this small hype can maybe help countries where hockey is not that well established (germany, swizerland, austria mainly). i think at least for worldcup/olympics it's nice for the US/canada participate in those tournaments with high quality competition (or at least tolerable "place fillers" besides swe/fin/rus).

see it as some kind of development aid
