I mean, looking at the attendance in Europe, I can guarantee that Canada would have higher attendance despite playoff hockey.... and most Canadian teams don't go too far anyways.

EDIT: I guess none of the NHL arenas can commit to them, but other arenas should be available.
Regardless of arena availability, you need people and sponsors who are committed to organizing and promoting the tournament. At this time of year, folks in Canada care more about things like the Stanley Cup and Memorial Cup.
