There was a similar thing held in Sheffield this summer for girls, attended by Crosby's sister. Apparently the Canada and USA organisations set it up because they've been threatened with women's hockey being removed from the Olympics because it isn't competitive enough.
sounds about right. Canada & USA get a guaranteed medal in women's hockey every year and nobody really watches it. Sad thing is women's hockey in Canada is growing a ton so other countries outside of NA has too much catching up to do.
