    So many Russians stay in the KHL, or leave the NHL to return early to the KHL. Half of their players would have been on the Russian team even if the NHL released its players. Whereas 0 Canadians and 0 Americans would have been played in this Olympics had the NHL allowed players to go.

    Really isn't an impressive Gold Medal win at all, considering the circumstances.
    Agreed with everything.

    It definitely was a very exciting game and the way Germany gave up the equalizer with 45 seconds left was so heartbreaking.

    Wait, NHL doesn't allow its players to go to the Olympics?
    I thought football was the only sport where Olympic medal isn't the most prestigious.

    previously in winter olympics nhl players were free to participate, this year they had some sort of breakdown in relationship and nhl said no olympic break. apparently the clubs owners do not want the break, because that's a relatively quite time in American Sports and there's a money to be made for them and also there's always the risk of injury and the guaranteed fatigue of international players. the players of course are pissed off, I would be too if someone took away my chance at an Olympic gold

    in boxing as well Olympic gold isn't nearly as prestigious as the big belts

    dunno about tennis, Federer hasn't got an olympic medal, but I don't think that stops him from being the goat

    The league used the Olympics to try to bully the NHLPA into extending the current CBA for 3 more years, removing the players association option to opt out in 2019-20 (Deal runs to 2022). League wanted to tie players in until 2025. They offered Olympics in exchange for this. Which would mean the CBA would be 10 years + 3 instead of 8 years + 2.

    Players of course said no, as 13 years is a long time to have no negotiating power. And the league said no Olympics, unfortunately.
    It's been a prevalent notion. Fallen sparks. Fragments of vessels broken at the Creation. And someday, somehow, before the end, a gathering back to home. A messenger from the Kingdom, arriving at the last moment. But I tell you there is no such message, no such home -- only the millions of last moments . . . nothing more. Our history is an aggregate of last moments.

    I remember the lockouts of 04/05 and 12/13, what are their main problem usually, salaries?

    I love how Russia had to pay 15m to IOC because of 2 doping cases. One was barely doping (meldonium) in $#@!ing curling and the other in women bobsleigh, where their ladies finished 12th
