Injuries A Big Concern

from the Globe and Mail,
There has been some concern that a single career-ending injury to an elite professional could put an end to NHL participation in the Olympics, but so far there has been no such incident. Despite waves of panic in Ottawa -- and an admission by the Senators that they all but ordered Hasek to return -- Hasek's injury is not considered, at the moment, that serious. Yet, even a small injury can have profound effect in such a short tournament where, toward the end, each game essentially boils down to sudden-death play.
