How's that? At the point the World Championships begin only 25% of NHL teams are still playing. Considering not all of the world's best players play in the NHL (Every KHL team and many other Euro teams have top lines are significantly better than third and fourth liners in the NHL), so your math is simply wrong. Everyone knows it's not Olympic caliber hockey, but its still the most exciting hockey tournament to attend as a spectator.
