I pretty much agree with every analyst who says there won't be pros in 2018. I'm not sure how I feel about it. If they have a best on best tournament every 4 years, (i.e. The World Cup of Hockey) then it will make it easier on everyone, but at the same time I don't think it will be taken as seriously as the Olympics are. Maybe they will just start picking and choosing which Olympics they go to, but I don't think South Korea will miss NHLers.

If there was a WCH in 2016 then everything would line up for a best on best tournament every 4 years for every sport.

2016 - World Cup of Hockey
2017 - World Baseball Classic
2018 - World Cup (soccer)
2019 - World Cup of Basketball (which is already confirmed)
