Yzerman didn't invite Staal to the Canadian team camp if wasn't able to participate. The vision will probably never be 100%. Insurance issues might prevent the Canadian players from actually going on the ice. The US team has already said there won't be any on ice stuff at their camp. Insurance is ridiculously high.
Hockey Canada hopes to finalize plans for its Olympic orientation camp in August, but there’s no certainty that players will be able to skate because of insurance issues.
Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson said no determination has been made yet on whether players will be able to skate, but called it “difficult” based on the price of insuring all NHL contracts.
“Insurance is a big issue,” Nicholson said in an interview Friday. “We got some quotes yesterday that it would be over a million dollars to skate. So if it’s that type of dollars, it’d be very difficult for us to do that. But we’re just starting to look into that now with the agreement being done.”
