    I am sure that won't be the case. There will be other methods to qualify for qualification tournament (most likely ranking). There will be 6 spots up for grabs in the qualification tournament, so do expect a field of 12-16 teams in the qualification tournament.

    No, it's like this:
     
    5 continental champions + Japan --> to olympics.
     
    top 4 of pro-league (not counting continental champions) + top 2 of hockey world league (which is now left only with lower ranked countries) + other 6 best ranked countries left ---> to OQT (which in turn gives the remaining 6 places for the olympics).
     
    There is almost no way for any hockey pro-league participant country to fail to reach at least the OQT since they are all highly ranked. 
    Here is a blog article that refutates the arguments given from Hockey India to pull out of Pro-league: https://be-hockey.com/what-is-happening-in-india/

    After this post you actually made me hope that Austria won.  Pity, it was really close.

    I'm angry. This was by far Germany's most disappointing result during these Games, and I'm totally blaming Gerald Hönig.

    It's still a strong team, it's just that it would be stronger with NHL players.  I think Canada, the USA, Russia and Sweden suffer from the lack of NHL most, but Russia (and Sweden to an extent) have some excellent talent in their home leagues they can use here.  Basically, I'd say Canada is still a very good team, 2nd only to Russia (OAR) here.  With NHL players, Canada is favourite but it's not a given that they would win (USA, Russia, Sweden or Finland could win gold).  Without the NHL players Canada was favourite to get a medal with Sweden, USA and Finland, with OAR as much favourites as Canada would be in the former scenario.

    I understand it, too. And given her history of injury, it would have been great if she had won. But sorry, this is even better.

    Unless someone builds an indoor alpine stadium the changes in weather throughout an event will always play a factor. You play the hand you were dealt and most athletes understand this. If not you'll get people complaining about the sun being in everyone's eyes for a 30 minute block before moving into a better angle.

    In German Team, they decided years ago, that the best athlete/double in single competition will compete in the team. They stayed with this decision during every single competition, they have to do so now, too.

    Thankfully, it won't be. According to rule 451.6 a Ski jumping competition at World Championships or Olympics cannot be decided in one jump, unless there is no way to repeat the second jump. So if the second jump won't take place today, they'll try tomorrow.
