I honestly can't believe people are complaining about this.

Part of the reason that this tournament holds such fond memories for so many people is watching games at ungodly hours. Stop whining.

Tell me about it. For some reason some of my best memories watching football/soccer, F1 (not that those two are often played at random times for Europeans) and hockey game at night. Stacking up food, drinks and staying up watching the game/tournament.

I can't understand the complaining either. The reason why WJC gets even a little attention outside Canada is that Canada is crazy about it cares about the tournament.

If game times kill the WJC buzz of the WJC-crazy Canadians, how can Canadians expect that people in Europe care to wake up in the middle of the night to watch some kids playing some marginal sport (when the tournament is held in NA)? It's normal in Europe that if you want to watch live NHL, then you have to be awake at the worst possible time of the night (2-5am EET).

In Finland, for example, the tournament is not even shown in free channels but in pay-TV, so the average Joe here likely knows that the tournament is ongoing (from sports news) but likely hasn't seen a single game => likely isn't interested of the tournament.

The games aren't available for free in Canada, either, as they're shown on a sports network. TSN, for the past several years, made the games available live online for free, but this year they're charging it like a PPV event.

I just realised that 3 of 4 Finnish games will start at 9:30 AM.

WTF I'm using alarm clock during holidays!

Russian time zone making it tough...

Starting to really appreciate the north american game times (pst) for the Junior games. Ive tripped over most of the results before the games have even started this year. Between TSN, gabby people and social media it's nearly impossible to watch not allready knowing what happened. Maybe Sweden will be a bit better? Giver boys!

Why would you go on hockey websites if you don't want to know the result?

ye that evil Russian time zone. PST time zone is so much better.

I've gone without tripping over results- don't check any sports related sites and avoid Regular news sites too, shove a sock in your hockey friends mouths, DON'T watch ANY news on TV- they all have sports sections that always cover WJC and obviously avoid twitter and facebook.

How could you "trip" over the game results before the game has even started? That is literally not possible. If you are watching the reruns of the games and haven't avoided hearing the result of the game the only fault lies with you. Quit blaming others for your errors.

Not visiting hockey websites. Its tsn showing live standings etc 60 seconds before a 7am re-broadcast. That sort of thing

I wake up and watch them! Lots of fun, actually. Glad the tourney is in Russia this year and glad it is doing well in terms of attendance (I heard speculation that it would be poor, but the rinks look pretty full most of the time). Russia deserves to host the WJC as much as any other country, mine included.

Yeah the time zone difference does suck. Tomorrow morning watching the semi's is going to be rough. I can't get to sleep early either so i was catching 2-3 hours of sleep before the game and a few hours of sleep after the games. Team Canada has had all early games too with only their game against the Russians not super early. I am in (UTC-04:00) Atlantic Time (Canada) zone so the games have been starting at 5am local time.

Its pretty much impossible to make it through a 9-5 day without having it ruined so you can watch it when you get home.


I dont care enough about this tournament to put so much effort into it but for people who are trying to watch it after work or school its tough and I feel their pain
