The Canada Cup was "retired" in the early 1990s, replaced with the inaugural NHL-organized World Cup of Hockey in 1996.
I don't imagine there is one hockey fan out there that is clamoring for the NHL to get out of the World Cup of Hockey.
Only a handful of non-NHL players have been invited to play in this tournament. Someone needs to put these guys in check before they hurt star players (notice I don't say "fellow star players").

You've got your barbecue fired up, and you've called everyone you know to come over.
