And you think that's why Canadians pay through the roof to attend World Juniors in Canada (20 million dollar profit) so that HC can afford to pay associated costs.)

Like I said, I was just told this and hearing that it brought to mind the news item from last year.
The insurance thing doesn't make sense to me. Doesn't Hockey Canada provide insurance for a full roster of NHLers every year at the world championships? I'm asking cuz I don't know. If they do, insurance for RNH couldn't possibly keep him from going.
