Maybe a combined US/Canadian team? At least in the WC because of the big ice. And a Swiss/German/Italian/Austrian team? Francophone team? Yugoslavia!! Norway and Denmark will be part of the swe...Finnish/Swedish team.
OR, split the US and Canadian team into the states that constitute the countries.
A Norrbotten (google! think midnight sun) team would beat Switzerland because of stubbornness alone.
