Pretty much anyone who makes themselves out to be some kind of big deal or well-respected person in their field probably isn't. If they actually had that type of reputation, they wouldn't feel compelled to talk about it.

But hey you seem cool though

While I certainly held this point of view in my playing days... now that I’m a father with a young child getting ready to play, looking back on the head injuries I suffered, I almost feel like checking should be done away with entirely.

Don’t get me wrong; it’s been a part of the game for forever and there’s nothing I love to see more than a solid open-ice hit. But given where sports medicine is going and the fact that repeated head injuries have been directly connected with a whole slew of problems for the players that suffer them, it seems like we may be heading towards the twilight of contact sports. And at this stage in my life I can’t really say that I’m upset about it.

So maybe women’s hockey is actually progressive in a sense, even though sexism is ironically the driving force behind it.
