Change in World Cup Format

4 posts in this topic

The finals for the 96 cup were best of 3. Now they're 1 game elimination.

Why'd they make the change. The best of 3 format is what made the 96 cup so intense.

I can make assumptions, but has anyone read anything explaining the official reason for the change (other than poor marketing of course).

I wish it was still a best of 3.

Speculation: Maybe the NHLPA didn't want the players on the final two teams to play so many games? :(

Because the World Cup is supposed to end right before (cough) training camp (cough)?

From what little I remember of the '96 WC, it was earlier in the summer - I think.
