So, how many NA-born players will Chinese NT feature in Beijing Olympics in 2022? They have entered a team in KHL for next season, which, judging by the tactics of Kazakhstan and Belarus, includes contracting decent NA players to long-term deals so that they could acquire Chinese nationality in time for the Olympics. Sounds more than realistic for me. Should or shouldn't IIHF work on tougher regulation for naturalisation of players? Obviously, it isn't a matter that concerns the Top 6 nations much, but from the perspective of the following 6 nations this has always seemed more than desperate and in fact crippling for international hockey.
