Generally speaking, I agree. The tournament is now less about playing for your country as a team and more about being a part of TSN's yearly circus sideshow. As another poster said in another thread, these kids are heroes before they even play a game. So why should they be motivated?

Before you used to make your name by playing at the WJCs and playing well. Now you make your name at the selection camp or in one of a thousand TSN profiles or hype shows.
