It's not "best on best" because of the age restriction. It's an artificial and arbitrary constraint on the demonstration of a country's hockey skills, and affects smaller countries disproportionately.

There is only one and it's the Olympics.

The WHC and the World Cup/Canada Cups cancel each other out.
