The vast majority of the players want to be in the Olympics. The owners get their panties in a bunch because of injury risk (look at Zetterberg and now Tavares from today's game) and want the IOC or IIHF to pay for the insurance.

People are speculating that the next Olympics won't be as big of a deal because they're in South Korea so no players are going to feel the need to go and play in front of a home audience.
