The NHL helped end a stalemate between the U.S. women's national hockey team and USA Hockey last year by bridging a "sizable" financial gap, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told ESPN.

In an agreement that was kept under wraps until this week, the NHL agreed to pay USA Hockey $25,000 per player to help fund their four-year agreement with the women's national team.

The NBA does this for the WNBA, right? It's a subsidy for a product that can't sustain itself (yet?)...

All the more reason, or no? WNBA is a commercial enterprise being bolstered by a different commercial enterprise. I can't tell if it's better or worse...actually, I can't tell if I should care at all actually...

Someone tell me how to think about this...

You should love it because Amanda Kessel is on the team.
