    I stuck and renamed the thread for better visibility.

    Denmark must avoid the relegation round for the third time if they wish to make the third seed and face weaker opponents in future. Now they were lucky, Ukraine is easily the weakest third seed team.

    good idea !!
    :yo: :yo:

    again to our group. when i saw that group, i had a deja vu for the last WC in austria in 1996. when we had to go down to the B-Group. :mad:

    i hope that i have the wrong feeling, but the teams are so strong. and do you imagine how strong they are if their is a lock out... :eek: no chance for austria...

    Too bad for Austria having a hard group, it would of looked good by the host team to make it to the semi-finals, but it seems difficult now.

    Ya, Slovenia are in ( I don't know if it's their first time or not), but they will probably come out in last in their group because they're with Canada, The USA, and Latvia!!! :shakehead :shakehead They have no chance against those teams!

    It's good to see that Belarus made it, they were my second fave team in the Olympics (behing Canada)....Maybe I'll be able to see Andrei Mezin play again!!!
