LPR (Loosely Pens Related) Should the World Cup be this week

Postby Mango Salsa on Thu Jul 19, 2018 1:22 pm

Never understood why the World Cup is held during the NHL playoffs when many of the top players cant go. Seems to me that a slow sports week like this one would be ideal time to do it. The boys are probably getting itchy to play some competitive hockey around now.

You're speaking about the World Championships. I don't think they're meant to be a best on best tournament. It's a much bigger deal in Europe. They prefer something that doesn't happen as often, such as the World Cup or Olympics. I really don't think it's in anybody's best interest to have NHL players forego any kind of offseason.
