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.
Well it's given Canadians would watch their team (but without a real point to it all, not that much) but what's the point of it to Americans? I seriously doubt USA Hockey would want to play games for the benefit of Canadians. I also doubt NHL players would have any interest in these type of games, not to mention the owners.
