Maybe they should go back to calling it the Canada Cup. Didn't they play all of their games at home?? :-?

I'm not sure how they decided on the first game, but weren't home arenas based on record? So Canada kept getting home-ice advantage because they had the better record? Not positive but that's how I think it works.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Well considering that Canada has the best hockey fans in the world, it's fair enough that we had a lot of the games here. We beat you guys pretty handily in SLC, so I don't know that home ice advantage plays that big a role :-b

But seriously, I don't know why all the games were played in Canada. Maybe because they knew they could easily sell-out here, I dunno.

EDIT: According to the last 2 posters, it was because they had the best record. I didn't know that, but I guess it makes sense.

in the round robin part, the european dividion played them in europe. there were also games played in the us. canada ended up all in canada, but i'm not sure it was record that decided it.

in the final, canada got home ice (last change) advantage by winning a coin toss.
