Re: Why can't the girls hit?

From what I have seen there is plenty of contact (angling, pinning, etc) that doesn't get called. I don't think big hits would add anything to the girls' game, and would likely result in a lot of concussions. That is not sexist, just science: girls suffer concussions at a much higher rate than boys in sports like soccer. Girls hockey is still a very dynamic game with lots of change of control, unlike for example girls' lacrosse.
