It's based on the ranking from former WC and Olympics. The best 9 teams are pre-qualified, so since Denmark is 12'th on the ranking we have to go through qualification.

Denmark will play at home in february with a group consisting of Belarus, Slovenia and Ukraine, where the winner will go to Sochi.

Without the NHL players available I would say Belarus will be the favourite, with NHL players it should be marginally Denmark, but the pressure will be huge on home ice.
