WC Roster 2013
 
... Since I successfully derailed the thread about the match against Finland we might as well get it started.
Schedule
  • Sat, may 4th: vs Canada
  • Sun, may 5th: vs Norway
  • Tue, may 7th: vs Slovenia
  • Thu, may 9th: vs. Czech Republic
  • Sat, may 11th: vs. Switzerland
  • Mon, may 13th: vs. Belarus
  • Tue, may 14th: vs. Sweden




Quarterfinals: Top 4 in each of the two groups
Relegation: "The overall bottom ranked two teams" – I interpret this as the two nations (regardless of groups) with the least points goes down.

The NHL playoffs begins the May 1st. So no early PO-exit reinforcement. The NHL season ends on the 27th April so the guys will have to fly in with short notice.
The AHL playoffs begins on April 21st. The first round is a best-of-five series that could be over in three games. I guess in time for Nicklas Jensen or Frederik Andersen to join Team Denmark if it should become relevant.

Jevo 04-07-2013 07:26 PM

I doubt we see Nicklas Jensen and Frederik Andersen on the team even if their AHL teams doesn't make the playoffs. I would assume that they would be called up as black aces during the parents clubs play-off run.

BalticWarrior 04-08-2013 03:59 AM

It must be terrible for Danish fans having so much quality players in NHL and them not beeing available for Worlds.

Bank 04-08-2013 08:30 AM

Yeah don't know why they didn't follow the NHL'ers when I made the doubtful box. Corrected.

TheFatOne 04-11-2013 02:22 PM

Can Slava Truhno play for Denmark? He is a very good player.

Bank 04-11-2013 05:30 PM

Hasn't got a Danish passport as far as I'm informed. Played some U18 WC for Russia after leaving Denmark so I guess it's not likely. Dunno if it's possible actually.

AFAIK, not impossible, but very unlikely at this point.

1) He would have to obtain a Danish passport. Given that he grew up in Denmark and has strong ties to the country, then maybe he can apply for one after living in Denmark for two years. He could get around this by playing for Malm÷ or R÷gle while living in Denmark. Starkov was able to apply while living in Gothenburg, but only because he was getting an education at the Fr÷lunda hockey high school.

2) IIHF rules states that he has to play in the Danish league for 4 years before he is able to switch nationalities in the eyes of the IIHF. That is not likely to happen, so he would need an IIHF exception from this rule.

3) He has played in the U18 WC for Russia - an official IIHF sanctioned tournament - so he'd need an exception from this rule as well to be able to make the switch.

William Nylander was able to get an exception from the 4-year rule, so it is not impossible. Nylander had not played for another national team though, so that definitely complicates matters. Like Nylander, Trukhno has obvious ties to the country he'd be switching to, that is the kind of thing the IIHF would be looking for if they were asked to rule on the matter.

Fun fact: Trukhno actually received personal financial support from Team Denmark before deciding to play for Russia at the U18 World Champs...

One last thing: I haven't heard anything from Trukhno stating that he would be interested in representing Denmark.

Justinov 04-13-2013 08:54 AM

In the warm up games against Russia (bringing a good KHL team) Denmark started with a reasonable defeat of 0-3.

Russian goals: Mikhail Glukhov (2) & Alexander Pankov from Atlant Mytishchi & Salavat Yulaev Ufa.

So hopefully they can stay tight, so they don't get run over in the second game today as they did in the second game against Finland.

PS: Great thread Bank!

Justinov 04-14-2013 05:47 AM

A huge win for the danish hockey team. Winning 3-2 in OT in the second match against a Russian KHL team. It is our first win ever against Russia in an official match.

Goalscorers:
0-1: Yegor Averin (Lokomotiv Yaroslavl); 1-1: Frederik Storm (Malm÷); 2-1: Morten Poulsen (Oskarshamn); 2-2: Evgeny Dadonov (Donbass Donetsk); 3-2 (OT): Morten Madsen (Hamburg Freezers).
Spectators: 1.937

So things are starting to look more bright for the WC.

I don't know, in all honesty I really want us to give Norway a good, CLEAR spanking first to really show who's boss! :D

But I agree, the X matches against Russia, have given a little more hope..
It all depends on our NA guys, which as of now does not look good :(

Even Freddie Andersens team is making a crazy run for the PO's.

So to be 100% honest, im stille betting on a huge fight to stay up, which is going to be very difficult.

Bank 04-15-2013 05:00 AM

Well as Jevo stated he would have been properly have served as a black aces for Anaheim anyway...

Actually don't know if Team Denmark should hope for Dallas or Phoenix to fail(If only one of them is to miss the PO). Philip Larsen is usually VERY important due him being the only NHL-caliber D-man we've got, but.... With the lack of forwards coming home and the emerge of the Lauridsens the most important piece to get might be Boedker, since Regin, Frans, Jannik and Eller aren't coming home either.

But I can't help cheer at the outlook of 7-8 out of 10 Danes seeing playoff action. That's were you'd want to be.

If were a hockey player i`d rather represent my country as it is a greater honor than playing for some NHL team that you have no association with other than the fact that they pay you money. Just sayin` ;)

I don`t want to kill your hope,but las year we also won russia in an exhibition game and eveyone thought that QF`s were a guarentee now and well it ended not the way everyone hoped.. and russia won the WC :laugh:

Oh no danger of that. We just got hope that we might not be relegated. I don't think anyone thinks about a QF right now, based on what has happened in 2013 so far.

yup small steps,first make sure you dont relegate(points wise) and THEN you can even start thinking about QF`s :laugh: It`s basically same for us too as we both are in different groups we can wish eachother goodluck (except,you know, if we dont meet in finals :D :D)

Yep because we both need it if we want a shot for the WC 2017.
We will also be "blessed" with a Scandinavian championship since Sweden, Norway and Denmark are in the same group.
You can have the East Baltic championship with Russia and Finland. So lots of prestige :D

You mean east of Baltics or East Baltics as the latter would not make sense as Baltics are located in North( sorry,just nitpicking :laugh:)
But yeah winning Russia would be great they are for us the main "rival" if we lose so what,theyre stronger but if we WIN then we can rub it in their faces for looong time :laugh:

OK North East Baltic for Russia and North Baltic for Finland and Central (almost North?) East Baltic for Latvia. :laugh::sarcasm:
Even the Baltic Sea itself have compass directions though it's all "the north" in Europe.
Denmark is Baltic....just southwest Baltic.

and through Denmark's straits (ěresund, StorebŠlt and LillebŠlt) coming from the Baltic Sea you will enter Kattegat which means "Cats-anus". Charming thoughts Dutch merchant sailors had in former times when they sailed from the North Sea towards Copenhagen :laugh::naughty:

If I were a top athlete I'd want to go up against(And perhaps become) the best in the world given the chance. The best in the world aren't at the WC. Just sayin' ;)
