The NHL's Olympic break is less than two weeks away but the threat of terrorism is keeping the situation volatile.
After deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league would consider pulling out of Sochi if something "significant" happens before players arrive, those set to participate are trying not to worry about that scenario.
"Between the NHL and the NHLPA and the Olympic people, in communication obviously with the people in Russia, they're going to advise us if we shouldn't go," Ken Holland of Canada's management team said Tuesday. "I'm looking at the lead of the NHL.
"Until they tell us we're not going, I'm going to Newark and going to jump on a plane and go to Sochi."
A Hockey Canada spokesman said the organization had no official comment, adding nothing has changed about the situation.
