Afternoon Line- Peter Adler On The NHL And The Olympics

...the question of Olympic participation should have nothing in common with the CBA negotiations, and if these talks get stalled on this topic, it would be a sign that the players don’t know what they want, and that they won’t rest until they’ve got it.

As it is, they are crying at a wrong funeral.

-Peter Adler, who has much more on this at the Edmonton Journal.

The Next World Cup Of Hockey May Look Like This

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet,

As opposed to the 2016 World Cup, which ran prior to the start of the NHL season, they would be looking at an in-season tournament which takes place over an extended All-Star break in 2021.

Of course, the shorter tournament in 2021 would mean fewer teams than they had in 2016 — which included Team Europe and Team North America.

“It would be kind of a mini-tournament about a week in length,” Deputy Commissioner Bill Day told Sportsnet. “Tack on a couple of days to the typical all-star break and fit it in an international event.”

Obviously, Olympic participation is a more pressing issue for players and fans alike, but we already know which countries field teams in an Olympic tournament. The next World Cup is NHL/NHLPA property, and as such can be sculpted any way the two sides decide.
