About the Olympics… September 6, 2009

I can see valid points from both sides of this “should they or shouldn’t they” argument regarding whether or not the players should be allowed to participate in the Olympics. That being said, since this league is really the only professional sports league with A LOT of their players from countries other than the US, not letting these players play for their countries is never going to go down well with them.

Here’s my overall thought – we have enough problems (see: CBA, potential lockout). Let’s not make this a contentious issue. Yes, it disrupts the league every four years, yes, many NHL’ers don’t play in the Olympics and so they sit around for two weeks. I understand all that. I just think the NHL has bigger fish to fry.
