Hockey Canada has issues with the IOC just like the NHL does.

Do you think Hockey Canada was happy that they were not allowed to use their federation's logo in Vancouver?

The Olympics are run with an iron fist, and with no North American host nations on the horizon, the NHL and the individual federations will be much less less inclined to jump through the IOC's hoops.
