I too hope Russia and the other hosts reap big money for it, as it is a great draw!
I hope so as well. It will help to create interest in youth hockey in Russia, which can spur investment, but more importantly, improve the quality of entertaining, exciting hockey for fans like us to enjoy. Even though hockey arenas have increased in number and improved immensely in quality in recent years, there is still a long way to go to approach the quality of facilities and hockey operations that you have in Canada.
