do you have a streaming device that has a nbcsports app? you might be able to use your sling login to get access and their individual app has nbc primetime coverage

Lots of KHL players, though :?

Good to know that even these huge fuckers hurtling themselves down a mountain so fast they're struggling not to fly away comes down mostly to a bureaucratic argument between entrenched national interests

lack of NHL players is only all the more reason to get fired up for the US women's hockey team!!

IT TOTALLY STINKS!
Canada sending a bunch of second-rate dudes from Euro leagues and two retired NHLers. I think they should have just sent the junior team.

Mostly it sucks. Obviously its not quite the same scale but imagine like the Premeir League and La Liga decided their club players couldnt go to the World Cup.

There are plenty of relevant hockey countries and its always exciting. I'm really bummed.

yeah, it's a huge bummer and a missed opportunity for the nhl. i understand the hesitancy among the league owners with injuries and interrupting the season but the increased exposure still has to benefit them.

i woke up at 6a to watch every usa game in socchi and will likely just passively follow along this year. and, as was previously discussed, the women's tournament will likely be far more compelling.

but yeah, to demonstrate what i mean, here's a crowd in pittsburgh cheering louder for opposing goalie ryan miller (who was a brick wall for the usa in 2010) than sid crosby right after the 2010 games.

No words for how much I hate the NHL

They will absolutely be at Beijing 2022 though so this generation of players will at least get 1 look at the Olympics
