from Mike G. Morreale of NHLcom via VancouverCanucks.com,
“Obviously when you’re away for that length of time you get concerned,” Vancouver General Manager Mike Gillis told NHL.com. “But the Olympic break does break up the trip, so it’s really two segments of a trip as opposed to one long month away from home. We’re making the best of a situation that’s really beyond our control, and we’re trying to manage it and be as competitive as we can.”...
“The Olympics are an extremely important event, and we could possibly have up to eight players participating from our team,” Gillis said. “It’s a huge event for British Columbia and Canada and we’re going to do our part to make sure it’s as positive and as well-managed as it’s going to be. It’s really up to us to manage it appropriately and get our players ready for it and that’s what we intend to do.”
