Those people probably just say "Well, that was cool," and go right back to watching the KHL. I dont see the point in the NHL trying to expand its global outreach through the Olympics.
I think the goal should be to grow the sport worldwide, not just in North America. It's a world economy and it will only continue to go in that direction.
