Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Etan Vlessing of the Hollywood Reporter,
Canada’s CBC network this week secured the local broadcast and digital rights to the 2014 and 2016 Olympics, but with a twist.
The pubcaster isn’t talking terms for its contract for the Sochi and Rio de Janeiro Games with the IOC, but the speculation is the CBC will pay less if the National Hockey League doesn’t send its pro players to Sochi.
Whether NHL players participate in the Winter Olympics will be decided during the current negotiations on a new labor deal between the pro hockey league and the NHL Player’s Association.
