I will watch curling and hockey at the Winter Olympics all day long.  Most of the individual sports, I don't care about at all.  Speed skating and ski jumping are probably it.

 

The winter games need to find their own version of beach volleyball.  $$$$$

Random question that just came to mind:

 

If a player signs with his NHL team but is then returned to major junior, would he be eligible for the Olympics?  For the sake of example, let's plug in Nolan Patrick's name, someone who clearly would be on team Canada's radar if he was an option.

USA GM rules out taking draft eligible players to the Olympics
 

Johannson tells The Associated Press he doesn’t view anyone from the 18-and-younger pool of prospects capable of cracking the projected lineup of non-NHL players, many of whom are opening this season playing in Europe.
 
USA Hockey’s assistant executive director says he’s also targeting a number of established college players, and would not rule out keeping a spot or two open for members of the U.S. team competing at the World Junior Championships this winter.
