they should forget about the groups. play an equal number of games against each team. seeding based only on points, 4 15 minute periods (regulation), with 15 minute sudden death periods (overtime) (all rounds).So who came up with these pools? Group A has Canada and a whole bunch of shall we say hockey non-powerhouses. Group B has USA, Sweden, the Checks, and Finland. Not exactly balanced. I suspect Group A also had Russia but they were asked not to come so that likely created the unbalance.
