And you think the players of this gimmick teams and fans should care because? There is no national pride, patriotism involved so why should players 1. Be there and 2. Care? Also how can McDavid be prohibited from playing for his own country? Which national anthem will be played? Players want to represent their country even if they are getting blasted by the powerhouses it's still better than playing with fake teams who aren't your country man. It's a joke and a big middle finger to teams like Switzerland, Slovakia..
They care because they're professionals and they are selling themselves and the sport.
