NHL will reevaluate sending players to Sochi if something 'significant' happens before Feb. 9

The NHL will reevaluate sending its players to the Sochi Olympics next month if something "significant" happens before Feb. 9.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly says in an email to The Associated Press that he doesn't expect it will be become necessary to keep NHL players home because of the steps taken by the Sochi Organizing Committee, the Russian government and the International Olympic Committee. But he says the league will re-assess if it appears to be "an unreasonably dangerous situation" in Russia.

Russian security has been looking for three potential female suicide bombers, one of whom is believed to be in Sochi. The country has assembled what is believed to be the biggest security operation ever for an Olympics with more than 50,000 police and soldiers.
