Actually it might stifle the growth of the sport if they have hitting. Canada and the US have a ton of history, experience and strength in the game right now, if you let those players, who are used to playing physical hockey growing up, play the 2nd and 3rd tier teams, they will run them out of the rink and things will probably get more silly and one-sided then they are now.

The Japanese team probably forfits if Canada can physically pound them into submission.
