They don't plan on naturalizing any more players though, mostly because there isn't enough time to do so before the Olympics - nor enough interest from players who are skilled enough to make the team.
And you'll see the investment and interest in hockey in South Korea plummet after the Olympics, they are bolstering their squad now so they wont get absolutely ****ed over against the other nations at the games.

The World's were so popular in Canada - and that's why you'll never see it here again.

The NHL/Hockey Canada is trying to get rid of the NHLers in the Olympics and WC's, so they can bring in the Canada Cup, again.

Is that why NHL players will most likely play in Sochi?

(Of course that's not official yet, but close according to reports and comments: mainly technical details to solve for now...)

That completely goes against Hockey Canada's interests. Hockey Canada didn't get anything from the Canada/World Cup. It was an NHL event.

They however would make good money off of hosting the World Championships, and they most definitely want their best players in the Olympics.

As has been stated many times in this thread, Canada doesn't bid on the World Championships because they made an agreement not to do so with the IIHF which gave them the U20's every other year in return.

Be nice for it to come back to Canada, Saskatoon or Halifax seem to be the cities best capable of hosting it.

That was an easy agreement to make because there is no demand for the World Championships here.

They'll come back to Canada at some point soon. I would not be surprised if they never came back to the U.S.
