    An awful game indeed. Hopefully Ustinovich is done for the tournament, he just isn't playing well at all. Still an improvement, albeit a litte one, on the beating France inflicted. One more point and...

    We will have to disagree. There's no fundamental difference between Dallman and, say, Alexei Ivanov. Both had zero ties with Kazakhstan and are primarily there just because of the KHL. Ethnicity...
  3. I did watch the first two periods and I have to...

    I did watch the first two periods and I have to say that goalkeeping for Kazakhs is the weak spot yet again. Though soft goals Ustinovich gave up is one thing, but the D line in this game was just...
  4. As for Kazakhstan, this is the first year in the...

    As for Kazakhstan, this is the first year in the nations history when team isn't dominated by players born in city of Ust-Kamenogorsk. 97' and later born kids might be the first real beneficial of...

    Saw last 30 minutes of the first game and Belarus looks really solid as expected. They have a deep roster which will get better with each coming year even if their better players will decline...

    Hopefully this Ukraine roster will surprise many, They are a very young team, but this roster is the first one in a long while that has quite a few potential pro players on it. Plenty of players have...

    Worth noting that Induss is also eligible next year as well.

    Shame, but not totally surprising. It was always a three horse race. Belarus was long due some success.

    Looks like Kazakhstan will get it done. They are in a great position as things stand. All the players I expected to perform like Mikhailis, Shestakov are really doing so. Shame that it is their last...

    If you would have seen the 5 periods I did in past days, you'd say 5:0 is a very fair reflection of what is going on. We never even saw all Latvia potential, as in two games we iced more than 30...

    Nop, Latvia as of now is vastly superiour. We should look for reasons of their unlikely comeback yesterday, rather than think todays result is an anomaly of some sorts.

    Also Ryspayev is a mindless...

    I watched first two periods, Latvia up three goals, Kazakhstan can't get out of their own zone. I switch the game off and now I read that we lost the game? What the hell?

    Hopefully the stream works outside Latvian borders as both my favorite hockey nations meet.

    Seeing the first twenty minutes, I fail to grasp how Korea almost threw it away.

    They again count post game shots as saves for goalie totals? :(

    Cool to see Samvel representing Estonia. He hasn't played on Estonian ice since 07/08 season for sure. Thought he might be another of those Estonia's ethnic Russians who hold on to their Russian...

    Need to look up game protocol, but I imagine it has a lot to do with some of the better players reporting to Kazakhstan U20 camp. But yeah, I'm also not a fan of Ustinka icing this team in the first...

    While I'm at it, I have to say Ukrainian roster is garbage. Only players worth singling out seems to be Lyalka and four 98' borns - previously members of Donbass academy. If they stay up, it should...

    No chance, buddy. If anyone besides Kazakhstan wins this tournament, it most likely will be France. Just check how Kazakhstan fared at last U18 tournament - link This team has already proved that...

    I believe barys is right. They won't be suiting up for Kazakhstan this year. Though I don't think they are lost in a long term, as both are tied to Kazakhstan NT due to (numerous) previous...

    Unfortunately, you are wrong. The lack of elite-ish talant coming out of the town in recent years makes you think so. Last talant to commit to Russia is Roman Khalikov, right now a teammate to...

    Best of Ustinka players tend to play for team Russia.

    Kazakhstan looks (from stat sheet and that 5 min video floating around) really good, which is expected, even without their star defender Zinchenko. Shame that Mikhailis is so short, really skilled...

    Buy on gameday, there is zero chance that arena will be even half-full, let alone completely sold out. CSKA is not a popular team these days.

    About what time frame you are talking about? I think current stat display format has been in place for ~3 years. Before that? Yeah, it was catastrophe and no real stats are available anywhere.

    Nice win. Also weird observation, that out of 18 goals scored only four are on PP. Then again their PP conversion is 50% so far.
