    Coming from Slovenia it will be very hard for me to watch the first game against Canada. In today's last preparation game Slo defeated Norway 6-4, but Canada and USA in our group surely are in a different league. Nevertheless I hope for good result for my team. Here are my predictions:

    Denmark vs Czech Republic 1-5
    Danes are unfortunately in a little slump. Hope they will pull themselves together and show better hockey than in preparation games.

    Canada vs Slovenia 5-2

    Russia vs Italy 8-1
    Can't see Italians produce better result than this.

    USA - Latvia 3-2
    Latvia can surprise in this tournament

    CZE- DEN 6-0

    I'm giving Denmark the benefit of doubt here, but only because the Czechs will play with 50% of their capacity.

    RUS - ITA 7-1

    Russia will be playing with 75% steam, but will still rack up a lot of goals.

    CAN - SLO 5-1

    Canada always rebound after a defeat, so forget everything about an upset in this one.

    USA - LAT 5-2

    USA's young guns are hungry, and too fast and skilled for team Latvia.

    Denmark - Czech Republic 1 - 5

    Czech looking strong, but I think Denmark can score at least one as they did last year agaqinst the bigger nations.

    Russia - Italy 7 - 0

    Russia is one of the favourites but dont a lot about italy...

    Canada - Slovenia 5 - 0

    Dont think Slovinia is going to score. 1. Canada has a good defence 2. Good Goaltending

    USA - Latvia 4 - 1

    Well goaltenders have a big role and as I have heard latvia has a got a problem there.

    CZE- DEN 7-0

    Sorry my Danish friends - too much firepower there

    RUS - ITA 6-2

    Russia will still ramp it up. Italy to score late in game.

    CAN - SLO 4-2

    Canada doesn't often come up with blowouts. Closer game than people think. Empty netter for the 4th

    USA - LAT 7-3

    Americans will run and gun and leave Thomas to handle the home front

    Just to let you know that we will make a competition out of this:

    RULES:

    1) You get 5 points if you guess the correct score

    2) In addition you get 1 point because you picked the right winner and two points if you correctly believe the game goes to OT and still pick the right winner. You get 1 point if you correctly believe the game goes to OT, but fail to pick the right winner.

    3) If you don't guess the correct score, you get 2 point if you guess the correct number of goals scored by one of the teams.

    4) If you edit your results after the 1st game has started, you don't get any points.

    It's that simple, and now, please focus...

    Example 1:
    USA - LAT 5-2

    Guess: 6-1

    Points won: 1 (correct winner)

    Example 2:

    Canada - Slovenia 7-1
    Guess: 7-1

    Points won: 5 (for correct result) + 1 for correct winner = 6

    Example 3:

    RUS - ITA 2-3 OT
    Guess: 4-3 OT

    Points won: 1 for result (OT) + 2 (for correct number of goals, ITA) = 3

    Example 4

    RUS-ITA 4-3 OT
    Guess 3-2 OT
    Points won: 2 for correct winner (in OT)

    The official tournament begins and so do the blowouts.

    DEN 2 CZE 6

    CAN 10 SLO 1 (I see the only goal from Kopitar, Canada could easily rank this to 15-1 if they wanted to)

    RUS 11 ITA 3

    USA 7 LAT 0

    Latvia have a small chans of taking points aginst United States...the rest Denmark, Slovenia and Italy are all food to the sharks....

    Team Denmark looks very week, I think it was a big disaster for the danish progress to turn away from Sweden expertise...Switzerland did the same and the progress stopped...The best thing for danish hockey in the long run are to work very close whit Sweden and have Sweden coaches on the national team.

    I don't think Denmark will be that bad, I think it will be close early but CZE will pull away late in the game.

    A opning game are allways a opining game and the cezchs are some times like slöa drängar aginst the smaller teams but the win will be at least 4-5 goals in the end maybe lot more.

    Denmark are on the road back to the Div I , its looks not good at all. I hope Denmark can beat the italiens but I think not, team italy are the weekest team on paper in the championship but they play whit a big heart and have just one game in minde the game aginst Denmark.

    My tip are:

    Czech.Republic vs Denmark 7-1 maybe 7-0

    Canada vs Slovenia 8-1

    Russia vs Italy 9-1

    USA vs Latvia 5-2

    I hope Latvia can do somthing. The problem whit, but allso the good whit team Latvia are that they want to play like the old big red Machine, fast tecnical hockey but they dont have the players to do it. But I Love the team for trying to play the best hockey ever played. Its fun to see Latvia play.

    I see no room for upsets today. Even the vaunted Latvians have no chance against US team playing on its side of the Pond.

    I have it on good authority that Russia will win this game by a score of 2 to 1. A resounding victory if I do say so myself.

    Denmark-Czech 2-5

    Czech has bad coach, but they are too good for Denmark so far.

    Canada-Slovenia 5-3
    Canada always starts slowly.

    Russia-Italy 4-1
    Something tells me it wouldn't be a total blowout. Russia looked very uncomfortable against Italy last year.

    USA-Latvia 5-2
    USA has a good young team this year.

    Due to time difference I'll only watch the two early games tonight. Good for me then that I find those two more interesting than the later games :-)

    Canada will likely thump Slovenia down pretty bad. The home team this year looks very strong, perhaps the strongest name list to enter an IHWC in the last 10 years. Slovenia on the other hand has Anze Kopitar. I look forward to seeing him in a national team game again. Hopefully this game doesn't end up in a 12-0 loss for Slovenia like a few years back against Finland.

    Czech R. is of course the favorite vs. Denmark but I hope to see the Danes put up a good fight, despite the coaching problems.

    Well, in any case, just over 4.5 hours till the puck drops. I can hardly wait.
