Note I didn't say pros in the second part of that sentence. Never once mentioned anything about players desire here, which by the way is all but moot. The league doesn't need the Sochi games to boost interest in North America. The time zones are too far apart.
Can you give evidence of that? From what I recall, the hockey games in Lillehammer and even Albertville were well attended.
