    Good for Skabelka, if Kostitsyn would of given reason for not showing up or in turn showing up later then the agreement, you can discipline him behind closed doors but to not even give reason...good for removing him. Time for Stefanovich to really step up, really liked him before he left for North America and he has started to really get his game back in the BOL, now prove yourself for National team.

    Sad Shinkevich is out but really nice to see Lisovets rewarded.

    Despite a brilliant campaign in previous round, Ukraine will travel to Vojens, Denmark without almost all its best players: besides Ruslan Fedotenko and Alexei Ponikarovsky, back in NHL, also Dynamo Moscow Konstantin Kasyanchuk - personal reasons - Companion Kyiv defender Ruslan Borisenko - fractured rib - and Donbas Donets'k forward Sergei Varlamov - reason still unknown - won't travel to Denmark

    Hmm that certainly seem pretty far from their ideal lineup (even if we aren't considering the NHLers).

    Damn, if that was the roster for Ukraine in the first round, there's a good chance that Poland would be playing here.

    Final cuts for Ukraine: out experienced defender Sergei Klimentiev (a surprise for me) and Aleksandr Materukhin (another big surprise)...
    With this roster I don't see any chance for UKR

    They say Materukhin was a day late for the camp and in an "unfit condition for national team", whatever that implies.

    I always find it interesting how a player can have no team and still be picked for the National Team. Unless he's just left his team

    Him and Sokil parted ways in mid-January and it was rumoured he was going to return to the club but he didnt. It hasnt been long plus its Karpenko, you know what you have in him.

    Belarus without Kostitstyn no chance to win something, they are very poor at the offence...

    A less than impressive win(game) by a Danish team, that at times looked a bit lost and had to rely on Frederik Andersen in goal, in order to secure the 3 points.

    I was at the game. Some reflections on what I noticed - not that I am an expert or anything :-)

    Frederik Andersen indeed looked very confident in goal.

    Ukraines goalie on the other hand looked very insecure. Even during the warmup he let in like 50% of the warmup shots from the blueline. Denmark should have fired a lot more shots at him, but they sometimes looked as if they would rather try to pass the puck around for a big chance than try their luck from distance.

    The shots on goal are a little mis-representative of the game as a whole. Denmark had a lot of shots just wide of the goal, which don't show in the statistics, and although Ukraine apparently had 22 shots on goal, only a couple of them were dangerous. Most of them were just random shots which Andersen had no trouble with at all. I never really got the idea that they would get back into the game once Denmark was ahead. 4-0 would not have been an unfair result.

    Denmark took way to many stupid penalties, but on the bright side our boxplay looked very good (or Ukraines powerplay looked very bad?). I think Ukraine had maybe a single good opportunity in their powerplay. Despite Ukraine taking more penalties, Denmark only had a couple of powerplay opportunities, as the penalties overlapped and Ukraine numbers are pumped up by a match misconduct.

    I suspect Denmark will have to step up a bit against Slovenia and Belarus.

    As was impressed with the attendance - I think it might even be a record for SE Arena. As far as I remember even the opening game when the Arena was first complete did not have that many spectators?

    Slovenia over Belarus... I did NOT see that coming.
    This gives Denmark a very good boost, they just gotta keep it rolling now.
    That being said... what would the world say to seeing Anze Kopitar playing in the Olympics? Slovenia has put themselves in a very good position, defeating the pre-tournament favourites in the first match.

    Were they even the favorites? Personally I thought that Denmark is the one with the slight advantage, especially after seeing who turned up for Belarus squad. And I was really baffled when Belarus commentator said before the game that it should be the easiest of the tournament. Sometimes it makes me scratch my head how people who should know about hockey still think of the world hockey levels as it was on the day when Salo made that terrible mistake.

    How are the rules in case of equal points? Been searching for the tie breaker, but can't find it.

    Congrats to Slovenia, by far the best team in this tournament.
    We had too many players just not performing and especially in the 1st and 3rd period it seemed like Slovenia knew exactly how we were gonna play. Ironically they got the lead in the period we seemed to have control in. It is evident to me that when we play teams where we want to have puck possession a lot we are struggling without the NHLers to create our offense. We saw it against Ukraine and against Italy last WC.
    Probably a good time to try a new coach with a new approach which also is the case after this years WC.

    Congratulations to Slovenia! What heart this team has shown! I know somewhere Anze Kopitar and Jan Mursak are having a toast!
    Slovenia has once again punched above their weight and shown us all what's so special about international ice hockey.

    On another note I am heartbroken for the Danes. So close again. Very encouraging to see the soldout crowds and great support they got in Vojens. Its a long ways away for 2018 but Denmark is moving in the right direction as a hockey nation. Don't despair.

    Giant congratulations to the Slovenes on two giant upsets! Well deserved and will be very interested to see them in Sochi, competing in their very first Olympic ice hockey tournament.

    With that said, I am very sad for my Danish friends here at IHF. You guys are, in my eyes, a true hockey nation, and a very good one at that, and you deserve to be in the Olympics.

    I did not see this coming....

    Slovenia, seeded 3rd coming into the tournament, first take down the top-seeded Belarussians with a solid victory, then the favoured Danes, and are the first to clinch a spot to Sochi. Huge congratulations!

    congrats to slovenia. at the same time, watch out for the forthcoming wc. it's funny but there's a high chance that after this wc we'll see a div-1 squad in sochi :) it may turn out it's easier to make it through to the olymlics than to remain among the hockey elite.

    Not extremely surprising but still awesome. Slovenia has a very good generation of players right now and a team that works. That they can beat Denmark who have to go without their top stars is imho also the minor thing...the bigger surprise in this group was that Belarus couldn't get past Slovenia. I had guessed BLR would go through. Instead it is Slovenia - very cool!

    But congrats to Slovenia :-)

    belarus came to vojens literally defenceless and partially offenceless. you can't succeed without solid defence especially when your best offencive players are unavailable playing overseas or left off the team due to misconduct.
