The NHL has no access to the players at the Olympics. can't show any highlights or interviews. The NHL has no access to any video of the Olympics. Unless you saw Crosby's goal against the US live,you haven't seen it. The NHL shuts down the league for 20 days. The players are at risk for injury. The NHL reaps no gains. No more Olympics for the NHL players.
Good news.
