IIHF World Championship[edit]

Please don't make this article a re-direct to 2015 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships, as this article deals only with the championship round of the entire tournament. See previous IIHF World Championship articles. GoodDay (talk) 16:09, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

Canada still can regelate with 10 p.[edit]

I`ve found scenario with Canada relegating. Czech Republic cannot relegate, so IF CAN finish with 10 points in three way tie with Denmark and Italy, it is still possible to relegate from 7th place and 14th place overall. --CZMajkl (talk) 21:03, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

not possible, would have to be a seven way tie, and they cannot be last in that tie because the nations who would have to beat sweden would be behind them in head-to-head points.18abruce (talk) 21:59, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
my apologies I see how it could be possible if CZE finishes last and avoids relegation.18abruce (talk) 22:03, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

latvia can still be relegated with 9 points[edit]

if latvia finishes in 7th with 9 points (which is still possible), and the Czech Republic finsihes in 8th in their group with the 7th place team having 9 points (which is still possible), then Latvia could be 14th and be relegated.18abruce (talk) 18:12, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

I get where you are going with that, but can Pool B have 2 teams regulated? TerminalPreppie (talk) 18:33, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes, the rules state "the overall bottom ranked two teams will be relegated" so if the Czechs are bottom in their group it would be the nation ranked 14th regardless of the group.18abruce (talk) 18:48, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Splitting[edit]

Hey, i'm thiking about splitting the article in group stages and knockout stage and leave "blank" results in here. The article gets long and takes ages to load when some of the games are played and information put in. Like the FIFA world Cup, FIBA world cup... Any input? Maybe i go ahead later on and see what the reaction is. Kante4 (talk) 12:09, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

I think it is a good idea, seems like it makes it easier to update game summaries with less conflicts.18abruce (talk) 23:37, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Ok, will see what i can do. Kante4 (talk) 10:34, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Done. Kante4 (talk) 11:29, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
