I assumed all of the top 7/8 teams not Canada and US were competing for the bronze. Once they were put on the same side of the Bracket, I assumed all of those teams were competing for Silver.

Ok then replace every compete in my post with contend. They are equivalent to me.

Crap I forgot Sweden. That throws everything off. They take the other medal before injuries.

Just because you are playing (competing) for something doesn't mean you have a realistic shot (contending) at winning it.

Which is why I didn't include Norway, Latvia, Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland(ish) and instead said top 7/8 teams

Do we know if th semi-final times are set? I.e., do we know if a would-be USA-Canada game is at 6 or 11? Or is that decision still pending?
