The first round for the top countries are more or less exhibition games and giving them the same weight as the gold medal game is like saying a preseason game is equal to game 7 of the SC finals.

I figure the only way to give meaning to these results is by having a formula based on how far each country went in the Olympic playoffs.

For example if you awarded 8 points for winning the gold, 4 pts for reaching the final, 2pts for reaching the semi's and 1 pt for making the QF's the rankings since '98 would be as follows:

CAN 19
CZE 12
SWE 11
USA 10
FIN 9
RUS 9
SVK 3
BLR 3
SUI 2
GER 1
KAZ 1
