This is all hypothetical but the way I see it is, whoever wins between Canada and Finland in 2014 will potentially have a matchup in the quarters against one of(norway,belarus,swiss,germany,latvia...etc) meaning IF they move on, the earliest they would face a top 5 team is the semis which at least prepares whichever team for it's biggest test.
