I've never liked professionals playing in the Olympics. Afaik, the NBA started it and just made it about who would lose to the US in the gold medal game.

I know it's different with hockey but I feel the Olympics should be left to amateurs. The same goes for boxing.

While the Olympics is almost always a loss for the host country due to the corruption and scam setup that the IOC uses to steal from the host countries, I think hockey gets good attention from countries with no pro hockey athletes. It is fun to watch the pro's at the olympics but I think they should restrict it to ameteur only like all the other sports they have there.
