Canada vs. Slovakia was very exciting because when the team you are rooting for has arguably 10 of the top 20 players in the world and is dominating a lesser team, you tend to enjoy the game more. A league that has the most of the top talent on 1 team, the way this tournament does, wont last. Did you see any of the games in Prague or Germany? The seats were half filled. Ratings are lower than the Cup because everyone knows who is going to win.

If you want to save the game, just take out the teams in the south: Nashville, Atlanta, Carolina, Florida and some other non hockey market teams like Anaheim. The talent level will get a huge boost, there will be less clutching and grabbing as a result, the teams will be more evenly matched, and more people will want to see that!
