Obviously you are going to have to search really hard and dig really deep to find any interest in the U.S. for a non-existent hockey tournament, that's just conjecture at this point.. Why do you think that when the U20 WC is in the U.S. they put it within driving distance of the Canadian border? I was speaking of what would fly in Canada and what would have the interest of the hard core hockey fan in the U.S... and more than anything else, a revived World Cup or a semi-regular Canada-USA series would generate more interest than a European type scenario where Euro leagues have 4 breaks per season to accommodate international games. That sort of scenario would not fly in N.America neither with Canadian or American fans.
