Two hosts is really useless. I didn't like this idea in football and it isn't any better in hockey. If rather small countries like Austria or Latvia can do a good job hosting such a tournament, there isn't a reason why two countries should host.

As for the shared German/French application for the 2017 tournament, I can understand why it's done but I don't really like it. As far as I know, Germany planned to apply for a tournament around that time and France was interested in hosting a tournament as well. Thinking that they wouldn't get the tournament on their own against the likely competition, France looked for someone to co-host the tournament, and who would be a more obvious choice than the direct neighbour who was also interested in staging the tournament?
