Was just coming here to post this.
I honestly think that with the 8-team QF set-up, you're MUCH better to play the stronger group. There's no point in playing 3 easy-ish RR games and 1 difficult game, to end up first and be playing a strong 4th place team.
Challenge yourself for 2 or 3 tough games, play your easy 1 or 2 games and then go into the QF, possibly against a bit lesser opponent.
At this point, group B looks more difficult to me, although with graduations, I can't say I know enough about these teams for next year. Just general opinion would be that normally Fin>Cze, SWI>SVK, NOR<=GER
Also, group B would mean we win Bronze, so that's what I'm hoping for.
