Its one of the best ways they have to expose the game to new fans.
People talking about the time difference simply dont understand how the Olympics are broadcasted in the US. All the events are broadcasted on tape delay in prime time. If the US has a good showing, they will have their games aired to a large audience, which is good for the game.
There are some negatives, but I wouldn't be overly concerned about them.
I also think the NHL and PA should consider a secondary "Canada Cup" type tournament to be held every 4 years in order to generate some additional revenue. But I wouldnt create this to replace the Olympics.
