Fehr signs off on pushing back Olympic roster deadline from 12/31

http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/i...ympic-deadline

IIHF was getting pressured from Russians, Sweden, Finland and Czech Republic to move roster deadline to 1/14 (two weeks after original 12/31 deadline). But NHL and others pushing for earlier deadline to make travel arrangements for families, etc.

The person that had to be convinced on the NHL side to extend the deadline was NHLPA head Fehr.

But it's only been extended one week (to 1/7).

Team USA planned to announce during Winter Classic 1/1. Looking into possibly delaying announcement.

Team Canada never had set an announcement date, so there's another week the pundits and fans can possibly speculate.
