4th group A - 1st group B
2nd group A - 3rd group B
3rd group A - 2nd group B

Is that correct?
Yes, you play seven games in the first round and the first four advance to the quarterfinals.

Sadly, at least for the next two tournaments, the quarterfinals will be held in the groups, not crossing over. So 1A plays 4A and so on. It's supposed to prevent teams from travelling more than necessary.

I hope they will change that for 2014, when it's back to only one host again.

Will there be more boats cruising to Sweden and cheap flights between Helsinki and Stockholm, because the trains or busses wont be an option as they usually are between the two cities of World Championships.

Group A is pretty tough, but it's good for the sport as either Germany or Norway advances to the game of death again.

Also he has played in six olympics, and it stands as a World record. He has ten medals in World Championship and Olympics. One of them is gold, six silver. More than from hes achievements however, he is known from hes "gretzky-like" ability to see the game and make clever and great passes. He is specially known from "Raipen lätty" (Raipe's saucer passes).

After that game they freezed hes jersey and had other ceremonies, including that whats happening in my avatar. In Finland, Helminen will forevere be one of the greatest ever to play hockey.
That's a great story. Thanks for sharing. It's always cool to learn some hockey history from other countries. Have fun hosting, I know your fans will do Finland proud (same goes for Sweden).
