There is a fair amount of truth in the article by the IIHF guy, but I do have a number of issues with it. One, I am not a fan of calling out a guy who answers the bell nearly every time that he was called. Two, I did not like how heavily he implied that the way to give back to the world of hockey is to play in IIHF tournaments. At least in Canada, players, including many who never will be asked to wear the Maple Leaf, give much more back to hockey through mentorship, training opportunities, and money given to minor hockey organizations than by participating in the World Hockey Championships.
