No NHL employees in World Championships?


TSN is reporting that a source has indicated that the NHL will not allow NHL employees to participate in the upcoming World Championships in Austria:
A source has told TSN the NHL will not allow anyone in the league or employees to take part in the Worlds.
While this is said not to include NHL players, this means that Wayne Gretzky will no longer be able to head up the Canadian entry into the tournament.

This is ridiculous. Why on Earth not? I will refrain from further comment until this is verified or an explanation is given because it really makes little sense to me at the moment.

    Uh, Brett, what in the NHL ever makes any sense? If anyone there had any sense, we'd have NHL hockey right now. It wouldn't be such a shock to me if they did something like this. I guess they're afraid of any contact management might have with player.

    Yea, good point. The NHL has a few loose screws.

    I'd still like to hear an offical explanation as to why, because on it's face, it's goofy.
