TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie, Pierre LeBrun and Darren Dreger have the latest on security and safety at the Sochi Olympic Games, if the NHL is ready to expand video review and who might be available and who might be on the move in Edmonton.
How big an issue is security and safety at the Sochi Olympics?
Darren Dreger: It is a concerning issue. The threat of terrorism always is going to be concerning for a world spectacle such as this and that's not lost on neither the Players' Association and National Hockey League. Both will tell you that their guest list, be it family or friends, is reducing on a week-by-week basis leading up to the Olympic Games but the NHL is confident that their safety will be insured by the Russian government and the International Olympic Organization. But if there were significant terrorist attempts or attacks prior to the Olympics in Sochi, I think that the NHL and the NHLPA also wouldn't hesitate to remove themselves from the Games.
