Considering that the quality of hockey is far superior in the WC than in the WJC.
I don't think the quality of a particular league or tournament alone determine how interested people are in it. Personally, when I lived back in Europe, I also much preferred EBEL to the NHL, just because it was my local league and was more emotionally involved with the teams I was cheering for.

Exactly. There are also other factors that determine what people like and what they don't. I mean, I like the sport of hockey in general, and while, yes, it is better to watch games where the level of play is higher all other factors being equal, other stuff can tip the scales.
