LOL even when they are in the US they are close to the border so the stands will be 3/4 full of Canadians.

exactly. Buffalo will be home ice for Canada as well because Americans don't care about junior hockey, just like North Dakota was pretty much a mini-Winnipeg

the WJC is a joke for this reason, just because the IIHF wants to make as much money off tickets as possible

Huh? I was speaking about Americans in general, not myself. If the WJC was in my town, I would surely go. But I doubt it'll ever come here, since I live too far from the Canadian border. And like I said, the IIHF only cares about money

Sorry that I misintrepeted when you said "that Americans don't care about about it" and you thought it was "WJHC was a joke"!

How silly of me!

Well obviously I don't speak for all Americans, but you only have to look at the WJC's in Boston and North Dakota to see the lack of interest from American fans in general.

And I said the WJC was a joke because of the fact that it is almost always played on home ice for one team. It's still a fun tournament, but this takes away some of it's credibility.

I enjoy the WJC, but I don't take it too seriously for this reason. And I'm not the only one.
