I can't believe some people even remotely agree with Cherry's point, pathetic.
This. Most who agree are coming out of the woodwork with bitterness now that Canada has not struck gold 3 straight years. 4 years ago it was "Is Canada's dominance ruining this tournament?" Now all of a sudden it's "Should they restrict the CHL to only Canadian players so it can develop its own players better and not help foreign countries?"
The worry is overblown. Try being like England who created soccer, but sees "their game" dominated by everyone else with their country being World Cup-less in over 4 decades! Now THAT is national despair over a favoured sport, not failing to get a medal in the WJC for only the 3rd time in 30 years! That's a mini-slump and with Canada's hockey resources it'll be overcome.
