HOCKEY ANALYST: NHL "ALMOST A SURE THING" FOR OLYMPICS
Published April 24, 1995
SportsChannel analyst Peter McNab said it is "almost 100 percent certain" the NHL will be involved in the '98 Olympics. McNab predicts the league will take a 10-day rest during the Games and each of the six countries with the most NHL players will get a bye into the final week of Olympic competition. McNab says the six teams would then be joined by the top two teams from the preliminary competition for an eight-team tournament. NHL VP of Public Relations Arthur Pincus confirmed McNab's account as "the general framework being discussed," but said the league was still discussing options with the NHLPA. Pincus: "We haven't said we would participate. It's up to the players' association" (AP/Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 4/22).
