I think all 30 (or whatever) teams will play over there.
AIUI, the Sharks did "beg off" playing in an Olympic year due to the condensed season, especially when they are one of the highest mileage traveling teams regardless. (And you'll note, no European play this year.) The Sharks did play the following season.
Guessing Fall 2014 might have some play in Europe.
