Change in World Cup Format

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).

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

From what little I remember of the '96 WC, it was earlier in the summer - I think.
The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03
