That completely goes against Hockey Canada's interests. Hockey Canada didn't get anything from the Canada/World Cup. It was an NHL event.
They however would make good money off of hosting the World Championships, and they most definitely want their best players in the Olympics.
As has been stated many times in this thread, Canada doesn't bid on the World Championships because they made an agreement not to do so with the IIHF which gave them the U20's every other year in return.
