    What does this now mean for the NHL? Are the olympics pretty much screwed?

    Why should this screw the Olympics>
    ANyway, I can see why they don't sign that thing. Must be frustrating to develop players and then they leave and the club gets an allowance.

    It can screw the Olympics because the NHL has to have a signed agreement with the IIHF in order for NHL players to play, and the League is reluctant to sign an agreement that excludes the Russian and Czech leagues.
