Talks over NHL players heading to Sochi underway

NEW YORK — A decision on whether NHL players will head to the 2014 Sochi Olympics isn’t likely this week, but a first day of discussions went well.

Talks between the NHL, the NHL players’ association, and officials from the International Ice Hockey Federation and the International Olympic Committee stretched into the night as the parties worked toward getting NHL players back to the Olympics for a fifth straight time.

There are obstacles in the process, but the sides will cotinue talks today.

While the NHL and the players might want to participate in the Olympics again, they have to figure out if it makes sense for them to interrupt another season to make it possible.
