I think that facing RUS in the QF/SF is the best option for every team in this group after the preliminary round games are over, since the other options are CAN or USA. Yes, the russians won a tight game today vs the US, but I still think that RUS would choke in a QF match vs FIN, SWE or CZE (or even SWI actually)...

Both preliminary groups' final standings are really impossible to predict at this stage, but in case e.g. CZE wins Group A and FIN is 3rd, and RUS is 2nd in Group B, facing the russians in the QF and then the czechs in the semifinals would be a pretty good scenario for the Finns, don't you think?
