On if the NHL doesn’t go to the Olympics
Pierre LeBrun: “In the event the NHL-NHLPA pull out of the Olympics, what about the rest of the NHL sked with 3 weeks off?

Again, plan remains to go to the Olympics as of now. Jan. 10 opt-out deadline for NHL-NHLPA. But if for whatever reason they pull out, there’s a gap in the sked to use to some degree but players would still get a break.”
