Women's Ice Hockey IIHF World Championship 2019

This competition format is a joke. It is nearly impossible to move up from Group B to Group A. The top 5 will surely remain the same for some time.

I wrote the IIHF about this and they basically said it's because the women's teams apparently WISHED for a strong and less strong group. (I'm sure the US and Canada have too much influence).

The good news is the Czechs should leapfrog Sweden and Japan next year. So then they'll be ranked 6th, and I wager that'll be enough for direct Olympics with 10 teams!

(They have to beat Japan, pretty much, by one position, and they've got it)

The problem isn’t the groups. The problem is that there is no ranking round, so there is very little opportunity for group B reams to finish ahead of group A teams, short of beating one of the top 3 teams in group A...

 

This would actually be a really easy fix.
