Marian Hossa, for one, is hoping the NHL commits to playing in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi Russia.
The Slovak has already played in three Olympic games for his country but would relish the opportunity to play in a fourth. "Players enjoy once every four years to represent their country," Hossa said. "It's always an honor when the best players are playing this top tournament in the world. It's a great idea. Every four years, I don't think it's going to hurt anybody. "If I'm healthy I'd definitely like to [play]," Hossa said.
