And yeah, the media coverage just isn't there. The tournament website would be hard to find if it wasn't for this thread. The idea is great but has some ways to go still.
Next year this tournament is open to bids from other cities... I was reading an article on a Russian website where Medvedev was quoted as saying there is a lot of interest in N. America to host it next year. I don't see it...but I'll guess we'll find out soon enough... if it becomes a tournament of champions, i.e. The Halifax Mooseheads playing this year (without of course Drouin and Mackinnon)... so until Hockey Canada gets serious I don't see why I should bother with this.
