Still no guarantee the NHL players go Hockey Canada and the PA have no agreement in place. The PA wants the IOC to cover player insurance costs so teams and Hockey Canada USA Hockey don't have to. I mean I think it was shown that the insurance cost for Canadas top 5 players was going to be over 700K.

One of the biggest hurdles here.
And both the players and owners wanted to make sure they, their families and guests were given better treatment than in previous years. This is especially important because hotels and other amenities are much more limited in Sochi than they were in Vancouver in 2010, or even Salt Lake City in 2002. The sides want it spelled out in the agreement that the IOC will provide proper hotel rooms, transportation, access to Olympic venues and some meals for their families and other guests at the Games.
