It's insulting to who? The countries? Ask players like Kopitar, Gaborik - I bet they'd tell you they would rather have this all star team that way they have a chance to one actually be in the tournament, and two - not get murdered. If there's a Latvian (Grgensons) on the World Team and they go and actually win this thing - you don't think Latvians wouldn't be glued to their tv sets to cheer their own guy? I think the hockey fans in those countries would be elated to cheer a team that has a chance to win.
Do you thinks US soccer players would prefer to be on a team together with Mexicans and central Americans to have a bigger chance of winning the world cup?
