Went with A C B as well. C basically looks like a marginally weaker version of A though, so I can see why one might consider C. The Swiss are well on their way up and by 2014 they might have a team that is arguably as strong as the Slovaks. Latvia has had more Olympic experience than the Slovenians but is lacking a current bonafide superstar (Kopitar), and it's hard to say which duo of USA/RUS or CZE/SWE is stronger or weaker.
B is most clearly the weakest group. Finland and Canada should comfortably steamroll their opponents, unless Thomas Vanek continues to score 2-4 points per game every single game into next season and pots 3 goals in every game at the Olympics. And Grabner, Nodl and Pock suddenly become NHL superstars.
