Poile has no control over it...the players are essentially loaned out to their Olympic teams and are completely at their mercy. Unless Sweden came out and said he has a concussion (minimum 7 days, baseline testing, etc) or he had another catastrophe injury (knee, shoulder, etc) the players are taken care of by their country's medical staff until the Games are over.

Especially as the assistant GM of a rival squad, Poile isn't exactly in the greatest position to pull a player from another squad on the suspicion that he has a concussion...you just hope for the sake of the Games, the player's health, and general goodwill that the country doesn't do anything to jeopardize someone's health...
