I have to admit I stopped following hockey back in the early '90's (and wasn't that attached even then), but I recognized the name "Rheaume" in your Blues-Stars recap.

Pascal Rheaume is the younger brother of Manon, the first woman to ever suit up for an NHL team.  I still have one of her hockey cards in my collection.

Did you know that a movie based on her life story is/was "in the works," as they say?

I don't have any more than that, so I don't know what the current status is, or if the project was completed.


 I also stopped watching professional hockey many years ago.  Not sure why.

The fights are a pain, no doubt about that.

And all the rules changes, to try to free up the offenses.

Have you ever noticed that every single team sport eventually has to find ways to counter stifling defenses, or pitching domination?

I just love all sports and have an dmiraion for what all the thlwtes can do in their sport. Rheaume was amazing and she is a trailbalzer, to make it as far as she did is remarkable. A pair of exhibition games in the NHL is awe inspiring. I was a fan of hers because she was talented, not great, but all things considered she was remarkable.

On another note, I wish they would leave the sports alone...I dont need more offense, or more defense, I dont want NBA games in nthe 70's not my NFLK games in the 40's...I like 2-1, 5-3, 8-4 baseball games...I want a double-digit, four or five home run game to be rare so I can take time and marvel at the feat. I loved it when there were just 10 members of the 50 home run club because it was exciting to see who would be the next player to challenge the mark. I knew George Foster was the last to do it before Cecil Fielder then after that I couldnt tell you how many and honestly I dont carew, the mark was spoiled by both players and owners and GM's...all fakes and phonies.

18 times from 1920-1990 ... 11 players
25 times from 1995-2013 ... 16 players

I would agree, on your first point.  It's not just about the Hall of Famers.

On the other...ever wonder what baseball would look like now, if they hadn't lowered the mound, shrunken the strike zone (and the parks), and added the DH?  Randy Johnson on top of Bob Gibson's 1968 hill is a frightening prospect.

Now, players who have been babied all their lives are being ruined by defensive shifts.  Some people cry that the shifts need to be somehow "restrained."

Whose fault is it that the hitters have not learned how to "play the field"?  Defenses won't shift if you quit trying to pull everything.

What if the NBA had not opened up the game by eliminating all the tough, physical, defense?  What if the zone was still banned, and players had to legitimately man-up?

The same with football and hockey.

If they are really so good, make the players make the adjustments, instead of handing them everything on a silver platter.

I agree...shifts would not work if players would hit to thew opposite field...what about making contact...strikeouts are up because outs are equal value now because of cybermetrics...no, outs are not the same...aside from the obvious of contact, moving runners, etc...what about the probability of errors on balls in play...I hate that cybermetrics have adjusted players, not the other way around...

i could go on and on...

NBA needed adjustments...good defense if fine, but because a team cant shhot doesnt make the defense better, they are just poor shooting and executing teams.

And I would love to see Johnson and Gibson today...and also what about making batters be "bad ball hitters" ...where is the high strike...the low strike...
and if batters can foul off pitch after pitch they can put the ball in play as well

I think the lower strike zone comes more from the change in protective gear the umps wear.

No more big outside chest protector.  They crouch lower and read the bottom of the zone better, or something like that.

The funny thing is, their eyes are pretty much at the letters, so the top of the zone should be easy to call.

And the way they position themselves leaves them all vulnerable to the outer edge, because they set up inside so often.  I have never seen so many strikes called on pitches that are clearly off the plate.

In fact, the umpiring this year on balls and strikes has been dismal.

I apologize for getting us off on this tangent. hmm

Check out the fans behind the plexiglass on the right.  That's the most disturbing part.

I have always felt that hockey players a gifted athletes, with all that they can do on skates.

But, it's evident that there is a subgroup of fans who think it's little more than Rasslin' On Ice. hmm

For the record, I enjoy Olympic hockey, though I liked it better in the amateur (certain countries excluded) days.

On Christmas Day in 1972, I got the chance to see our Western Hockey League Seattle Totems play the Soviet Red Army team in an exhibition, during their U.S./Canada tour.

I wish I could visualize that game, and their style of play, now (44 years later hmm).

All I really remember is my favorite Totem -- winger Danny Seguin -- getting a goal and an assist against Tretiak (we lost, 5-2).

Of course, that was a huge thrill in itself.
