#2483102 NHL players will not participate in 2018 Olympics (Mod Post #99)

2002 says hello

 

I was being sarcastic.

Huh?  I don't get what you're saying.  The European players are going to play in a different league for a year so they can play in the Olympics?  I some how don't see that happening.  I don't think its THAT big of a thing.  

 

The USA hasn't won a gold medal since 1980.  No one really cares.  Canada hasn't dominated the Olympic games since the NHL has participated either.  Canada hasn't been a powerhouse internationally of late either.   

 

I don't see why they don't just play in the Summer Olympics.  Basketball does and its a "Winter" sport.  No reason you can't switch things like gymnastics or swimming to the Winter games.

 

Of course not, they only won gold in 2010.

During a Friday afternoon appearance on TSN 1050 Radio in Toronto, TSN reporter Darren Dreger passed along the news that the NHL "will not" participate in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, which will be hosted in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Not really that surprising. When do Olympic clauses start getting introduced ? :lol:

#2482801 2/8 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Lightning 4

Kronwall 8th in the league in points for Dmen.  Only 2 have a better +/- and that's Keith and Pietrangelo.  If anyone thinks Kronwall isn't a #1 Dman, especially playing with a lower quality blue line than we're used to, is crazy.  And as far as points go, he's only 3 behind Subban for 5th overall.

 

Not to mention, he is on a great contract for us.

#2480676 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

Posted by darkmanx on 03 February 2014 - 07:30 PM

I just want him to get well soon and even if he is holding back in order to  be ready for the olympics so what?

 

The guy has given fans and especially this organization so much joy, he now has a once in a lifetime opportunity = captain your national hockeyteam in the olympics in your fatherland !

 

All I know is, I will enjoy watching him showing off his magic on the big ice. All the best Pasha

 

This. Sometimes fans get a little bit too greedy. I'm just happy he's around another 3 years.

Datsyuk has given enough to us that he deserves to do what he can to be healthy.
Whether that means sitting out wings games so he won't come back too much worse than he was after is fine.
Hell be here for three years after this year.
I trust hell do whats right, and honestly he's one of the best players and people to ever play the game.
I'd support him through whatever.

 

This. I am just extremely happy he's signed for another 3 years. He could have just left us last year and went to Russia.

 

Let him do his thing. We love Pasha too much to turn on him.

Our 1st PP unit needs to simplify.  Our 2nd is just deadly.

 

Now just imagine how good our PP's will be when Datsyuk and Z get back.
