    If that's the case, still half the teams in this division benefit greatly from NA players and even though we don't know who is being promoted yet, KOR and KAZ are favorites at this point and they...

    I agree, only teams in this tournament without NA help are Poland and Ukraine. Korea has made big progress, but another year will not prevent them from getting run off the ice in the Olympics or WC...

    Poland lose to Kazakhstan 1-0 in OT, GWG scored by Kevin Dallman, assisted by Dawes. So far the North American's are making a big impact on this tournament, time for Poland to get with the program...

    Poland top Hungary 5-4 today in a wild game which saw Poland score 4 first period goals and Hungary make a 3rd period push to almost tie it up. Daniel Vizi's game misconduct for checking from behind...

    Poland currently down 2-0 to S. Korea in a shocker so far, Poland beat S. Korea 3-0 in a warm up but this Poland team is playing horrible, worst I've seen in a few years even from years in Div. 1B. ...

    Good question. He played well in the two warm up games vs. Lithuania and S. Korea, even scored a goal. Personally I fear inner hockey politics are showing their ugly head again in Poland. ...

    This tournament is all over the place, kind of makes me suspicious about the GB-LIT 8-0 outcome.

    PRE-TOURNEY EXHIBITION GAME (Last one before final squad is decided):

    4/16/16
    KOR - POL 0:3
    1:0 Łyszczarczyk – Zapała (4.),
    2:0 Malasiński - Zapała, Dronia (7.),

    Some Poland pre-tourney notes:
    POL-GBR 4:3 (OT), POL-GBR 2:3 (OT), LIT-POL 2:8
    Poland squad is very similar to the Olympic qualifying tournament squad from February. In the game vs. LIT on...

    It's actually working today, I'm watching the POL-GBR game right now. Maybe they heard us ;-)

    Yes, I noticed this too. Seems like the laggy feed has been consistent for most if not all games. Unfortunately because it's free it probably won't be fixed :-/

    Poland Roster:

    Goalies:
    Kamil Lewartowski (MOSM Tychy)

    Like most thought, it all came down to the final game on the final day of this tournament. Almost every POL-HUN game I can remember end with a very close result, especially those in IIHF tournaments...

    What I'm saying is your style of evaluation or impression of the level of games is bias. Those games were obviously boring to you because you are Hungarian, so naturally any games involving Hungary...
  15. Sticky: Poll: Your assessment of every Poland game as boring...

    Your assessment of every Poland game as boring and low level is quite amusing, I know you are biased and all but still. Let's hope your team doesn't come into tomorrow's game with your thinking, or...

    Danton will be playing in this EIHC tournament, however it's not clear if he will be eligible to play at the world championships though. Same goes for Cichy and Raszka.

    Congrats to both Kazakhstan and Hungary for advancing to the elite division, Kazakhstan undoubtedly deserved it. I would say Hungary deserved it more because of their investment in the sport lately...

    That lapse in concentration in the end is what cost us the game. The puck was tied up along the side boards, one of the Polish players was even gesturing to the ref. to blow his whistle instead of...

    I don't think it was a surprise Poland beat Ukraine, most picked Ukraine to finish last even before the tournament started. The fact Poland beat Japan perhaps that was a surprise, but I think...

    Well it seems like Sat. HUN-POL for second place and promotion. I have to say I'm not as impressed with Hungary as I thought I was going to be, I thought they'd be a bit more of a sure in for second...
  21. I am not sure of the Hungarian squad when Ukraine...

    I am not sure of the Hungarian squad when Ukraine beat them, but when Poland played Hungary and beat them at the EIHC, the Hungarian squad was a very different one from the one at these WC. This...

    Poland GK Odrobny played an excellent game, he is known for sometimes playing an unorthodox style and getting into trouble with risky play, he kept his head and discipline in this game though and it...

    You are correct, there are players on this team with great experience which are indispensable like Laszkiewicz or Kolusz, however there are also a few experienced players which are well past their...

    You sir must be seeing the glass half full, not half empty, that's good.

    The roster itself is really not that different with the exceptions of Dronia and Borzecki which are in the playoffs for...
  26. That's a shady way around it. Ideally the...

    That's a shady way around it. Ideally the players playing on the KHL/EBEL Medvescak squad shouldn't be able to just jump from one team to another. Also I'm sure the teams in the domestic league are...

    Maybe I was beating around the bush with my point, but here is my point. Any teams from a transnational league such as the KHL or EBEL, which are not located in the founding country (e.g....

    IIHF has many ridiculous rules and eligibility requirements, but one issue that is way overdue is the issue of these "super clubs". Croatian players from teams like Medvescak, which is a hockey...

    My predictions:

    1. Kazakhstan
    2. Italy (Canada)
    3. Hungary (Canada)
    4. Japan

    Not to get too far off topic here, but Wolski did play in Sanok during the NHL lockout. Unfortunately after that Sanok could not compete with the type of salary and skill level a KHL team was...

    I could not disagree more. In no other major international sport is there this requirement to play in a domestic league for two years prior to representing a country where a player already possesses...

    This is where Croatia has a very unique and large advantage over other hockey federations. I say this because there is a KHL team in Croatia, which is by far the most "hockey obscure" country to...

    It seems pretty clear what the NHL is doing, and that is distancing itself from the Olympics, especially the next ones in South Korea where the time difference between there and North America will be...

    This is true, you are correct. So same as participation in KHL now, participation in EBEL which is also a very high level of play, has greatly benefited the Croatian national team. The KHL being a...

    It has to be admitted though that Croatia is in the position they are now, not so much due to their domestic development of players, but because there is a KHL team in their country.

    YES! We had to wait for this moment a couple years.

    This shouldn't be celebrated too long though. Let this be the positive push that everyone in the Polish hockey community needs to go forward...

    Four goals in the 3rd period for us, whatever the coach did or said in the 2nd intermission worked.

    Now the two most important games against CRO and GB. I'm just hoping for no more slip ups in...

    Very narrow victory for Poland over Lithuania. Poland was out-shot, and out-played for some big chunks of the game. You could certainly see how the presence of Zubrus and having home team advantage...

    Today will be a big test for Poland playing against the host Lithuanians with Zubrus who are coming off a big win against the Netherlands.
