It would be awesome to see a best on best tournament again. Canada has the best forwards by a mile,but the US has a better D and so might Sweden. Finland will also ice a competitive squad and so will the Russians.

Canada
US
Sweden

Finland
Russia

Czech
Slovakia

Who cares?

There's a handful of talented Swiss players as well... Josi, Fiala, Meier, Hischier, Niederreiter... Sbisa... and they always have good goaltending.
They could be good for an upset or two.

Hopefully they make Sbisa captain...

Miller probably gets moved to #3C at this rate on Team USA, kicking Larkin out.

Boeser, Hughes, yes, Demko is playing his way onto the team now: Hellebuyck, Demko, Gibson trio.

There are some good teams in this. But if Canada doesn’t win with McDavid, Mackinnon, ROR, Crosby, Couturier, Makar etc it will be a major choke job. Goaltending could be our only weakness.

IIHF upping the stakes, gonna buy insurance w/covid coverage for NHL players for the Olympics.
The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) has acquired insurance for the players of the National Hockey League (NHL). Now athletes will be able to take part in qualifications for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.

The IIHF has agreed to pay for insurance immediately for all athletes who have an agreement with the NHL. Moreover, the organization will pay for insurance in case of infection with coronavirus. But this applies only to those hockey players who have signed contracts with clubs for at least two years

However, the NHL and the League Players Association still reserve the right to withdraw from the 2022 Games if doing so creates the potential for health and safety risks.

So NHL players to the Olympics is a go it appears.
