    They split up Division I and II into 2 groups horizontally. Just like they split up the Elite level into 2 pools. Like this:

    2006 Div I, Group A
    • Germany - 9th rank from previous year (relegated),
    • Kazakhstan - 14th rank,
    • Denmark - 15th rank,
    • France - 18th rank,
    • Ukraine - 19th rank, and
    • Japan - 24th rank (promoted)

    2006 Div I, Group B
    • Belarus - 10th rank from previous year (relegated), ,
    • Slovenia - 13th rank,
    • Austria - 16th rank,
    • Poland - 17th rank,
    • Italy - 20th rank, and
    • Hungary - 23rd rank (promoted)

    Something that has been just brought to my attention: The IIHF does reserve the right (for logistical reasons) to slightly tweak the make-up to make travel easier. To explain this, I'll re-group the rankings this way and use Div II as the example (the numbers in brackets are the previous year's (in this case 2005) rankings):

    Division II
    Group A................................Group B
    Britian (21)..........................Estonia (22)
    Romania (26).......................South Korea (25)
    Netherlands (27)...................Croatia (28)
    Spain (30)............................China (29)
    Australia (31).......................Serbia & Mont. (32)
    New Zealand (36).................Mexico (35)

    These groups can be changed for logistical/hosting reasons. They are what the IIHF aim for, BUT the seeds can't be swapped (i.e. each group's first seed must be in separate groups, as must the 2nd, 3rd, etc.). However, there are reasons why the groups may need to be changed, especially at this lower level:

    1. No one in one of the groups wants to be host. For example, if no one in Group A applies to be host, and 2 teams in Group B make a serious bid, then one the Group B teams can be swapped with it's equivalent in Group A.

    2. Geography. If, New Zealand, for example, decided to host Div II Group A, then the IIHF would be free to decide to swap Korea and China into the same group to reduce the number of European teams having to make a 24 hour flight to get to the games. As an example, South Korea could swap with it's equivalent Romania, and China with Spain. Group A could be Britain, South Korea, The Netherlands, China, Australia, and New Zealand.
