Jakub Voracek called the Olympics decision absolutely ridiculous. Erik Karlsson said it's crap. Evgeny Kuznetsov said he'd follow his Capitals teammate overseas, while Connor McDavid and Jonathan Toews, two of the sport's biggest names, publicly expressed their disappointment.

Even as droves of superstars made sure their voices were heard, Ovechkin's longstanding desire to defy the norm, and to do it his way, felt like the lone glimmer of hope for fans and players, making everyone believe that all parties could work past the numerous complications involved in sending the league's most treasured figures to Korea for the love of the sport.

As adamant as he was, Ovechkin's wish ultimately fell by the wayside Thursday night, when he finally conceded defeat in the form of a heartfelt statement that all but assured http://www.hockeyfanswear.com/mikael-backlund-c-1_229_249.html not a single NHLer will participate.

Me, my teammates, and all players who want to go all lose. So do all the fans of hockey, with this decision that we are not allowed to be invited. NHL players in the Olympics is good for hockey and good for Olympics. It sucks that (we will) not be there to play!! Ovechkin wrote.
