And this includes any league the PWHPA has a hand in, as it’s been similarly shady with regard to where their sponsorship money is going and how much players are actually taking in to participate in their movement. You can’t crow publicly about how much more money you’re pouring into the product and then bar players from talking about how much they are benefitting from it, especially since no one here is under some delusion that the money is just flowing like water.” [The Ice Garden]
