Rene Fasel Hoping For A Miracle

from Nick Butler of inside the games,

"It would take a miracle, maybe [for the NHL to fully participate]," Fasel told insidethegames during the IOC Coordination Commission inspection visit here.

"But I think the decision was done the NHLPA and NHL, so I think it would take something really special to happen.

"All the NHL players who would like to participate so they have to be on the long list from October 1, concerning World Anti-Doping Agency testing etc.

"The NHLPA and the NHL have to find a way.

"Actually the [NHL] PA is looking into  if this is possible, on the legal side.

"The League decision is the owners' decision, so there are some legal questions to find out over if the players are allowed to come or not.
