The last Olympic hockey tournament was very entertaining and really ignited hockey interest across all markets. I think the league is missing out on a promotional vehicle if they oppose player participation. Here in the States, it was huge, everyone in my office was sneaking down to the coffee shop to watch the games.

As for the "amatuer" only argument for the Olympics, very few Olympic athletes can be called amtuers, in this age of consumerism and marketing endorsements. Its very naive imo to seriously object on those grounds.
