Or, "We'll make our own Olympics! With gimmick teams and hookers! In fact, forget the Olympics!"

The question is: Do we, the collective flameshockey.ca hivemind, give a flying fuck?

I'm actually feeling extremely apathetic about the World Cup. I'll watch it and I'll be mad if team Canada doesn't win it but I'm not looking forward to it like I do most hockey tournaments. I get more excited about the Spengler Cup. :P And speaking of the Olympics, I'd rather watch NHL players play there than the World Cup.

I'll probably watch it, because hockey. I will care more about the Flames development camp.

For me, this concept has lost all meaning with NHL players in the Olympics. Also because it isn't really a "world" cup anymore.

Backlund is on Team Sweden now.

I probably won't watch unless there's absolutely nothing else on TV. And since it's late September there will be baseball on, so that's me settled.

I get that the timezone problem for Pyongyang is going to mean terrible ratings for the Winter games, but it just feels wrong to try and replace the Olympics with this sham event. I'd like to see a Canada/YoungStars final won by the YoungStars just to see the reaction.

I want to see a young stars vs. "good players from shitty countries" team final.

Or maybe he just didn't want to gear up for what is supposed to be playoff-intensity hockey in September.

So, Gaudreau had himself a decent tournament. [smilie=umm.gif] I'm sad that NA got eliminated in the round robin because I kind of wanted to see them play. Sounds like their game vs Sweden was awesome.
