    English interview with Bosnian coach Kevin Auerbach:http://www.hsbih.ba/hokejaska-reprez...vo-u-istanbul/

    I'm curious about that will Bosnia find it's first victory here. They had definietly better season than the previous one - at least Vukovi played some extra games in the Balkan League.

    Very disappointing but completely understandable.

    Georgia could be a threat to the minor placings with have several new players in their late teens and early 20's.

    There are on same level according to interview. 3 players are missing from last year but they have one foreign player and few new on roster, so they are probably on same level. We will see

    thank you!

    HKG only with 15 players this team, and left few good ones out from last year (dont know the reasons tho). so i think BIH might get a better result vs. them today.

    Turkey a very young squad.

    For Georgia Dumbadze seems to be very good for this level. He might be the only one for Georgia tho. Dont know how many the will concede against Turkey.

    Trim said Georgia have a very young roster, dont know if the are on a better level this time, but last year the avg. age was 23 and this year 24 so i think thats not a big change and they might be even more experienced with many players coming back.

    First, congrats to Bosnia for their first win, always nice to see competition at this level.

    Secondly, shouldn't this thread (and the others for the respective 2016 tournaments) be stickied and replace last years tournaments?

    Georgia holding their own against Turkey midway through the second, and even led 1-0 after the first. That goal by Dumbadze to make it 1-0 was also really nice, and I got to say I like that they have someone in the arena trying to pump up the Turkish fans, even if they aren't going along with him.

    That has to hurt for Georgia. Three minutes left in the game and tied with Turkey 4-4, only to let in a real weak goal: Turkish player from behind Georgian net passes to someone being covered, only the Georgian player seemingly wasn't paying attention, as soon as that goal went in he went down like he knew he screwed up. Rough way to lose.

    Still, considering Turkey won 13-1 last year against Georgia, got to give credit to the Georgians for playing so well. Hopefully they keep it up the rest of the tournament.

    Congrats to Bosnia for their first win on an IIHF event. Thinking about that they lost this game last year to 8-0, definietly huge stepp forward.
    Seeing first days results, this group became closer than it was even last year.

    Thanks for the info.


    After today's results, it looks like there is no clear favourite to win. Very good.

    Yes, great first day with three tight matches. TUR and RSA both won narrowly and remain favourites but there could be surprises ahead.

    Love that LUX iced someone called SINNER and he picked up 2+10 for checking from behind !!

    lets see if the results will be as close as yesterday. Seems like the weaker nations catched up a lot.

    but i also think that HKG and also Turkey aren't that good compared to last year.

    In the case of Hong Kong the question for me is that why not all their players from CIHL (here: http://www.eliteprospects.com/league...p?leagueid=648) are there, and also, why CIHL season is still ongoing. Why is it not syncronised with the World C.?

    After the excitement of the first day there were three mismatches on day 2. I saw the live stream of some of the GEO v BIH game and it was totally one-sided. Seems the day 1 games may have been the key match ups for the group. I will be interested to see how GEO do against RSA and LUX.

    Yep that one today will be interesting. Bookmakers think this will be a close one, will tune in and see how Georgia plays in this one.

    Good match by both teams. There are some players from Georgia who can play Division 2A easy. They are good team and this is level from 2B

    Georgia won against RSA 6:5, turning the game from 1:3. For me definietly they improved the most since the last year.

    Really impressed by Georgia this year. At the rate they are going they may compete for a Division IIB spot in a couple years.

    Though noticed that most of their best players are ethnic Russians, and that the number of Russians has grown on the team. Curious about how they are going about getting them, seeing that there is not really any reason to move to Georgia from Russia, especially to play hockey.

    Definitely. Were it not for that weak goal against in their game against Turkey, Georgia would have had a chance at promotion this year. As it stands they should be considered a threat next year, which would be something for them. Though hopefully they don't increase the number of Russians and try to actually develop hockey in Georgia (I've been there, its not doing well).

    GEO could still gain promotion if RSA beat ( in normal time ) TUR tomorrow by 1 goal and it is lower scoring than 5-4.

    Doesn't Georgia's loss against Turkey count as the first tie-breaker though?

    Shamin, Kochkin, Koyzulin, Svanidze

    Are the players which are different from last year and are GEO/RUS ..from what i found out.

    Kochkin and Kozyulin are the Topscorers so far. Seems that you can make a big impact with 4-5 good changes.

    If it's a three way tie, you form a minileague of the results between the three. One win each, so it goes to goal difference then goals scored.

    I see. Thanks for the clarification. So some interesting things to come of the games on Wednesday then, though I'm still expecting the Turks to gain promotion.

    Well done Turkey who made it back to Div II by comfortably beating South Africa.

    As it turned out the first round of matches was decisive in determining the final ranking, with only Georgia's defeat of South Africa being close thereafter.

    Big progress by Georgia, hope there are no eligibility issues with their 'new' ethnic Russians. Could see them winning the group next year as DPR Korea should be beatable, assuming they are relegated.

    South Africa will probably host the event so will be stronger and should be favourites.

    Cheers

    Big progress by Georgia, hope there are no eligibility issues with their 'new' ethnic Russians. Could see them winning the group next year as DPR Korea should be beatable, assuming they are relegated.

    Would be nice to see if the ethnic Georgians get a chance to improve at all, or if they will just add more Russians for next year after seeing the results. You look at the scoring and nearly every goal by Georgia has one or two of the Russians involved, and while they are clearly better than anything at the Division III level it is not really going to do anything for Georgian hockey.

    As it seems, every team improved - except Hong-Kong. Georgia made the greatest one - looking even their last year results, this performance is outstanding.
    Bosnia also improved, made a small stepp forward. (I think if UAE not withdroves, they got at least one more point). But if they want to be better, they will need more ice time, a league with at least 4 teams and also tournaments during the season where they can improve (LikeStari Grad did in the Balkan league).

    I just found out all Georgia results have been turned into forfeitures and recorded as 5-0 wins for the opposing team due to player eligibility. Sad they didn't learn from their neighbour's mistake .

    That's really unfortunate for Georgia. Have to wonder what player(s) were ineligible, though I'm sure those new Russians on the team this year are likely candidates.
