    Why is IIHF world championships not such a bid deal in the USA as NHL?

    To me personally international events have always been of much more interest than just national ones.

    I can honestly say that, that is not true in Canada. Why T.S.N. and Sportsnet,  2 of the biggest sports channels on cable (here) are carrying every game of this tournament and have for the last 4 tourneys consecutively. IN the USA money making and power seems to preside over entertainment and the NHL on a bad night can please more Americans with a "bad" hockey game nationally, than an IIHF event game will internationally, UNLESS the USA is playing in it themselves, then ESPN puts it on late at night. The pros always get top billing, the little guy suffers.
