Power Rankings

http://www.iihf.com/channels10/iihf-...r-ranking.html

The IIHF websites power rankings for the tournament.

I always find them entertaining and some what accurate. They are up to date after the first round of games and seem to be relatively good so far. I only object to Finland being below Latvia and perhaps Denmark being too high. Any thoughts?

Hopefully everyone else enjoys them

There's a new sheriff in town, and his name is Damien Brunner

12.LATVIA
Thank you for not throwing your shoes and cell phones

13.FRANCE
Nice try, but Les Bleus are still Allez-ing the wrong way

At least Konstantin Shafranov has two assists, giving hope to other 41-year-old men everywhere
Belarus one has me cracking up, I love me some Glen and Bono.

Czech one´s really spot on.

Don´t understant why they have KAZ on the last spot though.

The fans threw coins on the ice when Canada played Latvia in Latvia a few years ago. I think it is in reference to that.

They were not happy with the refs.

I feel like Germany's is actually an insult and not in good humour like the rest.

Still don´t understand why they always have KAZ last, do they base this just on the results? Maybe they should take a look at the way the teams play sometimes....
