let`s call a spade a spade, there`s a reason why this Tournament is held so often in Canada and it`s due to the fact that the fans here will often push a solid attendance for even soft games. The Junior game, although I am sure well respected and regarded elsewhere, just doesn`t have the same mass appeal as it does here in Canada.

I`ve been to two WJHC tournaments in the USA, one in Boston where the attendance was horrific (at a time when their Junior program was nowhere near as strong as it is now) , the other in Grand Forks and Thief River Falls where the support was great with an estimated 4,000 Canadian fans alone such as I mading the short trek accross the border.

Junior hockey just doesn`t resonate accross the pond with anywhere near the support as it seems to here in NA
