Default World hits Canada in 2007?

The CHA is going to throw in a bid for the 2007 World Hockey Championships... I say, it's about time!

The IIHF WHC has never been on Canadian soil. Of course, it may be tough with the NHL playoffs going on at that time, not only with actual fans, but poor television coverage, but hey, TheScore already televises WHC games... I'm sure they'd cooperate and televise prime time games instead of the mid-night or early morning games that we can see when the WHCs are in Europe.

The CHA will choose who will represent Canada by December out of Winnipeg, Quebec City, and Halifax. Winnipeg set the record for attendance during the 1999 World Junior championships and did it by playing games in 4 cities around Manitoba. They would sell out with NHL-class hockey and prove how loyal of hockey fans we are... plus, Halifax is having the Juniors this year, I don't think they deserve 2 major world championships that close together.

Haha -- well, it should be in North America.... I mean, Manitoba or Halifax or Quebec... I don't know what American markets you could put it in that would be gauranteed to not be in the NHL playoff fever at that time... New York, maybe!?
