My point here has always been that if the World Cup is to someday be an international event of some importance, then countries such as Switzerland, Denmark or Germany, which have seen incredible growth in the game since the 1990's should be allowed to participate as full-fledged nations.

To me this tournament is nothing more than the North American version of what the World Hockey Championships have always been: a tournament that keeps the old artificial divides of European vs. North American hockey alive by excluding great players from worthwhile hockey nations for purely political reasons.

Hey, it's been mostly great hockey so far, no doubt about it. But in the long run, future World Cups will have to capture some kind of worldwide audience. The sad truth is that this simply won't happen when merely six nations are participating.

Nine shots after two for the Euros vs thirty for the Gordon Lightfeet. I can't criticise as I have zero shots against and am afraid of animals in pairs and divorced women.

Go to the University of Delaware then drive 10 minutes north. Call me when you get to the Exxon. A French Canadian accent will get you laid in about 15 minutes here.

I still think the World Cup of hockey should be a 24 nation invitational tournament where only the top 8 teams advance to a best-of-3 playoff round.

Also, the exhibition round for such a tournament probably shouldn't last 2 fucking weeks. This "practice period", so to speak, is just as easily accomplished when the best hockey nations in the world get to have round robin matches against second & third rate hockey nations.

Worst thing about this tournament: no quarterfinals. I don't like how they just eliminate all but four teams after a short round robin.
