Sure seems like Russia, Sweden, Finland the rest of the Euro hockey nations care. I would say only the general population of the USA doesn't care. They send their best Jrs, and that's what counts.
Again, hold the WHC at a time that doesnt conflict with the playoffs and you will see people start to care. But when you are going head to head with the most important hockey on the planet, you cannot win.
