I'm all for a junior world cup but make it a true championship. Hold it every four years with the best under 20 players competing in August before training camps open. Get the NHL and NCAA on side so that even those with NHL and NCAA teams can play. That would be sweet. The problem with the Russian proposal is the lack of a level playing field. The number of junior teams in each country varies greatly. Who would the U.S send? A USJHL team? Hardly fair to them.
Make it a true world cup and it would help grow the game worldwide.
