I think the correct answer, and the one the IIHF would be looking for, is the number of kids enrolled in a hockey school, not simply those registered for competitive hockey with the RHF
If the IIHF asked this, they would have asked the same about seniors. That Russia reported only 2,606 adult players (a lesser number than Australia) proves the IIHF did not ask as such.
Likewise, did IIHF ask Hockey Canada
"we want an in depth report of juniors, but only report adults playing professionally."?
The notion is beyond ridiculous and proves your argument throws common sense out the window.
Russia's numbers are extremely underreported....even if it's only the U10 kids not being counted.
