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.
