Just look at USA Hockey's actions regarding Jiri Hudler's transfer. They didn't even bother presenting evidence to the IIHF as to why they wouldn't sign his transfer card....they just refused to sign.
Yea, I'm sure the NHL had no influence over that.

BTW, when will Canada Hockey oppose NHL's stance on future Olympic participation?
What evidence do you have that Hockey Canada opposes the NHL's position? Most Canadians only care about best on best, the venue is secondary.

You mean the money they make selling Team Canada jerseys to Canadian fans? If you call that helping Canada then we have a different meaning of what helping is. THe only reason the IIHF is interested in holding WJC tournaments in Canada is so they can take all the money they make off Canadians and spread it around to their European clubs.

Oh please

You're constantly complaining that IIHF is a biased organization because it never holds the world championships in Canada........and when it always holds a tournament in Canada (WJC) it's because they're greedy for Canada's money.

I guess whatever IIHF does, Canada will always be the victim right?
