Participation of the best players in the world is good for the sport as a whole, which is intrinsically good for the NHL. It can't be quantified, nor should it need to be. This is one of those situations where obsessing over numbers interferes with common sense. There are things that are bigger than the NHL.
Id love for you to provide some evidence that the Olympics possess some longterm benefit for NHL viewership. Until then, I'd say you are the one being dense about this.
