I think both countries are better served from a developmental standpoint of playing those 5 games than the 6 or 7 they play in the Czech Rep. every august.

The U.S. sort of loses its advantage of playing together for the entire year as both teams will be coming off summer training, hold a 2 week camp and play the 5 games...
That would be great but when do some of these kids get an off season? I think kids need some time off to relax,rehab and enjoy other things in life. I think that's why US Hockey shuts them down for a bit and gives other kids a chance.
