    Does anyone know where From is and what is the story with him? I can’t figure out if he’s with Rockford or not?
    He’s a center and since they also (reportedly) had the option of adding Joachim Blichfeld, who’s a winger but declined to use that option a guess would that center is the position they plan to use True.

    Making the team that actually is going to play is perhaps a longshot, but he could still be named to the final roster as a “reserve” like Aagaard and From were two years ago.

    Nevertheless it’s going to be very interesting to see what he can do at this level.

    Definitely one of the more promising prospects in the Danish talent pool.

    Update:

    Alexander True's San Jose Barracuda has qualified for the AHL playoffs, so remains to be seen when or if he'll be available to play for Denmark.

    As for From no idea, but it’s a bit odd that he’s yet to play a game for Rockford.

    You could argue that he might as well could have been at the team Denmark camp then (don’t see any reason why the coaching staff wouldn’t have named him to the roster).

    A good showing by Denmark and a better performance than usual at this stage of training camp. The stronger and more effective team won, but there were more positives than negatives for the Danish team.

    Too bad we don’t get to see True in the games up to WC’s but for his development it’s probably better to experience the AHL Play Off.

    Very odd with Mathias From. At least we have plenty of offensive power from top European leagues in Storm, Hardt, Christensen and Nicolas Jensen.

    Regarding the games versus Sweden it was exciting to see how we were able protect the puck and cycle it around in offensive zone. Regin and Jensen to be fit. Bjorkstrans, Poulsen and Madsen are other forwards to mention.
    On the flip side - our defensive zone play lacked discipline which isn’t exactly a new thing under Karlsson. Larsen looked very average, he needs reach a whole other level. Emil Kristensen looked pretty solid. I think he’s sure to take one of the two last D-spots.

    Looks like Frederik Andersen could be in for an early Stanley Cup exit. Will be interesting to follow.

    It'ss and From could at least have provided some offensive depth to the team.

    He obviously has struggled this season, still his production did pick up in the Allsvenskan Playoffs and the IHWC is in a sense a “new season”.

    As for the defence…well at least they are pretty consistent since it’s the same year after year in regards to these pre-tournament games but they usually step up when needed.

    Even if Toronto is eliminated in the first round Andersen’s participation is (IMO) rather doubtful. He has played a lot of games this season so he or Maple Leafs’ management might be inclined to call it a season. But guess we just have to wait and see.

    Two hard fought wins where Denmark seemed clinical and smart. I saw both games and must say that although the teams D wasn’t tested the same way as against Sweden it looked more solid. Good goalie performances - especially yesterday.
    It will be interesting with the addition of Frans Nielsen Tuesday. I just can’t see who he will be paired with? Any ideas? Madsen might be one of them though.
    Now where it seems unlikely we get any NHL wings I really think it’s a mistake not to invite From (despite we don’t know his whereabouts and his poor season). We could use some speed and creativity in our wings as it is now IMO.
    Strong and deep team overall though.

    Good to hear.

    Belarus is of the countries we usually use as sort of a benchmark (much like the upcoming match against Germany is, although I hope that certain key players will be giving a maintenance day just to play it safe) so always positive to get a couple of wins.

    Who’s Nielsen going to play with…interesting question.

    We got plenty of wingers to fill out the 3rd and 4th line (Madsen, Poulsen, P. Bjorkstrand, Russell and Bau(if he’s cleared to play)), but obviously lack some alternatives offensively.

    Karlsson has hinted that Mads Christensen will play with Regin & Jensen and might be a bit risky to break up the line of Hardt, Jensen and Storm. (If not perhaps let Storm and/or Hardt play with Nielsen and find a winger for a Madsen-Jensen Line.)

    So for the “lack” of better options, my guess would also be Madsen to be one of the wingers on Nielsen’s line.

    As for the opposite wing (and assuming Nielsen will be the lone NHL forward on the roster) P. Bjorkstrand with his speed could be an option.

    Guess you can say that we are one NHL winger short

    It sure is a benchmark, and luckily it looked good. Solid goaltending, D and great finishing. Looks solid. With the addition of Frans Nielsen it looks like we are going to have two very even scoring lines. I don't recall having that before. I look forward seeing how that will work out.

    It's funny with Storm. It seems that everytime he's in a line surrounded by scorers and very offensively skilled players we don't seem to see the best of him. Place him in a 3rd line surrounded by grinders og energy players he seems to excel.

    Even though Patrick Russell is perfect for a 3rd and 4th line I have a feeling he might be teamed up with Nielsen because of his pace, scoring touch (he's been on a hot streak lately) and North Amerincan playstyle. Perhaps with Morten Madsen, but we might lack some creativity then?

    I've never seen P. Bjorkstrand in a scoring line in a World Championships. I have a hard time imagining he can fill that role, but perhaps. The games versus Sweden he looked very pacey and in a good shape. Forward constellations so far would look like this if I were Janne Karlsson.

    N. Jensen - Regin - Christensen
    Madsen - Nielsen - Russell
    Storm - J. Jensen - Hardt
    Bjorkstrand- Jakobsen - M. Poulsen

    I hope Mathias Bau Hansen will join the roster soon. We could use his size and checking.

    I hope Mathias Bau Hansen will join the roster soon. We could use his size and checking.
    It would be interesting to see Russell or a Bau Hansen get the chance to play with Nielsen. Jesper Duus did mention in the press release for today’s roster that Hansen perhaps could play a bigger role this year (same could be said about Russell) and he has shown some offensive potential in his time in the Danish Elite League, but obviously there’s a significant difference between the level of play in Denmark and at the international level.

    Storm hopefully will stay wth Hardt and Jensen, it’s a line that works and better to play it safe instead of too much late line juggling.

    And agree Bjorkstrand is better suited to play a more defensive role, but line chemistry is not exactly an exact science and playing with Nielsen, could perhaps help elevate the former’s offensive game.

    That could of course also be said about several of the other wingers on the roster, which only leads us back to initial issue, we are one proven scoring winger short

    The lines you list looks like a very good projection, only change I would make is that (as you note) Bau should have a spot in the lineup.

    Come on guys. Are you serious? To place the best player in third line? I think Nielsen will play with Storm and Hardt. Jesper Jensen will center Bjorkstrand and Madsen. If Frederik Andersen joins the roster it could certainly be good, but I still think we need some high end fire power. If things do not work out with the above mentioned lines I also believe that Karlsson will play Regin as winger with NJ and Nielsen as center. Precisely to get that high end line.
