Deputy commish Bill Daly: NHL in no rush to discuss Olympics

The NHL isn’t going to get drawn into any discussions about participating in future Winter Olympics until after the Pyeongchang Games are complete.

Jimmy Graham Mens Jersey Deputy commissioner Bill Daly said that’s the answer he provided to International Ice Hockey Federation general secretary Horst Lichtner on Friday. Daly and Lichtner happened to sit together during the first period of the world junior hockey championship outdoor game between the United State and Canada being played at New Era Field.

The issues with each Olympics are different, Daly said. Obviously, some of the logistical difficulties we have with South Korea will be the same in China. But maybe there are some opportunities in China that aren’t in South Korea.

Andre Branch Mens Jersey Saban said that it wasn’t until after 1 a.m. that Alabama began packing up to leave the Allstate Sugar Bowl after beating Clemson 24-6, which meant that the team needed to spend the night in New Orleans and return to Tuscaloosa in the morning.

If anything, Saban said he would like an extra travel day between the semis and the title game to account for the lost time.

Alabama will spend three days at home before going back on the road to Atlanta to prepare for Monday’s game against Georgia.

Whether Saban will have a full complement of players remains to be seen.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Saban said injured offensive lineman Lester Cotton and linebacker Anfernee Jennings were still being evaluated and that he hoped to update their statuses soon.
