    Women's side: China qualified for the 2010 Olympics in 2009, then got relegated from the women's top side. Women's Worlds were not played in 2010, but the very next tournament, 2011, they only managed to squeak out one win and lost on tiebreak, getting relegated to Division II.
    Considering that the women's game has much less depth than the men's tournaments, this is an even more "impressive" relegation record than Australia's would be if they actually do get relegated (which I doubt).

    However, let's not forget that AUS is also missing some of their best players of recent years: GK Matt Ezzy (who had a 95.08% SVS% in the 2011 promotion run), F Greg Oddy and Nathan Walker, D Mark Rummukainen and Josh Harding... that's quite a lot of talent missing.

    And in rapid succession, the Kazakhs followed them (and subsequently was almost relegated to Division II-A this year).

    6:3 to Iceland. It seems to be "bye-bye div IIA" for Spain this year. Disapointing.

    Australia beat Belgium 3:1, that means Spain is going down to D2B. Very very bad performances by Spain...

    Croatia's shot differential was around 11-1 to start the game against serbia. It was probably a sign of bad things to come to serbia. But... it seems that both goalies are not doing too good.

    I am a bit shocked at how fast it went from 4-0 to 4-3.

    It seemed like the whole croatian team stopped playing at 4-0, including Tomljenovic. Lukovic hasn't really played that well either. Luckily the croatians got the 5th goal near the end of 2nd period.

    Serbia looked really down from the beginning of the first period. They are by far slower than the Croatians and the defense is quite messy.
    And then we have MrLukovic at goal.
    Man, I don´t really understand the guy. He made some things that if I wouldn´t already been grey-haired I propably turned now. Messing with the puck behind the goal several times. And the out of nowhere he shows really classy skills. Unbeliveble.

    After the fourth goal Serbs attacked more and the Croatian defense opened up. Serbia played a bit faster and for a second Croatians turned from cool to confused.
    The Serbian defense is as I said messy. A bit confused maybe. Thats Serbias weakest part for the moment.

    All in all: there is no doubt that Croatia is the better team than Serbia. Hecimovic, Mac and Prpic plays really good and makes a good difference.

    Yet I´m surprised that Serbia despite of their lack of season still keeps quiet even steps with the hosts.

    End of story. The better team won even if Serbia tried to challenge. They had a couple of chances in the first five or six minutes that at least could have put some nerve into the game.

    Congrats to Croatia. It felt like they had some more potentials to show. Yet I think they must step a little bit more to have the chance to remain in div IB. At times I saw some worrying things in the defense that could be costly in a higher division. Prpic was the man of the game in my eyes.

    Congrats of course to Serbia too. Hell of heart and guts in the team - no doubt. I excpected a little from Nemanja Vucurevic and Dimitrije Filipovic but I was perhaps unrealistic. Milovanovic, Nemanja Jankovic and especially Sretovic played really good. A better domestic league, at least one team competeting in a regional league and some serious practicing with the defense could give some results...

    Goalie Mr Lukovic was amazing advantage for Croats and it was obvious from the beginning that he is not for this level (his category is under 16). Croats better, it was visibly that they are better. Serbian team very confused in PP and PK situations but they deserved this result, realy very proudly fight from all of them. Bravo!

    p.s.
    Lukovic is ready for domestic league now :/

    Even though admittedly Lukovic wasn't up to the challenge, Serbia didn't lose the game due to the goalie. Croatia was simply miles ahead of the game, even though it looked like they really didn't even have to try. Actually, Croatia didn't play that good a game at all, but just their basic game was enough. I'd say Lukovic is a good enough goalie for this level, Croatia is just too good to play 2nd div. Just my 5 cents though.

    Belgium has some chance to advance instead perhaps? Considering that they shut out serbia 4-0, and that serbia managed to actually score four goals on croatia... I think that the final result is not a done deal?

    I think that Belgium is at Serbias level and thats a step behind Croatia for the moment.
    Serbia tried and the effort they made last night was really good but that was there maximum and Croatias performance was not. Croatia is the best team here no doubt. And don´t forget that Belgium lost to Australia.

    Nevertheless if there is a possibility for Belgium it is that they are possibly better trained than Serbia due to a better domestic season. I assume that they will play with a lot of discipline and patiently and not rush into anything and just wait for a chance. With better physics they can maybe, maybe worry the Croatians a bit.

    The quality still is certainly on the hosts side but I think that they can´t go to this game half-hearted.

    Result is much better than the situation on the ice. Cro team very powerful in the first period, and during the half of second. Then we have very quick 3 goals that has made advantage in favor of Serbian team, but advantage is not possible if you have on the net useless goalie :/

    Serbian player in Hungary: "In Serbia the league is weak and some teams can't even get ice time. Here in Budapest hockey is much more serious. We have intense on- and off-ice practices each day and we play up to three games every week".

    I was little suprised why Rankovic wasn't starter. Lukovic is making tons of rebounds and our 6th goal was on him.

    Croatia is better team, but we simply stopped after 4:0. And kudos to Serbians for not giving up, they showed good team spirit.

    Don't know what to expect against Belgium. They seemed as our main rival, but then they lose to Australia...

    I think that Lukovic is meant to be the 1st goalie and that Bera wanted to rest him before the clash with Croatia. As for Rankovic it is hard to see if is would be more focused than Lukovic after only one match.
    I think that the teamstaff propably wanted to put the more experienced goalie against Croatia with possible pressure from the stands and so on that usually follows the clashes between Croatia and Serbia.

    I want to defend Lukovic a bit. Yes, he made some big mistakes but he also made a couple of great savings. And even though I think that Serbias defense at times played better than excpected (tons of players in front of Lukovic sometimes...) they also made few horrible mistakes. The last Croatian PP-goal was a good example when the defense seemed to think about planting springflowers rather than to defend their goal.

    Good luck against Belgium tonight Croatia!

    Hopefully you are right, but we are going to find out if it's true today around 22:30.

    Looking back I am glad that we didn't earn promotion last year, because we would have no chance, or very slim one, to stay in D1B this year. Except Rendulić, Marković and Cronucks majority of our team played nothing but domestic league or EBEL U20.

    If nothing changes on better next season (croatian club in MOL, for example), at least we will have four more Cronucks at disposal (especially Ouzas) and that should boost are chances to survive in D1B.

    I think you got the answer to your question today. Rankovic allowed 3 goals on 15 shots against Iceland. He played excellent against Australia but that was just one game, and Lukovic is still (unfortunately) Serbia's best goaltender.

    A job well done for Belgium I would say. Avoided relegation, got some nice wins, kept the door for promotion open and picked up a silver medal. Hopefully the RBIHF keeps working hard on improving the Elite League and the grass roots level and the results will keep coming.

    Congrats to Croatia! A bright good tournament and finally the long-wanted promotion! The way I see it, things are looking up for croatian hockey right now :)

    Given that KHL Medvescak attracts around 8,000 fans per game, and this over a few dozen home games, I'm wondering how come Croatia wasn't able to gather more than 3,700 as a tournament high during this short but important competition.

    Medveščak is popular not only among the hockey fans who visit national team games as well, but also among those who watch whatever is the main attraction in the town. Yesterday it was handball, today it is hockey, tommorow it will be something else.

    Interesting choice, Serbian goalie Lukovic as the best in the team? Someone joking or what? Milan Lukovic 88,2 ! I'm sure that Croatia wouldn't be on the first place with him, even with stronger team :/

    Never mind, good result by Croats, all the best in Division 1B next year :/

    Croatia was best in Zagreb and absolutely deserved Div1B ! Hope next year there will be more naturalized names because higher level need some stronger goalie, and minimum 2-3 players like Prpic and Sertich. I wish you all the best :P

    Serbian player in Hungary: "In Serbia the league is weak and some teams can't even get ice time. Here in Budapest hockey is much more serious. We have intense on- and off-ice practices each day and we play up to three games every week".

    Michael Ouzas, Dario Kostovic, Adam Naglich and Sasa Martinovic - all of them could play for Croatia next year. It should be an interesting tournament.

    Can someone tell me what happened to Fred Perowne, Marc-André Fournier and Daniel Jacob (along with Pavel Popravka). Why are they they not called up to the national team? I know they're not in the domestic league anymore, but it doesn't change that they still have citizenship.

    Congrats to Croatia on a well deserved promotion.

    See? I told you guys Belgium would take silver!

    What a disappointing performance by Spain..........incredible considering how good they were in 2011, playing against near-elite teams. Granted, they didn't have star goaltender Anders Alcaine (any idea as to why not?), but they still should have medaled considering their roster.

    Meanwhile, considering the collapse of their national league, the collapse of Partizan as a professional team, and the absence of Marko Kovacevic, Serbia did very, very well. I really thought they would relegate.......instead, they picked up 2 wins and fought Croatia tooth and nail.

    With all those players + this year Cronucks (minus Hecimovic) we should stay in D1B. As I wrote earlier it is important that depth players like Cunko, Tadic, Miric plays in some competition like MOL league, as Slohokej doesn't exist anymore. With them playing serious league + cronucks and players from abroad (Markovic - Dukla, Rendulic - HPK ?, I heard rumor that Silovic will sign contract with Zvolen's A team) we could compete maybe for medal.

    However, there is a lot of work to do in operation called "WC D1B 2014.".

    Congrats to our players and staff on well deserved promotion.

    p.s. first time in history that serbian athlete got cheer from croatian crowd (Milan Lukovic when he recieved his best player of Serbian team award). :)
