Why so many? Is this normal? Who gets accepted?

I think that Bosnia and Herzegovina is the only one which wonīt be able to compete at all as they have not had a team in the WCs for a while now.

Hereīs something: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_hoc..._qualification

but it seems like the qualification process for the lowest ranked teams has not been 100% determined yet.

As for it being normal or not, obviously most of those teams donīt stand a chance to make it, but it means they will get some additional games to those that they play in WC. I donīt think that can be bad for them or hockey overall.
