The IOC needs the NHL pros more than the NHL needs the IOC
. Both sides know this. It'll be interesting to see what kind of deal they come up with.
They dont actually IMO. Players choose to go the games because of the status of playing at the event and the chance to compete and win gold on an international stage. If a professional or the league they represent make a profit straight from the IOC itself that just sets up a bad precedent in the future.
