This is a best on best tournament, so whoever wins has earned the right to call itself the best junior hockey nation in the World. These are the rules that have been carefully laid out in 100 million Canadian posts, so don't back away from it now. Canada clearly is a heavy favorite to win, but if they should somehow lose, they should graciously accept 2nd, 3rd, or 4th place, whichever the case may be. The title "No. 1" will last until the next season-ending NHL lockout, which should be in about 5 years.
