yes, as it is for the other leagues in any team sport that requires it...

the NHL was the only league that was able to negotiate that privilege of having their insurance cost paid by the IOC, but, as @hckosice wrote, it was a mid-term agreement, which expired after the Sochi Olympics...

and, not to be forced to follow the same policy with other sports/leagues, the IOC and the IIHF had to refuse going on with that...otherwise it would have become not sustainable for them...

hopefully, next NHL CBA would include the Olympic stoppage as mandatory for the NHL, even if the NHL teams owners have already said that they are ready to face another lockout, but they would not give up such things so easily...

we'll see in the next years, when the next CBA wil be negotiated...

 

The players will end up paying for it with a smaller share of hockey-related revenues.

The problem is that for basketball in the summer is fun with nba players but you don't have to stop the league (Like you would have for baseball)      and it is not the main attraction.  And if that will stop, i dont believe the damage will be severe.      Winter however was more dependant on NHL since its really the only main stream team sport.   So the IOC had to pay up.  However i dont know how from here we go back to NHL participating.   My feeling is that Beijing will also not have NHL players.   Maybe next North American winter games if calgary gets 2026 or USA 2030

 

Nah, the games being in China will force the NHL hand. There's a reason they signed up to play 6 pre-season games over there.

I think many players would've agreed to it for this year, i remember Ovechkin saying he is planning to play anyway, it's about country pride, and i'm sorry, the 8 team World Cup of Hockey is not an alternative!

Yep. You can bet the NHLPA has securing Olympic participation as a mandate for the next CBA. And Bettman probably knows it.

Olympic athletes from Russia is not Russia? where so much neglect and hatred...

 

It was just a joke.  The announcers are so careful about the 'appropriate' name.  I was just making fun of that.
