International Tournaments Discuss international tournaments such as the World Juniors, Olympic hockey, and Ice Hockey World Championships, as they take place; or discuss past tournaments.

So if NHL players aren't going to the Olympics who's playing for Canada and the US?

That's silly.

There's no requirement that international hockey has to be someone's thing. Some people only watch juniors. Some only watch college. People can enjoy whatever they want. I'll watch because team USA is my team but I don't think the Olympics has any higher calling other than that.

Why not just play the 2017-18 World Junior Tournament at the Olympics ?

Best young players. Lots of energy. Real "amateurs", like in the old time.

They are probably going to be one of the worst teams in the tournament
