What's easier, for the NHL to start and finish a month earlier, or for every league in europe to change schedule(so that they don't finish 2 months before the WHC) and move the WHC to summer(when hockey needs to compete with other sports) ?
And on top of that, you have the NHL contemplating whether or not to stop the league even for the olympics, complaining about how much money it costs them...unreal.
Sorry, but this isn't even a debate.
