Using NHL 14, each listed country will be entered into an ongoing tournament. The overall goal is to promote up to Tier 1 and hold yourself there for as long as possible. Each team will play every other team in their tier once before the playoffs begin. The team who [b]finishes last in their tier[/b] in [b]Tier 1[/b] and [b]Tier 2[/b] will be [i][b]relegated[/b][/i] to the tier below them. Teams who [b]win their tier's championship[/b] from [b]Tier 2[/b] and [b]Tier 3[/b] will be [i][b]promoted[/b][/i] to the next highest tier. If a team from Tier 1 wins their tier's championship, they will just remain there, because it's the highest tier. Same with finishing last in Tier 3. [b]Postseason:[/b] The top four teams from each tier will be entered into separate playoffs. Never will a team from one tier face a team from another tier. Each tier will have a four-team tournament. All series will be best-of-3.
