    Does this also mean no AHL players, too? Are we back to college players and Americans playing in the European leagues?

    Can former UND forward and Blaine, MN native Brandon Bochenski play for the U.S even though he is now also a Kazak?

    Regardless, congrats to Jeff Taffe and Dan Sexton on making the U.S. Olympic team!

    Yes. Which means that the college players who just signed AHL deals just screwed themselves out of the Olympics. It's also why the ones that still haven't signed may hold off for a year if they can afford it.

    AHL players (and ECHL) are under the PHPA. NHL players (and those on NHL contracts are under the NHLPA). So, college kids who went un-drafted and recently signed AHL contracts should be okay to be selected. Worst case, they'll be suspended from their team for the month of February.


    Now, with the women getting a pay bump from USA hockey, I got wondering how the selection of Team USA will affect collegiate eligibility. Does being selected for the Olympics, and the associated practices and training (and being paid for it) cause the loss of NCAA eligibility?

    We know kids get selected to the World Juniors without affecting eligibility, but would these kids have to pay their own way to the Olympics?

    USHL kids receive a stipend from the league to cover living and travel expenses associated with the team. Would USA Hockey be able to do/claim the same for their Olympic players?

    No. There are exceptions for national teams, and college players on the women's team don't receive the same money the post-college players do to preserve their eligibility.

    EDIT: And Bucks Bochenski isn't eligible for the US. You get one switch in citizenship and after that you're stuck with who you picked.

    Marchand is at it again. 5 minute major for spearing and a game misconduct.

    And right where it counts for a man. Oh, I'm sure he'll get a phone call...

    And by virtue of a regulation win, the Bruins are in.

    The Wild wore 1967 North Star replicas for warm-ups. Parise wore his late father's helmet and gloves, which his mother had evidently dug out of the basement. Cool to see.

    I doubt the Dallas Stars would allow the Wild to play in those jerseys.

    Regarding the Olympics... meh.

    The only compelling international hockey for me since 96 has been the WJC.

    It was cool when the US was in the OT Olympic Gold Medal game a few years back, but the tourney itself didn't grab me and hasn't.

    WJC is some of my favorite hockey year in and year out.


    Upside is that 20-some Americans will get an Olympic experience that they otherwise wouldn't have.

    I think Burish is available.

    Uhh. 79-80 or 80-81?

    Or better phrasing: Atlanta or Calgary Flames?
