Love international best on best – hopefully it goes ahead
Cool – I love olympic hockey and it’s best when the best players in the world play.
LOL, China in same group as Canada and US. Given how lopsided these games will be, the PRC might have to censor domestic coverage of them.
Hope it happens, look forward to it.
Never been a fan of professionals playing in the Olympics. I hope no Hawks players go, can’t afford an injury to anyone. Hope they learned a lesson with Dach
Count on at least S Jones MAF Kane DCat Reichel Kubalik going – also possibly Lankinen and outside chances to Toews and Murphy
