    ...WJC is still kid's tournament and majority of those kids won't even make WC teams when they become real players.

    WJC and WJCU18 are junior tournaments, so you can't compare them

    WJC is pretty much a Canadian circle jerk. The tournament is much more about the individual prospects than anything else for me. Way too lopsided right now.

    U18 is hardly televised so that doesn't even count.

    I feel exactly the same. Olympics first, then WHC, the rest I really don't care.

    Oh, and I didn't count the World Cup/Canada Cup because it hasn't been held for a while.

    To me:

    Olympics
    World Championships

    NHL Playoffs



    World Cup
    EHT
    WJC

    Somewhere below recreational hockey is where I'd put U-18. Not interested at all.

    I guess I'd care more about the juniors if Germany
    did good there.

    I'm too young to really remember the World Cup
    and I would not particularly care about a cup that only makes money for the NHL.

    I don't think that the NHL playoffs are an International Tournament. ;)

    I've watched Team Finland WJC games quite often just to see how they play. Outcome is irrelevant.

    And then I don't really care. I think I'd rather watch Euro Hockey Tour game if there are some interesting players for me than WJC
