Good thing about hockey is the best team doesn't always win in a single game. Thats what makes it exciting.
It all depends on what your definition of "best" is.
You and I have a different opinion.
Best to me is "who can throw out the best hockey team with the fewest restrictions on who is available".
Both the WHC and the WJC have inherent restrictions on who countries are able to put into the line-up.
