Shawn Thornton doesn't think players will end up taking it too easy during the Olympic break.
Those that aren't playing in Sochi will get to spend some time vacationing before they have to return to their team's for practice. That creates potential problems as teams or players that have momentum could lose it and players could get rusty. Still, Thornton is confident that those NHLers on break won't lose sight of the bigger picture. "Guys do a pretty good job of staying in shape during the break," he said. "They may take 4-5 days off to enjoy it at first, but then everybody is back working out wherever they are. Nobody gets out of shape anymore. Everybody takes care of themselves." He added that it might be in contrast to 2010, where he felt guys were a little sloppy in the games immediately after the break. It helps that those not participating in the Olympics will have a week of team practices before play resumes. Feb 11 - 9:48 AM
