    It's great to see them back but unfortunately, their roster is very weak with only 18 skaters. What's even worse, it seems that selection was very subjective and the consequence is that some of the players that should be on the team based only on skills - aren't there. Beside that, there are very young player with almost no international experience but who regularly play in domestic league for some years. I presume that they will get beaten hard by North Korea and Turkey, less hard by Hong Kong, UAE and Luxembourg. IMO, their only chance for points is Georgia.

    DPR Korea vs Turkey for promotion. Normally I'd say it's in the bag for North Korea, but the past few years have challenged that approach.... they just seem a step behind RSA and TUR....

    LUX is pretty much set for bronze, or silver if they can pull off an upset along the way.

    I expect UAE to take 4th and Hong Kong 5th, with BIH and GEO playing a tight game for that last place. Though, dpending on who HKG brings they might be ripe for a loss to BIH or GEO.

    Really is great to see not only a full continent here, but seven teams. Would be nice to see the tournament grow enough to even consider another Div III qualifier again. Think they would only need one more team for that to be a possibility.

    As others have said many times, a lot depends on whether teams have a full strength squad.

    With full strength squads, I'd go for ;

    TUR
    PRK
    LUX
    BIH
    HKG
    UAE
    GEO

    My main hope is for lots of close games.

    ......of course there would be better chances of close games if the IIHF hadn't excluded IRE, GRE and MGL.

    MGL might now choose to play just in the CCoA but GRE and IRE seem to be out of the picture completely.

    Yes, Greek Ice hockey is done after the IIHF excluded us from international competition. At the moment, Greece has 3 permanent ice rinks of smaller size. The newest one is in Thessaloniki: https://www.facebook.com/icebergcenter.gr

    Youth teams continue to exist, but the number of players is decreasing YoY. There are still a few romantics that are trying to keep it alive, but this will end soon too.
    There is no longer a Men's league (back in 2011 we had an 8-team league), now there are 3 teams that play each other once and a while.

    I had warned the IIHF back in 2012 that excluding us will not have the IIHF desired results. "Pressuring" the government to invest in hockey (building an Olympic size rink) by excluding or banning the National Team will have the opposite results. Greek Ice hockey will die.... Just 3 years later... I was unfortunately right.

    I had proposed (with a written letter to all member of the BOD of the IIHF) that both IIHF and Greek Federation/National Team, to persuade the Greek government that there are many benefits of opening an Olympic size rink in Greece. Only this way can ice hockey in Greece survive. Unfortunately they didn't listen.

    A few months ago, the Greek government, due to non-competition of the National Team, has also decided to dismantle the federation.

    Things are really tough for Greek ice hockey.

    Too bad the IIHF rarely listens to member federations.

    I am just confused of that the IIHF really wants.

    a country that has an Olympic size rink but doesn't develop the sport, or a country with smaller permanent rinks (in 2 different cities) that develops and improves the sport every year?

    The ideal would be an Olympic size rink, and the development of the sport, but are the teams participating in Div.III at the moment developing the sport by IIHF standards?

    Greece has 3 permanent rinks at the moment. 2 of them opened all year round.

    ATHENS:

    IceNskate: (800sqm)
    https://www.facebook.com/pagodromio.icenskate

    Athens Heart Ice rink (1000sqm)
    https://www.facebook.com/athensheartpagodromio

    THESSALONIKI:

    IceBerg Center (1000sqm)
    https://www.facebook.com/icebergcenter.gr

    If we had our National Team competing, in order for us to promote the sport and get sponsorship and TV coverage, the sport would grow even more. With publicity comes investors that would one day invest in the Olympic size rink.

    But, yes, it's very sad, shame IIHF was unable or unwilling to see the big picture

    Good to hear from you again, Dimitris, such a shame that the news is so bad for hockey in Greece. Hopefully things will get better after they've got worse !!
    I think the IIHF reacted to the problems in 2010 when Armenia hosted one division ( enough said ) and Greece had to pull out from hosting the other. Think most of us on IHF think IIHF got it wrong.

    Over-reacted, you might even say. Armenia almost had to host that group though. South Africa seemingly had it every other year, nobody was going to go DPR Korea, and Mongolia doesn't have indoor ice. By hosting it in Armenia, maybe they were also going with fingers crossed that they'd have a fully compliant roster which of course never happened either.

    If the IIHF reacted to Greece's unfortunate rink problem in 2009-10 by placing regulations that required them to have one to merely play in the World Championships, it would have made no developmental sense given they would have clearly known that Greece's full-size ice project was fouled by politics.

    Between Armenia and Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina hosted the 2008 qualifier and I still think, which I said at the time, it was probably because nobody playing in it had ice so the IIHF assisted the Bosnians in putting it on.

    Final rosters are up and UAE has only registered a total of 15 players, 2 goalies and 13 skaters. Which I believe is the bare minimum, also only 2 of the registered players normally plays defense. Additionally they are without their arguably biggest star in Juma Al Dhaheri.
    Suppose they could still register more players though.

    Good to see BIH competing, 0-13 is not too bad when you consider that PRK beat GEO 22-1 last year and also scored 12 against HKG and UAE.

    Halfway through the second period of their first game and Georgia has already equalled their total goals from last year. Don't know if they are that improved or if Luxembourg is just not in it today (and I suspect the latter; Georgia only has 6 shots as of now), but good to see a close game, at least score-wise.

    It would seem they woke up in the third period....9-0 they're winning that now.

    Obviously this didn't hold up. Luxembourg scored 8 unanswered goals in the third, while it took Georgia about 15 minute to get their first shot of the period. Would seem the Georgians just couldn't compete against Luxembourg for the full 60 minutes (letting in 7 goals in the final 10 minutes), though it is an improvement for Georgia over last year when they lost 19-0.

    Ouch two shorthanded goals take the score in the HKG-UAE game from 2-2 to 4-2...and now adding a third short handed goal to 7-2...bizarre.

    Looks as though HKG made a good decision to skip the CCoA.

    GEO must have scared LUX early on before fading to 3-15. At least that's better than last year's 0-19.

    Prospects for close games aren't looking good.

    Glad to see Georgia doing so much better this year. They can't get many shots off, but they are actually scoring goals, and have allowed 14 fewer goals than they did last year against North Korea and Luxembourg. Can't wait to see how they do against the UAE and Bosnia; those might actually be close games, relatively speaking.

    And two more shorthanded goals allowed by UAE, making it 5 in two games...some work to do there.

    B&H with two ugly defeats in first games but the opponents were the best on the tournament so there's no reason to be disappointed. In the upcomng games they'll certainly be able to score goals and maybe even catch o point or few. GK Pašović was very solid in both games and that's very important.

    Nice to see Georgia doing much better job this year, every progress is much appreciated. This division has a big potential for expansion, would be really nice to see more Asian team there and also Greece and Ireland, would be devastating if hockey in these two countries dies only because of IIHF rules which showed counter-productive in last 2 years. I hope that they'll realize it before Irish and Greek hockey completely disappear.

    I agree some promising signs from the first 2 rounds.

    Which of the three favourites will be strongest ?

    Can HKG get close to any of the favourites ?

    Are UAE really that weak and can GEO and BIH trouble them ?

    Who will win GEO v BIH and get their first IHWC win ?

    What I really like about this event is the exotic mix of nations that compete. Can any other sport produce such a diverse group of nations competing head to head ?

    Was there really over 1500 people watching the Turkey-Bosnia match? That's huge, and quite impressive for both Division III and Turkey. Wonder what they did to attract that many people in, seeing how every other game, except one, has had less than 100 spectators. Good to see.

    Interesting, possibly a Bosnian ex-pat community turning up?

    Good to see two muslim countries going at it and drawing in a crowd, good to see some diversity in modern ice hockey.

    Check out thehockeyhouse.net. They have some short but interesting articles on this tournament, with some nice photos.

    They had the home team playing in that game.

    Here's what I gather from the first two days of competition:
    - UAE is going to have a tough time of it... lacking their top player is not going to help, as the game against HKG showed.
    - PRK is getting weaker every year it seems. Judging by comparative results vs GEO, I'd give Luxembourg a better-than-even chance of winning that game for silver right now.
    - LUX has a bit of a goalie connundrum. Lepage isn't here this year, and has over the years been arguably their best goalie. Welter would be the clear #2 in past years, but has seemed to fight the puck a bit so far. Mangen is a solid goalie at the DivIII level, and I think you might have to give him a shot before the game vs PRK and decide who you have more faith in.
    - GEO has improved, and considering how much, I'd say they might even be in the discussion for 5th. Probably not beating out HKG for 4th, but UAE is not such a long shot as we might have thought coming in.
    - TUR is the runaway favourite as of right now, but a good game from LUX could turn some REALLY interesting final standings, something that's more possible now than I would have thought before it all began.
