Curtis Crawford’s letter in the Nov. 22 edition of The Hockey News is incredibly offensive to any woman who was ever played hockey.
The fact he said women’s skill level is a joke compared to men’s is sexist and wrong. Elite woman train, work and play just as hard as men do and any one of the women on the “team that plays tune-up games against the midget boy’s team and sometimes loses” should be congratulated for how far they’ve gone in their hockey career.
These women deserve to be recognized for the hard work and dedication they put into their training and many of them definitely deserve to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
