If it got promoted, it would likely sell tickets.

Great alternative for mere mortals that can't afford NHL tickets...

Probably more entertaining and there would be a lot less licking.

Or more licking, because you never know what's going on in the girl's locker-room. [drool] :wink:

The problem for women's hockey is that interest in it peaks during international competitions like the Olympics then is essentially forgotten until the next Games come around. Just like women's basketball it isn't a strong enough revenue maker to sustain a professional league with, at least not for more than a few years at best. Fan loyalty and money will always direct itself to the pro men's leagues and there's not much the women's side can do about that, no matter how entertaining the games are or how good their skills are either.

When's the last time you saw any kind of promotion for women's hockey though?

It's a new league, they should be doing all kinds of press and add campaigns etc if they want to generate interest.

I don't think it will rival the men's league as they just don't skate as fast, hit or shoot the puck as hard. But I think they could make it work if they put a bit into pumping it up.

I imagine they start off with an immediate disadvantage by probably not having enough money to do much of a mass-advertising campaign.

The problem is that they always start it with massively flawed expectations. And when it fails, it is some one else's fault that they failed, never their own, so it gets repeated.

I have watched many leagues, both genders, come and go, for this single reason alone.
