Olympics question

Recommended Posts

So I'm looking over the hockey rosters for various teams I generally root for, and something just popped in my head. Haven't heard anything in a while, but is Alex Ovechkin going to carry out his plan to play in these Olympics no matter what the Capitals of NHL say?

I don't have a link handy, but I remember hearing on the Puck Podcast that he backed off his stance. He's not playing.

It doesn’t matter. Russia’s been banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics over doping.

Sort of. There will be a lot of "Olympic Athletes from Russia" participating. The "ban" is pretty flimsy.

No, it's not. The Russian athletes who are competing are the ones who (as far as anyone can tell) didn't dope.

Regardless, there won’t be a “Team Russia.”
