a legend and an out of work bum look a lot alike, daddy.
That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

It should be handled like the world juniors. None of this take a year off nonsense to train with Olympic team. Have a camp and select a team. How long are the olympics? How many college games would a player miss?
So has there been any clarification if this only applies to rostered NHL players, or anyone with a contract? So could they draw from AHL players? If AHL'ers played, between them and European league players, there might not be that many college players who would play.
I'm assuming players on two-way contracts are out.
So... yeah, the US and Canada are boned.

I think it's in the best interests, beyond financial support, for the IOC and Bettman and Co. to head back to the negotiating table and cut a deal. You can't put a price on the patriotism the Olympics represents in the minds of millions of fans. I kinda think we haven't heard the end of the story yet.
Ovie says he's going.
