I think the new IIHF U18 and U20 formats announced today will be more favourable for SVK. I think at least in the sense that it is easier to make the playoff round and more difficult to get relegated.

The 6 team playoff format has been played 10 times. Slovakia has qualified to the playoff round 40 percent of the time. Now with an 8 team playoff, SVK should be in the playoff round most years. In the years they are not, it will be a best of 3 series.
