They are not suggesting to cancel the World Championships, but they are speculating that NHL participation may be limited. The World Championships would still go on. Nothing has been made official and it is just speculation at this point. Clearly the IIHF pissed off Betman though. Who gets the money from the World Championships? Where does it go?

No clue what you are talking about. I posted a link to HNIC from CBC.
