Thats what is necessary to have an international tournament like the WJC. This whole "in NA we know so much better" thing is so stupid, its hard to bear.
sorry if i offended anyone...
You haven't offended anyone. If people don't like the rules of the IIHF they don't have to participate in the tournament. However, once they do decide to they forfeit all rights to complain about the rules as written.
