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.
So why do you think the Stanley Cup is a tournament that actually matters? Or matters more than anything else?

The Vancouver Olympics were just one moment in time. Go and check the outcome over the last twenty years my friend.
