          And from what I heard, it came down to Pittsburgh and Buffalo, and the one thing that tipped the scale was when Buffalo offered up the Bills stadium for the USA-Canada game. It's helpful when the same guy owns the Sabres and Bills who also helped with the bidding process...



          The problem is, the tournament in the U.S. has never done well if it's not near the Canadian border. I attended the last time it was in Buffalo, and by far the majority of fans for every game, especially the USA-Canada game, were Canadians. They are the only country that really cares about this tournament outside of the respective nations' diehards. There is a reason why the IIHF promises Canada gets to host the tournament every other year -- because the IIHF makes a ton of money every time it's in Canada.

          When the tournament was in North Dakota, they had more fans come down from Winnipeg than locals attending. It did very poorly in Minnesota and Boston.

            Minnesota was 1982, with games in Duluth, Grand Rapids, Virginia, Bloomington, International Falls, St. Cloud, Burnsville, New Ulm, Mankato, Rochester and Minneapolis. Kinda hard to compare that to what this tournament is now...there are a ton of college hockey fans in Minnesota and MSP. Most of them follow a team that has players playing in the tournament, whether its one of the many wild prospects, or a current college player for UND, SCSU, UW, Minnesota, etc.

            To say it did "very poorly in Minnesota" is not at all fair.

              I havent looked hard but it looks like most of the games were played in High School rinks throughout the state...certainly not apples to apples to what the tournament is now.

                Anchorage actually hosted back in 1989, around the time of our bid for the 1994 Olympics. Did fairly well but it's a vastly different tournament now.

                          Valid point. Over the years, the tournament and it's exposure has certainly changed.

                                Well that's a tough one to take after getting the penalty shot stoned and then giving up a breakaway goal to tie it.
