It's got to be either Canada, Russia or the US if not Slovakia.

No way! Even if Canada, Russia or USA end up in relegation group they won't lose to Latvia, Germany and Switzerland.

I also don't see Slovakia getting relegated. I thought when you said "I don't see SLovakia going down" that you meant to the relegation group since the OP asked who people thought would be in the relegation group.

Considering that the 1993 age group of Slovak players did actually go down a division at the U18s two years ago, it is hardly unimaginable that it would happen again. It seems unlikely if they continue to play at the level they played against Russia yesterday, but the question is- can they and will they?

Germany and Latvia would have to get pretty lucky to knock out Slovakia.

i was very impressed in their game against the russians, almost hoping for an underdog upset, i think they would have had a good shot with canada had they not been so close to russia, i think canada will take them very seriously now.

I hope Germnay doesn't go down. I liked the heart they played with yesterday and they might have even made the scoreboard look respectable if they played their best goalie. Also I hate this one year up, one year down thing that they are doing, I want them to have a chance to build something in the top group. I know Latvia is probably in the same situation but they aren't in Canada's group so I haven't seen them and therefore don't like them as much.

Seems like the right group of teams that will hit the relegation round, but I don't think Germany will be the team to get sent down this year. I suspect Latvia will be.

When it comes to the relegation group Germany and Latvia are all but guaranteed. Unless the Russians lose to Germans as well as the USA and Canada.

I can see the Czechs being in that bunch If they take the Swiss too lightly.

Germany going down. Latvia has really disappointed me, the team is not even as bad as results suggest, the coaching is the biggest problem for them.

^Gonna change that to Slovakia beats Canada, Canada beats Russia, USA beats Russia

Maybe Canada will go down to the relegation pool, I don't know, would TSN cover Canada's relegation pool games?

It'll be one of Slovakia or Russia in the relegation group. I think that's given.
