So what if some players aren't available or refuse. That's your nations problem. It's still best nations in the world vs. best nations in the world tournament.

And it's equal for all the top teams. And, it isn't always the best players who is missing because of the Stanley Cup, many is missing because the National Team doesn't go out and say that if players say no, they won't be asked later. In some of the nations there really are bad attitudes about representing their nation. No pride.
To be the best, don't you have to beat the best?

Also to say Canadians have no pride in representing their country is laughable. That is higher on many kids lists than even the NHL.

I wish the WHC was more important, but in NA it just isn't we have the NHL playoffs and that is number 1. If it was pushed back a month or 2, you would see a big increase in viewership/player attendance and then it would become a true best on best.
