It's business plain and simple, the WJC (at least when hosted in Canada or the US) brings in a lot of tourist dollars. If the shoe was on the other foot (i.e. an Ottawa anniversary year) I would fully expect the Canadiens/Montréal to bid on hosting the event.

Wow that sucks.

Montreal was ready to go all out, lining up big names to help coordinate, plan, and organize the event... It was to be part of our huge 100th anniversary... And we don't get it. Sucks dudes.

On the bright side, Ottawa is closer to home, hence easier to travel to. Harder to get tickets for games I bet, though, and more expensive to stay in.

I'm not too upset; this would have been the 4th time in a row Ottawa lost it, and they've been trying forever now...

The Draft and All-Star game, I care a lot more for.

This sucks.

Although I knew it wouldn't happen, I was still holding out hope for Saskatoon. It's too bad that the cities like S'toon, Red Deer and Halifax will never see this tournament again because of money.

IMO cities like this is where the tournament thrives and is truly a great experience. These are junior hockey towns, and that's where it should be played. Not in NHL cities looking to make more money.

I feel your pain. Selfishly I would have liked the tournament to come to Montreal so I would get to see some games, but it is excellent seeing it played in places like Red Deer, Winnipeg etc.

I'm pretty sure that Ottawa has one of the most successful junior sports teams in the world in the 67's, in terms of winning and attendance.

True.

I'm not picking on Ottawa specifically, and they're probably an exception to the rule. It's just that it's now clear what direction Hockey Canada is heading in. NHL owners with big arenas and deep pockets are calling the shots. I'm sure we'll see Toronto, Montreal , Calgary, etc get the next few tourney with large $$$ backing.

In the smaller cities, these applications are made by grassroots volunteers. They do it because they love their city and love hockey. I hope I'm wrong, but it looks like those days are over.

At least they finally won something.

It's not like if their arrogant fans were going to win the Cup anytime soon.


Just a shot at OttSens, don't take it for you the other Sens fans.

Ottawa deserves it, great junior program... But as a hockey fan in Quebec and close to Montreal, this just sucks.

I heard on CKAC that the fact that Ottawa had a better implication of their minor hockey league than the Montreal squad helped them a lot. The guy from Hockey Canada made a stupid comment though when he was asked by Villeneuve if the fact that it was the 100th anniversary, if it was a factor in their decision. The guy said sure we took it in consideration but most of the other cities had other ''activities'' as well.....As if the 100th anniversary is equivalent to any other activity....

And it seems that the dollar figures, the probable attendance and all played for Ottawa as well, so like a poster said, it's strictly or mostly business.

You seem to forget that Montreal is not known as being a junior hockey town.

Look on the bright side, its only 2 hours away!
