The 2014 Olympic Games are just days away, and the SportsTalk Live panel is wondering if having NHL players participate is a good thing.

The promotability on a world scale is certainly beneficial, but the Games also require the NHL to shut down for nearly a month, owners must worry about potential injuries to star players and potential security concerns in Sochi, and coaches worry about fatigue as players come back to the United States (and Canada) and prepare for the stretch run of the season and into the playoffs.

So, all things considered, are the Olympic Games a good or bad thing for the NHL?
