    ROM-SRB comparision

    The fact that both the Romanian and Serbian team based on MOL Liga players gives the opportunity for some pre-tournament comparison of the two.

    On the press conference on Sunday, 2. April, the coaches and players of the Romanian team said that their goal is to win the group and get promoted to the div I B. However, this is a pretty decimated Romanian team with many-many missing players. Most of those who reached the final spot in the roster are 3rd or 4th linerS and mediocre players in MOL Liga, some of them have usually only some shifts on the ice. The best stats have Roberto Gliga, but none of his linemates are in the roster. I simply do not see who will score goals and who will assist the goalscorers.

    The Serbian team wants to have a medal again, and they will try everything to win the group and promote - said the website of the federation. Loooking at their roster I think they might be a real threat for the promotion dreams of the Romanians. They have some more productive players in their roster, and in HK Beograd many of them were playing in the 1st or 2nd line. Moreover, they will have as an addition to the MOL Liga players' core Popravka, Sretovic, Bibic, Milovanovic and Lukovic, all of them may be an impact player on this level.

    I would say, with Tőke in the net Romania have a better goalie than the Serbs, and maybe they are more disciplined. But I see more offensive potential in the Serbian team. It will be interesting which of the two teams will be the better on Tuesday evening. Anyway, there are other opponents as well in the tournament, and I would not say that none of them can be compared with these two teams.

    MOL Liga players cumulative stats in the league:

    ROM: 17 players, 36G 72A 108P -140 +/-
    SRB: 13 players, 50G 78A 128P -187 +/-

    What is wrong with Romanian team. Why they always missing so many players in recent years?
    What is the problem with them?
    A-light-in-the-dark: Sofia Bulgaria, Skopje Macedonia, Sarajevo & Pristina :)

    The powerhouse of the Romanian hockey in the past one and a half decade was the ethnic Hungarian area of the country. Every teams signed players from there (Galati for example had 12 players in the past season from there and 10 of them were impact players - compare it with the 12 ethnic Romanian players, with a maximum of 4 impact players among them) but many of these players refuse to play for the Romanian national team. Many of them have a Hungarian passport as well and want to play in the Hungarian national team.

    This also answers why Csíkszereda (M. Ciuc) was going down recently - they were not able to keep their players who usually signed for Brasov, Galati or went to Hungary.

    For me, result against Australia is not so big suprise. Last game of HK Beograd was before 2 monts, so the team was without games(4 games in funny domestic championship i dont count). The main frame in MOL league was the foreign players with 3-4 domestic players.
    After tomorrow game against Romania and one day of rest, expecting much better games from Serbia, i hope.

    Romania is huge favorite on this Champioship.

    Spain without Ander Alcaine defending the goal line is totally lost... Another upset vs Belgium, a team that they defeated in the last 5 times they faced in the IIHF world championships.

    Congrats to Romania. They won the Balkan battle without getting to sweaty. They were superior and Serbian goal actually didn't affect the game much expect for the last couple of minutes of the second period.

    The Serbian wishes of trying to surprise the hosts at this years WC showed to be only dreams. This team lacks of lot the way they are playing right now and they were second or even third on the puck thru most of the game.
    My opinion though, is that Serbia actually have more potential than this and nevermind how the WC ends the Serbian federation must analyse why the players look so tired, heavy and slow after a season where most of the players had the privilege to play professional hockey.
    And of course the federation must analyse themselves. This unnecesarry "confusion" about the players contracts and everything that happened in the national play-offs and right before the preperations for the WC might had negative effect on the NT.

    However: hats off for Romania. They will win the tournament I'm sure.

    Romania shut out by Iceland, which gives Australia a decent chance now to keep on track to earn a second consecutive promotion. While Spain looks terrible this year, kind of surprised by them.

    I watched all games so far and despite great game and win by Iceland, I wouldn't discount Australians. Sure, Romanians are favourite, but they need to be very careful, Australia is good at least as Iceland...
