He's done development skates and non-contact pickup with members of Canada's Women's National Team. During the development skates, the women look much more polished with far more refined edges and finesse. During the pick-up/gameplay, the women struggle hard against the 15yo AAA boys and are completely outclassed. I think you'd see the same thing with the 80s men vs '23 college players. Dude... You're reaching. Let's break this down.... so he did pickup games with members. How many? How old were there? Which members? Why are we comparing Women's hockey to Men's hockey when one gets considerably more funding and players? How does that relate to 1983 hockey? How do 15yr old kids relate to 21 year old NCAA players? Sorry but you have one of the weakest arguments I have seen for this. The 10 yr jump isn't logical, comparing men's hockey to women's hockey in the same time period is a different argument all together, you fail to understand the difference between a 15yr old and a 21yr old, and you fundamentally do not understand the differences in goalie play from 1983 to 2023.... Dude, you are not only reaching, you aren't even making sense anymore. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
