’s game…ever! Kacey Bellamy is an amazing fucking defensemen and runs the whole ice. Blake Bolden is a feminine black woman playing in a predominantly white male sport and she’s still one of the best offensive defensemen in the game. Meghan Duggan is skilled leader, she lead Team USA to a silver medal. Julie Chu is an ICON, she’s played in 4 olympics, 9 world championships, and 10 4 nations cups.
Learn about these women they deserve it! They’re getting paid now, so treat them like professionals they are and should have always been.
