  1. Why does 4-2 Sweden get to play 3-3 Czech Republic while 6-0 Finland and 5-1 Russia have to play each other? Shouldn't teams who win their games get an advantage by re-seeding?

    Group games only determine quarterfinal draw. Each half of the playoff draw has a team that ended 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

    But that would only make sense... This is the IIHF you know.

    And pretty much every other system with a playoff.
     
  5. I know that, I'm saying Finland should've got the team in the opposite group, with Russia getting the other if they are doing it this why. I want to see the two best teams in the gold medal game..

    Win = two points, loss = 1 point. Equal Points: direct comparison counts.

    In 2010, a win will be 3 Points, Ties will be broken by a shootout and give 2 and 1 Points, loss gives 0 Points.

    And you will.

    Perhaps you want to replace Sweden with Slovakia in the final. After all they have the better record.

    Why does Detriot and Colorado play in the Western Conference Championships but Toronto and Carolina play in the East (as in 2002)? - it is the way it is bracketed.

    A1/B4 winner vs B2/A3 winner
    and
    B1/A4 winner vs A2/B3 winner.
