    The World Championship feels like a looser price to win this year. It feels very empty after the failure at the Olympics.

    I think Russia will send a strong team but I have a bad feeling about team Sweden.

    Sweden needs a lot of NHL players to be able to fight for the gold but I don´t think so many will show up.

    NHL players ready to go:

    Bergfors(F)
    Steen(F)
    Hedman(D)

    Maybe ready to go:

    Enström(D)
    Strĺlman(D)
    Eriksson(F)
    Hörnqvist(F)
    Gustavsson(G)

    The big problem are the weak Sweden team out side NHL, they have nothing to put up in the EHT so team Sweden needs its NHL players.

    The dream would be to see the Red Wings players on the team. But its a long shoot.

    I don't know about Russia being so good. be without many Olympic NHLers-
    all 3 goalies won't be there Varlamov's and Nabokov's teams are in 1st place for there conference and Bryzgalov's team is in 4
    they also be without Defenceman - Gonchar and most likely Volchenkov and Andrei Markov
    And Forwards- Ovechkin, Semin, Kovalchuk, Malkin and Datsyuk who are all important players.
    but they still have a chance to win of course they will most likely have Afinogenov and all the KHLers will be there but are missing big NHL players unless some of there teams come out with early playoff exits it might change the story

    The trend is clear...North America are becoming more and more dominant in world hockey....Sweden and Russia can for the moment keep up good if we look to the top players and prospects but Czech.Republic, Finland and Slovakia will have a hard time.

    The big problem for Sweden is the big gap between the players in NHL and the players left in Europe. Sweden can no longer build a strong team with the left overs in Europe. It was four players to many from Europe in the Sweden Olympic team. The fact is Sweden have all its top 30 players in NHL.

    And its not good at all to have a coach like Bengt-Ĺke, he have shown very little interest for NHL, and he have not been so updated with the new Sweden players in the league.

    And l think some of the big players maybe will refuse to play in the World Championship to his lack of coaching skills and maybe also for they feel rejected. Hedberg is maybe the number one Sweden goaltender in the NHL this year but he was not even on the first Olympic-list so l think he is lost for the IHWC.

    The best thing have been to start fresh in the IHWC with Mĺrts. He have great knowledge about the new upcoming Sweden players and he can start to build a new team for the 2014 Olympics.

    Listened to it a few times. The first time I hated it, Euro dance never liked it. However, the more you listen to it the more it becomes catchy. It really fits the hockey game and the purpose is for the fans to get involved. There's a few phrases for the fans to get into it.

    Coca-Cola, for many years considered being the most valuable and one of the most renowned brands of the world, is an "Official Partner of the 2010 IIHF

    World Championship". Furthermore, a partnership with the German Ice Hockey Federation (DEB) has also been concluded.

    Coca-Cola, one of the great partners for sports and a supporter of Olympic Games since 1928, will supply many important areas of the World Championship organization with non-alcoholic refreshment drinks. In addition, Coca-Cola will utilize their tremendous presence in the market in order to support the advertising for the 2010 IIHF World Championship proactively.

    "It makes us very proud that a world brand like Coca-Cola is giving their commitment to the sport of Ice Hockey in Germany. This partnership is very important for us as everyone can imagine the amounts of refreshment drinks that are need to quench the thirst of all the people involved during an IIHF World Championship in an environment of 56 games. Coca-Cola is offering their entire product range to us and will also strongly support our World Championship advertising with manifold measures" commented Franz Reindl, General Secretary of the 2010 IIHF World Championship and the DEB's Director of Sports, on the conclusion of the partnership.

    .... who wants to drink Coke?

    The Championship webshop is now open. Most of the lower ranked team have slight modifications to their jerseys. Once again it pisses me off that the merchandiser can't get Latvia's flag right. They simply re-coloured the Austrian flag, instead of putting in the two minutes to get the proportions right. Is it really that hard to do things properly?

    Jaromir Jagr anounced he would to play on IHWC in Germany.
    Bo gdyby, ach gdyby wszystko na tym świecie dało się rostrzygać na lodowiskach, w trzech tercjach, kijem i krążkiem, to nie tylko wszak kanadyjskim zawodowcom z NHL, nie tylko wiarołomnym antysocjalistycznym Czechom, ale całemu światu, ba, nawet duszmanom z Pandższiru, Heratu i Kandaharu spuściłaby tęgi a druzgocący wpierdol hokejowa reprezentacja ZSRR, a w jej składzie Ragulin, Fetisow, Kasatonow oraz, bladź, Kapustin, Golikow i Malcew.

    About Sweden being weak outside NHL: BS. Almost every year we go to medal round with very few NHL:ers. For me Sweden has same chance for gold as Russia and Canada. Actually the OF loss in Olympics is Sweden's worst result in many years. Last year we took bronze. Why can't we do better this year?? Because the results in EHT?? The EHT is for BĹG to test new players in the team. It means nothing.

    Okay now, here's the first Team Sweden camp roster:


    Goalies: Anders Lindbäck, Timrĺ.
    Mattias Modig, Luleĺ.

    Defenders: Johan Fransson, Luleĺ
    Mattias Karlsson, Timrĺ

    Forwards: Jonas Andersson, Dynamo Minsk
    Jonathan Granström, Brynäs
    Johan Harju, Dynamo Moskva
    Fredrik Hynning, Timrĺ
    Anton Lander, Timrĺ
    Joakim Lindström, Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod.
    Linus Omark, Dynamo Moskva
    Magnus Pääjärvi Svensson
    Daniel Widing, Davos

    It's great to see Paajarvi and Lander there but where is Jacob Markstrom???? Modig over Markstrom?

    For instance, a March 24 TSN.ca article about Crosby's rivalry with Alexander Ovechkin proclaimed that the “score” was now “Sid 2, Ovi 0.” Why? “With a gold medal-winning performance at last month's Winter Olympics in Vancouver paired with a Stanley Cup ring earned last season, Sidney Crosby holds a two-title advantage over his Russian rival Alexander Ovechkin.”

    Of course, a quick refresher on the criteria for admission to the IIHF's Triple Gold Club would reveal that, in fact, the “score” is now “Sid 2, Ovie 1.” That's because Ovechkin won gold at the 2008 IIHF World Championship when Russia beat Canada 5-4 in the final in Quebec City; Crosby has yet to capture a world title.

    Still, the article is reflective of the mindset of many Canadian hockey journalists and fans.
    The mindset is reflective of journalists and fans? Sounds like a pigeon hole.

    Moreover, is it even objectionable to uses the World Hockey Championship in a tournament both Ovechkin and Crosby attend on a chance they're out of the playoffs in time to be on the roster. Furthermore, he compares a team where Sid wasn't even on Canada's team.

    It IIHF author almost screams at the publicity and over hype they give their tournaments. Especially after showcasing that the organization he/she works for is incompetent at running a league after folding it it's first season, losing the trust of European power house leagues and having little clout in negotiations deals.

    He writes that it's a reflective mindset of journalists and fans? I wonder how they perceive themselves, because I can tell that many don't think much of the IIHF on these boards. And that's something I learned through reading people's comments.

    Old-time veterans Sorokins and Lavins won't play for Latvia this year.

    Also, there's a big possibility that Skrastins might miss the tournament, although Dallas won't make the playoffs.

    Slovak fans have had a dilemma over the last days: Who to cheer against in the Eastern conference of the NHL? Rangers (Gaborik) ? Habs (Halak) ? Or Bruins (Chara) ? It was an even bigger dilemma considering that we had no idea whether they would come to WHC if they don´t make it to the play-offs or don´t reach round 2. Looks like Peter Bondra decided to help us a little with our dilemma, telling the SZLH website that Chara has confirmed he will play in the WHC if available. Doesn´t look like the Bruins will be getting much Slovak fans support in the comming days.

    I´m really positively surprised, considering that Chara needs a surgery for his finger after the season, but it will be great if he will come also because he as the captain does seem to be the right player to be there to "direct" a generation change.

    I´m also expecting SZLH to release a first roster or something as Glen Hanlon is comming to SVK on April 13th to start the training camp.

    There is also a chance that all of them will make playoffs with their teams but I don't believe so.
    Another two are Budaj and Vinovsky(Colorado has good chances for playoffs while Anaheim's chances are theoretical).

    Slovakia is really unlucky for this championship.They'll only have one sure NHL-er from the Olympic roster(Meszaros) and five doubtful(Gaborik, Chara, Halak, Budaj, Visnovsky).
    All others (Sekera, Hossa, Demitra, Handzus, Satan, Jurcina and Kopecky) are already in playoffs with their teams.

    Visnovsky already said he won´t be playing in Germany. With Budaj, there also is Marek Svatos, though he has a horrible season currently. Satan plays with Chara, so he hasn´t clinched the play-offs yet. Demitra said he wouldn´t play even if the Canucks don´t make it past round 1 due to his family, his wife has been seriously ill recently.

    Anyway, it´s a well known fact that we will be playing with an European , mainly KHL team in the WHC, it´s like that even in non-Olympic seasons nowadays, yet alone an Olympic one. So getting at least such news as with Chara is pretty great.

    We are supposed to play with a younger team- i.e. young players from the AHL, Slovak league, Finland etc., but they do need some mentors at least.

    It doesn´t matter much anyway, from our point of vie the 2010 WHC, where we can´t get relegated anyway could be as well named "Glen Hanlon´s getting to know ya" party before our big WHC on home soil in 2011.

    In a while I will post the first roster that is meeting today, it is more of a "development camp" with assistant coaches rather than a WHC camp and althoguh Tatar is not included there, the article in which it was released also says that :"Doplňme, že šancu v príprave má dostať kmeňový hráč Detroitu Red Wings Tomáš Tatar." - "Let´s add that Tomas Tatar will get a chance in the WHC preparations." So yep, the real first camp starts on April 13th, it´s around the time that AHL regular season will end, so he might already be there. i think he´s chances to make the team are pretty big if he plays anything like last year, he did impress already back then. Plus both Hanlon and Bondra have been following Slovak AHL players lately.

    Btw another great news is that Gaborik also will come if available according to Hospodárske Noviny.
    Daddy Gáborík says that Marián wants a medal pretty hard. :D :D

    I will be cheering pretty hard for the Flyers in the comming days despite the fact that I don´t like them.

    Latvia Latvia announces list of candidates

    Goalies: Edgars Masaļskis („Dinamo Rīga”), Nauris Enkuzens („Dinamo/Juniors”), Mārtiņš Raitums („Hull Stingrays”, GB), Edgars Lūsiņš („Fischtown Pinguins”, GER)

    Defense: Jānis Andersons (“Ocelari”, CZE), Guntis Galviņš („Dinamo Rīga”), Oskars Cibuļskis („Dinamo/Juniors”), Aleksandrs Jerofejevs (“Metallurg”, Novokuzneck, RUS), Georgijs Pujacs („Sibir”, Novosibirsk, RUS), Jēkabs Rēdlihs („Dinamo Rīga”), Krišjānis Rēdlihs („Dinamo Rīga”), Arvīds Reķis (“Grizzly Adams”, GER), Oļegs Sorokins („Dinamo Rīga”), Kristaps Sotnieks („Dinamo Rīga”), Oskars Bārtulis (“Philadelphia Flyers”, USA), Artūrs Kulda (“Chicago Wolves”, USA).

    Forwards: Ģirts Ankipāns („Dinamo Rīga”), Miķelis Rēdlihs („Dinamo Riga”), Armands Bērziņš („Dinamo Rīga”), Viktors Bļinovs (“Metallurg”, Zhlobin, BLR), Roberts Bukarts („Dinamo Rīga”), Mārtiņš Cipulis („Dinamo Rīga”), Ronalds Cinks („Dinamo/Juniors”), Lauris Dārziņš („Dinamo Rīga”), Kaspars Daugaviņš (“Binghamton Senators”, USA), Mārtiņš Karsums („Dinamo Rīga”), Gints Meija („Dinamo Rīga”), Aleksandrs Ņiživijs („Dinamo Rīga”), Sergejs Pečura („Krilja Sovetov”, RUS), Jānis Sprukts („Dinamo Rīga”), Aleksejs Širokovs („Amur”, RUS), Herberts Vasiļjevs (“Krefeld Pinguine”, GER), Andris Džeriņš („Dinamo Rīga”), Juris Štāls („Quad City Mallards”, USA), Jekimovs Roberts („Jokipojat”, FIN), Kaspars Saulietis („Benzina Litvinov”, CZE), Elviss Želubovskis („Ozolnieki/MONARCH”).

    The biggest loss this year would be the absence of Skrastins and Lavins in defense. Also all is not clear with Sorokins since he has stated that he is not willing to go to championships as a 5th or 6th defender on the team. Also Bartulis and Kulda might be involved in play-offs during the championships. There is also going to be a tough fight about the second and third goalie spot. Masalkis is undoubtedly nr.1. The problem again this time will be the absence of good center forwards as Sprukts is the only one who is really good. Vasiljevs will play center again I guess, so there are 2 spots left. Daugavins might be played as center as we saw it in Olimpics and other one I guess would be Sirokovs thus leaving out Berzins who had a terrible season. The absence of only Latvian forward in NHL Ivanans isn't that surprising. Overall I think we are going to see some new faces on the team.

    Any reason Mustukovs isn't a candidate? I can't find anything about an injury and find it odd that the 3rd goalie from the Olympic team wouldn't at least have a shot on the WC team.

    Yeah I forgot to write about that. After the friendly games in Germany Znaroks was so displeased with his performance that he even wanted to send him home and take Enkuzens to Olympics, but since rules didn't allow that Mustukovs was the third goalie. And he hasn't got any real game experience this year. Even in Latvian championships finals Dinamo Juniors starting goalie in all of the games was Enkuzens and Mustukovs didn't play a single game. So he apparently was cut from the team even without trying him out. Looks like Mustukovs won't be in Dinamo system next year and he should better start looking for a different club.

    Also Naumovs isn't on the list but thats not that surprising. A 40 year old goalie without a club and almost without any game experience this season. It's better to take some young guys.

    Dang, Mustukovs seemed to be the pick for the future when he played for HK Riga 2000 and then Dinamo Juniors but it seems as if he has either regressed or not improved enough and is being passed up and is now just another player out there. Sad to see but it happens.

    Belarus will have a new coach in Germany: today Federation appointed SKA St. Petersburg assistant coach and former Dynamo Minsk player Eduard Zankovets as new head coach. It's the first time Zankovets works as head coach.

    Andrei Gusov, Alexander Andrievsky and Vladimir Tsyplakov will be the assistant coaches

    Any word on who the goalies for Russia will be? I'm hoping for Gelashvili, Koshechkin and Bobrovsky, though there are many quality russian keepers to chose from in the KHL. From my point of view, it's very good that a lot of russians are caught up in the NHL play-offs, the more guys from the KHL, the merrier.

    There is also Eremenko as a good goalie choice.
    It's good to see KHL-ers but it would be better if there would be just one great NHL player like last year were Kovalchuk, Afinogenov and Frolov.This year it's probably gonna be just Afinogenov.
    But many oppponents also had a lot of players in NHL playoffs so it would be really interesting championship.

    Davide, any news about Vitali Kolesnik and Nik Antropov? About Antropov of course if Atlanta won't make a play-offs...
    Bo gdyby, ach gdyby wszystko na tym świecie dało się rostrzygać na lodowiskach, w trzech tercjach, kijem i krążkiem, to nie tylko wszak kanadyjskim zawodowcom z NHL, nie tylko wiarołomnym antysocjalistycznym Czechom, ale całemu światu, ba, nawet duszmanom z Pandższiru, Heratu i Kandaharu spuściłaby tęgi a druzgocący wpierdol hokejowa reprezentacja ZSRR, a w jej składzie Ragulin, Fetisow, Kasatonow oraz, bladź, Kapustin, Golikow i Malcew.

    No news about Kolesnik. On Antropov, during a press conference on april 2, national team coach Andrei Shayan said: "We have an agreement with Nikolai, he will join us at training camp if Atlanta doesn't qualify for playoffs or after the first phase if Thrashers will exit after 1st round of playoffs"
    In same press conference Shayan said he doubt Fedor Polishchuk will play in Germany: "he joined us but he's got a very serious injury"

    Antropov is out

    a definitive word about Nik Antropov partecipation at IHWC come today from Atlanta from coach John Anderson:

    "Officially add Nik Antropov to the list of injured players. In fact, he won’t play the final two games of the season. He’s played through an injury all year. He’s going to be looked at by our doctors and see what his prognosis is for the summer. We’ll find out more next week. He did have a hip injury. He would take a practice off each week"

    Miroslav Zálešák (HK36 Skalica/SVK) 02.01.1980
    Ivan Čiernik (Kölner Haie/DEL) 30.10.1977
    Roman Tománek (HC 05 B. Bystrica/SVK) 28.01.1986

    Radoslav Tybor (Dukla Trenčín/SVK) 23.11.1989
    Richard Pánik (Norfolk Admirals/AHL) 07.20.1991

    I´m really surprised, I did not expect that many of these players would actually get a shot in exhibition games, that´s unusual, though I gotta say I like it. Richard Lintner and Ivan Čiernik must feel pretty old though.

    I'm dieing to see Kazakhstan's roster. I wish that they become an established elite division team, because I think it is vital to have some success in order to further increase popularityhockey in Kazakhstan.

    It seems that the U18 Division I WHC is not the only hockey that might get influenced by the Polish tragedy. There will be a day of national mourning in the Czech republic (alongside of Slovakia and Hungary) on the day of Mr. Kaczyński´s funeral, which is currently expected to be held on next Saturday. It is possible that because of this the game between Czech republic and Slovakia sheduled on 17th of April in Prostějov. Same goes for Czech Extraliga finals btw.
