Reasons for a year-round international Hockey calendar? (like Rugby, Soccer, Cricket)

I don't know how much interest I would have in a year round international calendar featuring a bunch of test/friendly matches (or a best of 3, 5 or 7 series) just for the sake of having games and since it will never happen it really doesn't matter anyway.
With that being said the fact that international hockey featuring full strength squads is confined to a single tournament, which is held hostage everytime the NHL/NHLPA CBA expires, that lasts less than two weeks every four years is really unfortunate. The interest that is generated by international hockey (WC in Europe, WJC & WCup in Canada, Olympics everywhere hockey has even a bit of relevance) leads me to believe there is certainly a demand for it and opportunities are being lost.
