I've always seen the Spengler Cup tournament as a bit of a 'quirky' cousin to the more polished and intense World Junior Hockey Championship.
The feel of the Spengler is kind of like, in front of a larger crowd, like a house league tournament between those you'd see in your basement when watching sports.
The World Juniors though....that's where the tension is amped WAY up. Kind of how ESPN, NBC, CBS, and FOX amp up the NFL leading up to the Super Bowl.
Would I be a bit right on some of that, guys?
