I meant WHC is inferior to Olympics as it is not best-on-best and winning it is not as great of an accomplishment as it is held every year. On the subject though of a comparison to the NHL playoffs, WHC is arguably a lesser brand of hockey save for one or two teams, there are 16 NHL teams with a chance to win compared to 5 or 6, and the fact that it is the culmination of a 9 month season makes it a greater accomplishment.
