Every time it is held in Canada, every game seems sold out no matter who is playing.

I went to the games in Buffalo, NY in 2009 and every game was pretty packed outside of Latvia/Germany type games.
Apparently, according the geniuses at the IIHF, the best way to promote the tournmanet is to suck the life out of it. At least they could have it in worthwhile destinations. More games in Prague, less in remote villages.
