The WC's are just a european tournament. North American teams don't care because their players are still playing in the real tournament that actually matters (Stanley Cup). The tournament will not mean a thing to anyone in North America when they know the vast majority of their team's rosters are basically glorified AHL'rs and somehow supposed to represent the best they can send..

If the Euro's actually cared about world competition they'd want to move the tourny to a time that doesnt conflict with the NHL playoffs. And if they don't they're totally content with going against our AHL chumps and thinking they beat something worthwhile. I think these last olympics showed what kind of hockey the North American's can play when they actually put forth the kinds of teams they are capable of.
