Nobody gives a single **** about the WBC

Soccer, Rugby and Cricket have successful international tournaments however, but they also aren't run by single leagues who give one country home ice (field) advantage every time it's held.
If there's no NHLers at the Olympics, and the only alternative is an NHL-run competition, I'd rather there not be ANY "best-on-best" hockey tournament at all.
japan, korea , taiwan,venzuela,dominan republic, puerto rico, cuba, curacao, aruba does
