After 2010 that is. This whole interrupting the season for weeks in mid-season actually does make the NHL look a bit bush league in my opinion. Add the fact that the games have been pretty crap. Add the fact that no touch icing is really starting to piss me off. Add to that the fact that the ice is too damn big. Add the fact that it makes the NHL season practically stretch into July. And finally add the fact that Olympic hockey has done jack squat for the NHL in America. Remember that was the whole point of having NHL players at the Olympics. It failed. Bring back the Canada Cup... no, not the World Cup, the CANADA Cup. You know, that hockey tournament with actual history behind it. Calling it the "World Cup" did nothing but diminish it's importance. First of all, there is only one "World Cup" and it ain't for hockey. Secondly, let's face it, every other country would love to win the "Canada Cup" in Canada and rub it in our faces rather than win some old lady's glass vase that was the "World Cup". Did you see the players skate around with that joke of a trophy in 2004? They were laughing at the damn thing. The Canada Cup (wich actually wasn't a cup at all) was a damn cool looking trophy. Forget this Olympic stuff and bring back the Canada Cup every four years in September.
