Dilemma For Players

from Barry Melrose of ESPN,
I am excited about the Games and I'll be interested in seeing how the final rosters play out up until the start of the tournament. But there will be a dilemma for players who could really use the two weeks to rest up and heal injuries. Players are paid big money by their NHL teams to play in the NHL. The bonuses aren't big enough to risk getting hurt in the Olympics. Players' allegiances should be to the NHL, not the Olympics. I think you owe your loyalty to your team.
