I'll try to keep this quick:
Is there any record of how the individual team owners voted regarding the league's Olympic participation? I know most anger is directed at Bettman, but he's just the front man. How did the Illitch's vote?
Also, there doesn't seem to be much outrage here in the US since 1) we typically are competitive but not dominant in hockey even with the NHL players and 2) hockey is not a major driver of professional sports here as compared to FB and BB. I'm curious if there is more widespread outrage in Canada, where they nearly always compete for gold in hockey and win very often (and have no other professional sports seriously challenging for media dominance annually). Tried to find some of this online, but I know there are enough knowledgeable board members to get a decent answer here. Thanks!
Edited for clarity.
