You might be right fancy, but I think this is one of the only tournaments that really matters. Sure alot of these kids have already been drafted by NHL teams and will rake in their millions in due time, but there's still a sense of innocence about them and they truly are playing for pride and for their countries.

Junior level hockey >>> professional hockey any day.
