NHL participation in the 2018 Pyeongchang, South Korea Olympic Games seems unlikely at the moment, if you ask commissioner Gary Bettman.
The NHL last met with the IOC in February and did not come away with much progress towards an agreement. "There are no negotiations ongoing," Bettman told Reuters. "As things stand now people should assume we are not going." That's quite grim, but it's worth noting that nothing is official and so we should take this report with a grain of salt. The NHL wants to be compensated for shutting down its season for half a month, plus insurance, travel and accommodations like it has been for the previous five Winter Games. The IOC quoted the NHL at $15M to $20M to do just that, which Bettman noted the NHL has no interest in covering. "If they don't value our participation why are we going," Bettman queried rhetorically. Again, anything can still happen. Including players going anyway, just as Alex Ovechkin has already stated he intends to. Meaning Bettman won't just have the IOC to contend with should "negotiations", such as they are, continue to drag on Mar 21 - 5:48 PM
