Nothing ridiculous about this outcome, Ukrainian hockey has been slowly creeping towards these results for 20 years. Though it will be a "huge obstacle" only if Ukraine really manages to get themselves relegated, because getting promoted next year will be even bigger ask. Not to mention bad rep this tournament will attach to Ukrainian hockey. There's nothing going on in Ukrainian hockey that could capture the imagination of Ukrainian kids lately. Football and basketball championships will only push hockey even closer to oblivion in coming years.
