Russian Hockey Federation President Reveals NHL Wants Sochi Olympic Concessions

Russian Hockey Federation President Vladislav Tretyak said that the NHL is interested in allowing its stars to play at next year's Sochi Olympics but is "demanding TV rights concessions and rule changes," according to R-SPORT. Negotiations between the NHL, the IOC and hockey's global governing body, the IIHF, were held last week in New York, "but the situation remains unresolved." Tretyak, who is involved on the IIHF side, said, "In general, there is interest from the NHL. But they are laying down terms that can be accepted only at the level of the International Olympic Committee. In the NHL, they want to get special TV rights and, for example, permits for the general manager to enter dressing room" (R-SPORT, 2/19)
