I don't think it turned out to be as big of a failure as I thought it was going to be. The hockey was certainly entertaining and more people seemed to watch it than I thought would (mind you, it could just be that most of my friends are huge hockey fans). Outside of the games featuring just Euro teams, the attendance was pretty decent too. I think the only real big downside of the tournament was that some of what they were trying to accomplish was to market it to some non-hockey fans and to the States and I think they failed there, but other than that I'd say it was good. Now if this turns into something that they have every 4 years and spread around the world (or at least Canada and maybe some northern American markets), I think it could be something. For now, it still won't be taken seriously by many.
