    I was wrong but that's a complete joke. You ban a country from the Olympics yet allow their players to play. Joke, and I won't be watching one second of this loser tournament.

    What do you mean who cares? It's about integrity. It's a complete joke that Russians are allowed to compete.

    Who cares if the Russian players are under a different flag. It's still the Olympics. And certain guys are still not allowed to go based on drugs. And even though it's "about integrity", there's still many people cheating.

    I cant wait to watch. Olympic hockey is the best IMO and I suspect some teams will want it more than teams from previous Olympics.

    Teams without NHLers....


    Personally Im more interested this year because I feel like were gonna see some real feel good stories come out of this. Its nice to see Olympic hockey normally because of the skills. But they are still players on multi million dollar contracts. This will even out the bar a bit more between countries.

    Olympics and Integrity have not been friends for a long time. You get to see all the same athletes in various other competitions every year. And most of them without the IOC involved.
