I may not agree with it, but it is definitely within the realm of possibility.
I have both Finland and Canada winning their groups and earning the bye into the SF ... Sweden v Russia QF #1 and Czech Rep v USA in QF # 2

of course all predicated on the lockout persisting for a few more weeks or NHL teams leaving the jr. team untouched.. but of course things may change once final rosters are set.
