The Olympics on the other hand, is something that players look forward to and definitely get up for. I haven’t heard too many instances of a player declining an Olympic roster invitation for any reason less than a serious injury or a family emergency.
if some team wants to be called dominant in any sport, it should be able to compete for gold without some of it's best players. isn't depth one of the things that is said to be Canada's biggest advantage?
