I think it's time for the IIHF to take a good look at its member nations and consider re-considering some countries' memberships. Here is the complete list: Andorra Argentina Armenia Australia Austria Azerbaijan Belarus Belgium Bosnia & Herzegovina Brazil Bulgaria Canada Chile China Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) Croatia Czech Republic Denmark DPR Korea Estonia Finland France Germany Great Britain Greece Hong Kong Hungary Iceland India Ireland Israel Italy Japan Kazakhstan Korea Latvia Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macedonia Mexico Mongolia Namibia Netherlands New Zealand Norway Poland Portugal Romania Russia Serbia & Montenegro Singapore Slovakia Slovenia South Africa Spain Sweden Switzerland Thailand Turkey Ukraine United Arab Emirates United States of America All the nations I labelled in bold are those that I cannot recall registering a national team for any Division III World Championship in years, if ever. I think the IIHF should give these nations a certain amount of time (say 3-5 years) to field even a U18 team for Division III competition. If not, you're out of the IIHF. Discuss.
