AP - Never posting before, I have to reply to your second and third comments. I can only assume that you do not understand hockey, nor follow the game. Please remember that one idiot does not make a sport.

First, some of the best young players in the area are GIRLS. Female players are the fastest growing segment in the United States. So much for the testosterone, alcohol and adults argument.

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but the facts speak for themselves.
