to speculate. Without at least some proof, it's not a speculation - it's a guess, a stab in the dark.
Considering it's a IIHF
do you have to speculate that:
1. the FHR reported it's non registered U10 population to the IIHF?
2. non FHR registered players (in schools, rec leagues, etc.) were included in the IIHF survey?
In fact, I don't care about your 'study'. My only issue is that, without first verifying the above, you're purposely underreporting Russia's numbers. The validity of your study is predicated on accurate and equal across the board reporting, is it not?
