    IIHF 2018 IIHF World Championships

    Some early news about Team Canada at the upcoming World Championships: It appears that Connor McDavid and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will play for Canada. If that is the case, that is wonderful news for Canadian fans.

    Good news but not surprising really.
    Look for a higher percentage than normal of star players saying yes to playing at the Worlds.

    So, at least according to TSN, Barzal and Drouin would like to play if asked. Along with McDavid & RNH thats the start of a reasonable offense. Not sure who else is available or attractive...nobody else is particularly exciting on the Coyotes, Canucks, Habs, Isles, Sabres.
    I always like Ryan O.Reilly of course & Monahan if he is interested. Hopefully a decent squad.

    It'll be interesting to see McDavid play on larger ice, that's for sure

    Canada looks OK. Goalie maybe the weak link although I don't know much about the guy. Playing in Arizona must be tough.

    I don't think Kuemper will be the number one keeper. I a sure Canada is waiting to see who gets eliminated in the NHL playoffs before naming another keeper. I hope it isn't Dubnyk, he just isn't playing that well.

    AUT got relegated in the last 6 IHWC participations since 2005, on the last two occasions (2013 and 2015) the team ended up with the record number of points for a team getting relegated (5), so one can say that hockey god wasn't really on the Austrians' side.
    Avoiding relegation will likely need the assistance from the hockey god now as the seeding of the groups put Austria in the one with the unrelegatable Slovaks (not that they are not heavy favorites to end up ahead of Team AUT anyway but still not optimal for us). The teams to beat are most likely France and Belarus, both not out of reach in general as plenty of friendlies suggest but in the last IHWCs it just didn't work out. Scheduling favors AUT in the game vs. FRA as for the French it is a back-to-back game while Austria has a rest day inbetween but against BLR it is the other way round.

    Compared to IHWC 2015 Austria probably has more skill on the team due to the higher profile youngsters of Lukas Haudum (struggled a bit in SEL but nevertheless) and Dominik Zwerger (great first senior season in NLA) but defense is shallow as ever. Dominique Heinrich as supposed key player was quite unstable in the EBEL play-offs one can only hope that Stefan Ulmer, the other D supposed to orchestrate plays is in top shape. The remaining D-men are mostly role players in their EBEL teams with limited special team (esp PP) ice time. Goaltending is an issue too, Bernhard Starkbaum is the clear #1 and wasn't exactly brilliant in the EBEL play-offs. David Madlener was okish in the prep games I saw (esp vs. SLO) and David Kickert was very shaky against KAZ.

    As long as one of the 'tenders is OK this team should do alright. Top 5 D are pretty good and should be enough offense.

    This is an unusually young Finnish team. It has only four players who are older than thirty. The average age is around 25 years. It is also very inexperienced squad. Ten players will dress for their first major international tournament.

    But its got some sharp teeth. The four leading forwards, Rantanen, Granlund, Aho and Teräväinen make up four out of six leading Finnish NHL scorers this season. Only Aleksander Barkov and Patrik Laine are missing. Together with the fifth NHL forward, Kasperi Kapanen, they scored 289 points in the NHL this season. It's not every day Finland can boast with this kind of firepower, even in a best-on-best. Of course, they still hold no candle to Canada, led by McDavid himself, or impressively NHL-stacked Sweden, but it's still very good for us Finns, who have achieved some rather mean feats with lesser rosters.

    And the team doesn't lack skill behind the top shelf NHLers either. In fact, besides being unusually young and unusually inexperienced, it's unusually skilled too, at least when compared to the rosters Finnish coaches usually prefer. There are only a couple of typical "grinder" forwards, while the rest are better known for their prowess in the offensive end of the rink. Of course, being the leading scorer in Liiga does not mean being one of the leading scorers in a tournament like this, but it is still a bold statement from the management. This will be the farewell tournament of our current coach Lauri Marjamäki, and apparently he's figured he's got nothing to lose. Of course, going all in on offense like this can backfire royally, but if it does, at least we can expect them to bow out in a spectacular manner.

    The Danish roster looks very good, on home ice it's time to crack the play-off stage for the red-white I'd say.

    Hoping for it.

    Tonight's game against Germany will go a long way in deciding whether a spot in the quarterfinals is realistic or not.

    Yeah, both teams are contenders for a top 4 spot in the group. Tight game, Germans seem to have crried on the momentum from the Olympics. Looks like OT...good :D

    Not for the nerves ;)

    Close as always between the two countries (the last four games at the IHWC have been one-goal games and three of them have gone into OT/SO) , but Denmark got the start to the tournament it wanted and in a sense also needed.

    There have been plenty of important games for Denmark in its time in the top division (mostly relegation matches), still yesterday’s opener is probably the one with the most pressure to deliver a good result and the Danish players handled it well.

    And when needed our top players stepped up.

    Still some things that need to be improved, however having already 2 points on the board is important as the coming games the USA,Canada & Finland likely won’t yield much.

    Who knows, where I can find the Roster and Statistics on the new IIHF Tournament page in PDF? I guess, this is not available.... In my opinion, once again the IIHF is making something "new", which not really makes sense.... I don't like this new stile...

    Thanks for helping in advance

    Canada stays consistent at the World's....mediocre goaltending & stink at the shoot-out. USA has some offense this year.

    Yeah the goaltending was spotty at best and we still suck at shoot outs.
    The fact that McDavid was unavailable for the shootout because of his penalty bites.
    But...two gold and a silver the last three years for Canada despite all that.
    The Americans, though, have a team that can do damage, especially if they continue to get the goaltending.

    Fairly good start for Austria into the tournament with getting a point against the Swiss. Switzerland was the better team especially through the first half of the game but very good goaltending by Bernhard Starkbaum limite the eficit to 2-0. AUT clawed their way back into the game tying it and going into OT. On a bad line change by AUT the Swiss finished it off. Ugly sidenote to the game as Switzerlands Sven Andrighetto sends AUT d-man Steven Strong into a monthslong break with a dirty kneeing foul. Andrighetto got sent off with a MP but no further suspension handed out (wtf?).

    Today AUT is up against Russia, in my view the target must be to get away with a limited defeat and save aas much energy as possible for the next games.

    I still think it’s too early to write off Germany.

    There are plenty of games left to play and the deciding factor will likely be how the two teams in the question perform against Latvia (that also remains in the running for a spot in the quarterfinals), Norway & Korea and those games have yet to be played.

    It could turn out to be a vital point.

    I suppose the key matchup for Austria is still the one against France, but with the way Belarus looked yesterday getting points on Saturday might not be out of the question.

    Canada blows out Korea 10-0. No surprise here. They are building chemistry and working on the weaknesses that plagued them against the USA. Very impressed with Jost today.

    Korea has had a really rough start. Can they pick up any momentum?

    They play Latvia next, so if they do pick up some momentum, this would be where they'd likely do it
