Without mentioning teams/players, the answer is yes. NHL was approached by certain players thru their GM. Battling injuries & need to heal.
What I would have liked is a player like Pavel Datsyuk, selected to the team then replaced due to injury.
Datsyuk is scheduled to return right around the time of the All-Star Game and probably would have opted-out even if he happens to play a game or two before the break.
