Well, that's pretty much the problem. She couldn't really compare with the male goalies. I don't have a problem with women competing on an equal footing with men, but in sports, men have a natural advantage in size and speed and probably aggression too.
Tampa Bay used her mostly to generate publicity and let her play in one pre-season game. She gave four goals after twelve shots and didn't make the regular season team.
That's what I'm referring too when I say that one has to stay real. I'm not equating female athletes with a legless men; but simply saying that some determined athletes, while courageous and strong-willed are simply trying to accomplish the impossible. I'm not comparing physical abilities, but unrealistic goals. Manon was an Olympic caliber goalie in women's hockey. In the NHL, she simply didn't cut it. The same way a guy with no legs won't cut it in a game that involves a lot of running.
