The Power Rankings are for the enjoyment of IIHF.com readers, and reflect the progress of teams during the IIHF World Championship. They are distinct from the official IIHF World Ranking.

Power Rankings (as of May 6)

1.

CZECH REPUBLIC
"Elias brings Czechs leadership"...that sounds awfully familiar

2.

CANADA
"Take the Isostar in your glass/We just kicked your..."

3.

GERMANY
Honestly, 2-0 is more our style than 5-4

4.

SWEDEN
Tre Kronor is très bien

5.

RUSSIA
Krutov and Makarov would have beaten Denmark 14-3, but...OK

6.

FINLAND
The last time Finland lost to Germany, Mikko Koivu was 10

7.

NORWAY
Who needs Pronger and Niedermayer when you've got Tollefsen and Holøs?

8.

USA
Conklin’s just a Central Europe kind of guy

9.

DENMARK
We lost, but Nichlas showed lots of Hardt and Kirill was a Star-kov

10.

SWITZERLAND
This Canadian style we understand, but Norway needs further study

11.

SLOVAKIA
We've got to send the Finns straight to Helsinki

12.

FRANCE
Incroyable! In the penalty box, they did not even serve wine and Rocquefort

13.

SLOVENIA
Fortunately, a five-goal lead isn’t the toughest lead to defend in hockey

14.

BELARUS
Let’s reserve an automatic spot in 2014 for the "Austrian Qualifier"

15.

LATVIA
It could have been worse – imagine if Dennis Rodman had played too

16.

AUSTRIA
“This means nothing to me, this means nothing to me” (Ultravox, “Vienna”)
