06:09 AM ET 02.21 | Will the world's best players be in Sochi? The NHL is interested in allowing its stars to play at next year's Sochi Olympics but is demanding TV rights concessions and rule changes, the Russian Hockey Federation president and three-time gold medalist Vladislav Tretiak told R-Sport. Negotiations between the NHL, the International Olympic Committee and hockey's global governing body, the IIHF, were held last week in New York, but the situation remains unresolved. "In general, there is interest from the NHL," Tretiak, who is involved on the IIHF side, told R-Sport. "But they are laying down [terms] that can be accepted only at the level of the International Olympic Committee."
