In 2006,Sweden won the gold medal in Torino. The game was played in the middle of the morning on the east coast.

The NHL isn't based in Europe. Those players play in the NHL.
None of those responses remotely answered my question.

Ask Hank what he thinks. I guarantee his gold medal is right up there with the top accomplishments of his career, right next to his Vezina.

The fact that you're judging the entire issue by what time of night/day games are played shows your limited view.

People have DVRs, games are tape delayed...

oh and people live in different timezones all over the world...

I'm sorry, but not everything happens at 8PM ET.
