    The commentary on the sudden shift in rules enforcement was also relevant.

    Does this mean the Kings will actually win those games??? No NBC regular season curse...no Kings loss... It's addition by subtraction...

    Not sure how it's symbolic middle finger to the NHL. It's pretty obvious that all the NBC channels (including NBCSN, USA Network, etc) are going to air all things Olympics anyway. There isn't any time or room in their schedule for NHL games.

    *shrugs* Sometimes I feel like Gary can't get out of his own way. With that said, I may be in the minority but absolutely looking forward to non-professionals taking the ice for team USA. Woot! Also, love the curling events. Why, why, why is Olympic curling soooo amazing?=) No matter, can't wait...!

    So the NHL isn't going to the Olympics in South Korea in part because they don't want to shut down & take the focus off of the NHL. And now their national broadcaster isn't going to show NHL games during the Olympics, which will essentially take the focus off the NHL. Okay.

    Although I don't know if I want my favorite NHL players being anywhere near Korea right now with the threat of nuclear armageddon. Not that I'd be happy with minor leaguers & college kids facing that either.

    But Ovie will join the KHL players, and the SEL players will be there, so unless you believe in Miracles twice, it's gonna be a hard for Team USA to make it out of the prelims.

    Absolutely Fish. Not really concerned about where the squad finishes. My happiness will be from the guy who is elated that he skated eight minutes in a losing effort in a throw away game for team usa. If I'm honest with myself, would love to see an all eastern block metal round. Belarus, SVK or the Czech team playing dirty and taking it to Ovie. Mmmmmm good times.
