    And the teams are:

    Group C
    Czech
    Canada
    Sweden
    Germany (winner of preliminary group A)

    Group D
    Russia
    Finland
    USA
    Belarus (winner of preliminary group B)

    Every team will advance to play-offs, pairings are:

    D1 vs. C4
    C2 vs. D3
    Winners will face with each other in semi-finals

    C1 vs. D4
    D2 vs. C3
    Winners will face with each other in semi-finals

    So, it's possible to win gold by winning only the three play-off games...the first three games in groups C & D are purposeless

    The Czechs will surely win, but my vote goes to... SuomiFinlandPerkele!!

    yeah, germany's doing awesome.
    1) canada
    2) russia
    3) czech republic
    4) USA

    i think the czech republic is better than russia myself, but it's just that the pools work out that way.

    Man, a lot of talent on all these teams.

    I think the teams with the advantage are the teams with less NHL players. If you think of time playing together, and rest. I just think it could be a factor at this level of play.

    I am enjoying the action so far, and cant wait for the coming days. Should be some great action.

    Sit back, relax, and enjoy. This should be real fun for Hockey fans Worldwide !! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Look at the times of the games for the US team.

    The games are in our country and the US plays at 10:45 pm and 11:30 pm!

    Does anyone have a theory? Who's the brain surgeon who cooked up this schedule?

    February 15
    Russia vs. Belarus 1:00 p.m.
    Canada Vs. Sweden 6:00 p.m.
    Czech Republic Vs. Germany 9:00 p.m.
    Finland Vs. United States 10:45 p.m.

    February 16
    Sport/Event Time (ET)
    Finland vs. Belarus 6:45 p.m.
    United States Vs. Russia 11:30 p.m.

    February 17
    Sport/Event Time (ET)
    Sweden vs. Czech Republic 6:00 p.m.
    Canada Vs. Germany 9:00 p.m.

    I see the Czech team taking it but watch out for USA or Canada. If either of the two can gel they'll do some major damage.

    he already fucked over slovakia. i think by keeping players from playing in the games, for example, latvia and slovakia. sure, latvia didn't have a chance in hell, but slovakia is a powerhouse. and every little bit helps. the schedule of the nhl wasn't exactly so hot either, having the all star break when it was, and then having them play games right up until yesterday. i think they wouldn't be playing their full potential. i think he was trying to fuck over the european teams.

    although, when you think about it, the international game is european, so maybe it'll help the north american side. just everything that bettman does, leaves a bad taste in my mouth, because he's trying to make himself rich instead of looking out for what's best for the players. since he's an american himself, it makes sense to me that he would try to shift the odds to his favour, given the stupid shit he's done in the past. nothing against USA hockey, just against gary bettman.

    that's better laner

    the olympic hockey is fucked up anyway. why should some teams qualify for the first round bye and others have to play for the qualiufying round that's bullshit. it should all be done together imo.

    yeah, something's fucked up with that.

    and womens hockey is even worse. the only two decent teams are canada and the USA, and the rest are being blown out.

    That's right, and isn't it true that Canada has won every single World Championship so far and USA won the first Olympic gold in Nagano '98.

    ´They're the 2 best teams, and far behind comes Finland, if I remember correctly Finland has been third in every single World Championships, but has never won either one of them big teams.

    This clearly is not the most exciting sports event...
