I really can't picture the IIHF pushing for a summer tournament. The Olympics don't pose the same logistic problem to the European leagues as it does to the NHL because they have several international breaks scheduled each season anyway.

It's not going to happen anyway, the biggest player at the Winter Olympics, FIS (in charge of both the nordic and alpine skiing, that's basically half the Olympics) would never agree to something that deviates so significantly from their normal season.
