Men's Ice Hockey Tournament at the Winter Olympic Games 2018

Recommended Posts

Still cant believe that we wont watch best players in Korea. Its very shamefull that one privately hold organisation is stronger that IOC. How IOC compeled with the fact that NHL wont let their players to compete in Korea? Whats next,prohibiting NBA players from Tokyo... 

Every year IOC do something to degrade itself...

It's not the IOC's fault. This was a negotiation between the IIHF and the NHL. It came down to NHL owners not wanting to risk losing their players to injury, as well as the fact that games would air in the middle of the night and provide no value to the NHL, NBC or Sportsnet in terms of television revenue.

 

The NHL will be back in 2022 because they want to break into the Chinese market, and will also be back in 2026 assuming the Games go to Calgary (which is looking increasingly likely). NHL players will demand that the Olympics be included in their next arbitration agreement or there will be another lockout.

I didnt know that. At least something good. Thanks for the insight.:yes

I think that both IIHF and IOC must have done more to include best players. We are living in consumers world,only profit is important,i am aware of that,but to ban players to take part at the games,most important competition of their life just because NBC cant make a profit out of it... Just speachles.
