Is Daly signalling that the NHL is not interested in the 2022 Olympics?

The league never wanted to go to Pyeongcheng, but they want to go to China due to population.
Like anything else, this is a negotiating tack. Players want Olympic participation, what are they willing to give up to get it, and what does the league get for it (travel costs taken care of, gaining access to game highlights, team officials have access to players, etc.)? Having said all that, if this Coronavirus gets worse the IOC may have to think about alternatives (reminder that FIFA moved the 2003 Women's World Cup out of China due to concerns over SARS). Not saying we're there, I'm saying that if the IOC isn't thinking about this they should be. Maybe it's a big nothing or maybe it's something else.

We know the NHL is not interested in the 2022 Olympics. Who needs signals.
