  • If the NHL does not go to Korea, who goes?

    Do we send minor pros or a primary NCAA team?

    If NCAA, pick your squad.

      The Commish (Owners) says no. The sponsors and media say yes.

      The NHL wants their cut and video/media rights. If they get that, they go.

        That was my point. When they figure out the money they will be there. It’s always about the $$$$$$

          Is there really that much of a demand in South Korea? The Islanders are getting kicked out of "their" arena, the Coyotoes, another southern experiment in Vegas, and various teams with attendance declining. In many ways, more than just #of games played, the NBA and the NHL are similar, and the NBA is gonna start allowing sponsors on there jerseys. How about stabilizing the turbulent teams and expand into Canada instead.
          Just to be clear. My disinterest in this team became of the Uni's disinterest. Without the success of the hockey team, the other teams would not be where they are. Way to pay back the hockey team. **** UAA.

            Frozen Four winner becomes the US National team for 2017-18? Now that would be fun to watch.

              Because the falling Canadian dollar is already hurting the league and the smaller market Canadian team? http://spectorshockey.net/2015/01/po...ian-nhl-teams/ CSD is equal to 75 cents right now - that article talked about how below it being 85 cents the Canadian teams lose money.

              It's a nice idea but would any team have enough Americans on it to field an entire roster for the Olympics?

              My fear of it being college players is that we see guys get nationalized and take the year off from school. But essentially a WJC team with some older players and maybe the occasional AHL/European player would be somewhat fun to watch, even if I'd rather see the NHL go for growing the sport reasons.

                  You can't afford $75,000,000 annual salary loads based on what you make at the gate. 41 sold out games in Hamilton, ONT can't approach the kind of money you can get with good US TV ratings and selling jerseys to the 325 million people in the US. If you want a Canada-based league, tell the players they better be ready to accept CFL-level salaries.

                    Whoa there. Before anyone else gets their knickers in a knot, let's be clear that this thread is about whether or not the NHL/NHLPA will allow their players to participate in the 2018 Pyeongchang, Korea, Winter Olympics. It is NOT about NHL expansion (especially to Korea). That being said, I agree with what a couple of other posters said about it's being all about Benjamins and Loonies. If enough of them are there, it's business as usual. And IMO, enough of them will be there.

                      The college players being nationalized was the norm before 94.

                          Some teams could use that exemption still on the books again.

                            With the Canadian dollar still running under 75˘ US, that's not going to happen.
