    Head coach Ted Nolan has been to Latvia to see some players in action only three times since summer (also worked as a consultant for the U-20 team at the WJC) so mainly players that he hasn't seen/still have to prove their place are going to take part in the tournament.

    Rather interesting roster. Strange to see Masaļskis on the roster as probably there were some candidates that needed to be checked more (Muštukovs). As far as defense goes it's good to see Tribuncovs back on the team at least for this tourney. Will be interesting to see him play once again. Though it's probably because the likes of Jerofejevs, Jass aren't going. Was expecting to see Saviels, but oh well. Jakovļevs would probably be there if he wouldn't have to go to that MHL thing. As for forwards, wonder why Bičevskis isn't there. Good to see that Hartmanis is still on their radar and I'll be keeping my eye on Skvorcovs. He has been rather productive in BOL this season. By the looks of how Pečura played this season he probably is just to fill out the center position.

    a bit worse then Danes, I'd say but we had like 3 one on one situations (Meija had two of them) that we couldn't realize. So in the end, if we talk about chances, it was probably very equal. The defense was at times terrible, probably because of so many MHL guys... Took stupid penalties

    Bukarts seems to be stuck inbetween at the moment- already a leder in such tournaments but not yet ready to be a leader in KHL team.

    A very undisciplined Latvian side made the game easier for us, which we obviously failed to capitalise on though with like 4mins 5v3 power play. All in all a pretty even game. With good goaltending performances in both ends as well. Although our backup goaltender who did not play somehow won man of the match :D

    Yeah, a lot of stupid penalties by young MHL guys and Metalurgs guys, due to inexperience and probably over-trying to play Nolan's physical hockey...

    Who was supposed to be backup? Nielsen or Dahm? Latvian commentators said that Dahm was supposed to play and they thought he was in the net half way through the first period until they noticed it was Nielsen. Also wasn't Lassen the player of the game on Danish side?

    As far as Latvian performance goes it was rather stellar on the first two lines but bottom six didn't look that good. Džeriņš looked good and of course Bukarts is very good at this level kind of competitions. I expected a bit more from Liepāja guys but they didn't really put on anything. Well they didn't seem to have much game time anyways. Tribuncovs looked very confident and it's too bad that he already got an injury. But it's apparent that guys like Salija aren't yet ready to be here. A lot of positional mistakes and it seemed that Danes felt each other a lot better. Also as mentioned a lot of stupid penalties.

    I thought we looked awful, and half-way through the game I was sad because I realized that we will end up taking some of these guys to WC. I wish we would bring bit more experienced roster to this tournament.

    Well, at best we would take full two lines and 2 defensemen to WC from this roster so that doesn't bother me much, Bukarts-Džeriņš-Meija were good and Ķēniņš-Štāls-Cipulis also, at least in this kind of competition but others... well, they can try but it's not their time yet.

    Plus we didn't see Bērziņš, Saulietis here due to injuries who were good last year in this kind of tournament and not bad in WC, also Jekimovs from SM Liiga is injured, not to mention other KHL guys.... Still two games ahead, so we'll see if the team improves like it did last year.

    No I think the jersey numbers just got switched around. Nielsen was always supposed to start yesterday.

    Regarding the game today against France. Although I did not watch the game, I'm pretty impressed with us keeping France down to that few shots. Pretty promising considering this is a lot of the the defensive line we will have in the WC, even if 2 or maybe 3 defenseman are likely to be replaced by Jesper Jensen, Kasper Jensen and Philip Larsen (when Stars hopefully fail to qualify for the NHL playoffs).

    Well, well I guees it's not that bad. If the Danes could bring Bødker, Nielsen, Eller, Larsen (wishfull thinking, but not totally unrealistic at this moment), Morten Madsen, Mads Cristensen and Frederik Andersen (I will be surprised if any team makes more than 4-5 goals on him!) the Danish team will be quite different and much more powerfull. I know that Norway also could bring a few more - among others Zuccarello - but the difference between the best Danish players and the next best is larger than is the case for the Norwigians IMO.

    It would have been pretty impressive if a reinforced Al-Bank League team/Danish development roster could match a SEL calibre team(including one of the better players in the KHL) over 60 minutes and guess three games in three days, might also have been a factor for some of the Danish players.
