Men's competition

The format was changed from the version used in the 1998 and 2002 tournaments. In the new format, the number of teams was reduced from 14 to 12 and the preliminary and final group stages were combined to form two six-team groups with the top four from each group advancing to the quarter-finals.

These changes had the following effects:
  • They increased the number of group games played by the "Super Six", who previously automatically qualified for the final group stage, from three to five.
  • They ensured that all teams in the tournament were treated more or less equally, and ensured that NHL players could play the entire tournament whether or not they were part of the "Super Six" group of teams.
  • They ensured that only four teams from each group would advance to the knock-out stage. This would give the games more meaning.

The teams that automatically qualified include the same "Super Six" teams that were automatically qualified for the final group stage in the two previous tournaments, plus Slovakia and Germany which (IIHF rankings notwithstanding) are generally regarded by fans as being the seventh and eighth best teams. The ninth place was given to the host nation, Italy. The final three places were allotted through qualification tournaments in which Switzerland, Kazakhstan and Latvia won places.

Trivia

In a celebration of the gold in Stockholm on 27 February, the Swedish team was seen in front of ads for sponsors of the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation, not the ones of the Swedish Olympic Committee. This could have led to Sweden's disqualification, but the Finnish opponents in the final game chose not to report the incident to the IOCmarker [103324].

Women's competition

The loss of the United States to Sweden in Semifinal 1 was one of the most important events in the history of international women's ice hockey. It was the first time that either the US or Canada had lost in an international competition (other than to each other).
