Germany
Latvia
Slovakia

Germany going down if you ask me.

It's got to be either Canada, Russia or the US if not Slovakia.

The thread topic is about who will be in the relegation group.

No way! Even if Canada, Russia or USA end up in relegation group they won't lose to Latvia, Germany and Switzerland.

unless something crazy happens it will be as the first poster stated

slovakia, germany, switzerland, latvia will be in the relegation round

i was just stating i couldnt imagine slovakia being sent down a division, as he implied he thought germany was going down.

I also don't see Slovakia getting relegated. I thought when you said "I don't see SLovakia going down" that you meant to the relegation group since the OP asked who people thought would be in the relegation group.

Canada4Gold 12-27-2012 10:50 AM

Russia
Czech Republic
Germany
Latvia

Latvia goes down

Considering that the 1993 age group of Slovak players did actually go down a division at the U18s two years ago, it is hardly unimaginable that it would happen again. It seems unlikely if they continue to play at the level they played against Russia yesterday, but the question is- can they and will they?

Germany and Latvia would have to get pretty lucky to knock out Slovakia.

i was very impressed in their game against the russians, almost hoping for an underdog upset, i think they would have had a good shot with canada had they not been so close to russia, i think canada will take them very seriously now.

BalticWarrior 12-27-2012 11:22 AM

Seeing how we got humilited by swiss ffs,i say us,Latvia will be relegated.

Prairie Habs 12-27-2012 01:26 PM

I hope Germnay doesn't go down. I liked the heart they played with yesterday and they might have even made the scoreboard look respectable if they played their best goalie. Also I hate this one year up, one year down thing that they are doing, I want them to have a chance to build something in the top group. I know Latvia is probably in the same situation but they aren't in Canada's group so I haven't seen them and therefore don't like them as much. :laugh:

Dr Awesome 12-27-2012 01:47 PM

With no reasoning i'm gonna say the swiss get sent down.

Seems like the right group of teams that will hit the relegation round, but I don't think Germany will be the team to get sent down this year. I suspect Latvia will be.

SpeedDemon 12-27-2012 08:46 PM

When it comes to the relegation group Germany and Latvia are all but guaranteed. Unless the Russians lose to Germans as well as the USA and Canada.

I can see the Czechs being in that bunch If they take the Swiss too lightly.

How will Russia make the relegation group? :laugh:

Slovakia
Czechs
Latvia
Germany

Germany going down. Latvia has really disappointed me, the team is not even as bad as results suggest, the coaching is the biggest problem for them.

Slovakia beats US, USA beats Russia, Canada beats Russia, quite possible :sarcasm:

Canada4Gold 12-28-2012 05:08 AM

^Gonna change that to Slovakia beats Canada, Canada beats Russia, USA beats Russia

Maybe Canada will go down to the relegation pool, I don't know, would TSN cover Canada's relegation pool games? :laugh:

I actually thought of your post when Canada went down 1-3 :laugh:

Shrimper 12-28-2012 08:10 AM

It'll be one of Slovakia or Russia in the relegation group. I think that's given.
