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.
World Cup just isn't that good hockey anymore. Last World Cup was really inferior hockey compared to e.g. 2008 and 2009 Worlds.
