So if this was used last year it would probably look like this (not 100% sure about how playoff seeds would work, but can guess based off of WC)
QF2: Finland-Czech Republic
Personally, I like this format. 8 teams in the playoffs means that all the big 7 teams make the playoffs. It also give the 2nd tier countries a playoff spot to fight over. More playoff games also means more chance of upsets. The only thing I would consider changing is maybe expanding to 12 or 14 teams.
I also like this format. I'm not sure about expanding though, some games get ugly enough as it is.
