Russia made a deal with Denmark. They would retract their bid for 2016 and in return Russia would support's Denmark's bid for the following year.

Denmark will get the 2017 games. Mark my words.

Hopefully you're right. It's nice that smaller hockey countries get to host the WHC too. Waiting for Hungary to also host, maybe it will happen someday?

And Ukraine in 2018. That's what Finnish hockey federation boss Kalervo Kummola said on Finnish tv.

Nothing wrong with Russia but this would've been Denmarks turn.
