Should the NHL get rid of the World Cup?

Is there really a need for the World Cup of hockey at this point? With the Olympics,World Championships is a third one needed?

    Truthfully I think it would be fiscally stupid to get rid of the World Cup. It's a good idea. The World Championships occur right at the end of the NHL season whereas the World Cup is scheduled for after the end of the season so that you will be able to have any and all NHL players you could hope to have playing in a tournament. It also will allow people all across North America to see top foreign talent without all of the entrapments of the IOC.

    There's only an Olympics every four years, and there's talk about The NHL not participating in that next time.

    no way man the world cup is sweet, it gives a good chance for some guys that would usually never get to represent their country to compete internationally.
