I used to be all for this but now think everyone including the NHL should boycott the Beijing Olympics. They are toxic and will damage the NHLs image. People are already turning on the NBA for their fealty to China.

If the NHL can do this why can't the NFL and MLB so the same? We wouldn't have to be holding the Olympics in heat hellish July & August.

NFL schedule doesn't conflict with the summer Olympics. . . .

Personally, I'm not too happy with the NHL taking a break so people can watch synchronized skating or whatever.

Given the current NBA/Team USA Basketball situation, I think Major sports leagues are going to have more input for when Olympic tournaments are held going forward.

To note, the Phenonix Suns have one player in the finals and the Millwakee Bucks have 2. After finishing their game 7 (great series by the way) the players will fly out to Japan and have maybe 3 days and 1 full practice with Team USA before it’s game against France….not the best for recovery or health.

Love Olympic hockey, and it's much better when NHLers are there, so this is good news.
