Wasn't and isn't guaranteed but it was discussed... it was part of some of the decisions they were making.

Players have a say.

Like it or not, the Olympics do grow the game globally, more fans = more $. Not necessarily for the NHL but potentially... even if that potential doesn't occur until years or decades down the road. Golf is doing the exact same thing... also on a global scale... trying to grow the game, more golfers/fans = more revenue.
