He's right in that its mostly people in Canada don't care about it, but the reasons are just as invalid as the reasons for people in North America not enjoying the World Championships.
If you like hockey, and you like international hockey, both of these tournaments offer just that. Good international hockey. Complain all you want about "validity" and "what the tourney proves", a true fan doesn't really care and just sits back and enjoys it.
