If they ever build that second rink in Markham then Toronto would be an excellent location. Split the games between there and Hamilton.

Why would an "exhibition series" suddenly have meaning if played every four years?

Canada gave up their right to bid until 2022 because of their deal to host the Juniors every other year.

But if they did, I see no reason why it wouldn't be successful. Canada is hockey mad and not every city has an NHL team. (And not all the NHL teams are still playing anyway) That's why 2008 was successful.

Vancouver/Victoria would be cool.

Wonder what the contingency plan is if the Giants (or the likes of Victoria/Saskatoon/Regina) were to be in the WHL final? Usually the CHL league finals start the same week as the World Championships.

What about splitting it between Copps and the Hershey Centre?

Personally With a bit of work and a format change spreading out the groups into groups of 4 in four playing in different arenas its doable. they could be well received.
It already happened few years ago in Quebec City....
And could go back there when the new arena is finished in a couple of years.
