NHL deputy commissioner Daly thinks players will take part in 2014 Sochi Olympics

STOCKHOLM - NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly says the league is "proceeding under the assumption" its players will take part in the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

NHL representatives and international hockey and Olympic officials met in Stockholm on Friday in a new round of talks aimed at securing an agreement for the league's participation in the Sochi Games.

While no final deal was reached, the International Ice Hockey Federation said "all signs pointed" to NHL players going to the Olympics for a fifth straight time.

IIHF President Rene Fasel says "we have some issues left, but I, as always, remain optimistic."

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
