As if USA hockey or Hockey Canada would drop out of Worlds...
I agree it is unlikely, but not impossible. Let's face it, the IIHF needs Canada and the US a lot more than they need the IIHF. I heard Bob Nicholson interviewed on a local radio station last year and he said that one of his concerns was that having a World Championship every year was too often. Also if you check your hockey history you will see that Canada did withdraw from the WC for an extended period. You can find the details on wiki if you want to learn more.
