The IIHF world ranking does not decide what teams go to the World Championships. It is only used for Olympics qualifying. The World Championships are decided through the tournaments. Look at Hungary; ranked 20th last year, and in the elite division. If a national team can win games, they go to the top level of play. The better they do in the World Championship, the higher they are ranked by the IIHF.
