Girgensons is disqualified, so this means our 2nd line is royally ****ed and someone will have to play out of position again, which didn't end very well in the first games.

We just don't have another decent C in this lineup. :shakehead

Dzerins can play in centre and hes not THAT bad,ofcourse hes not comparable to Z.

Namejs 05-11-2013 04:29 AM

You mean Andris "I can't hold on to a puck for more than 2 seconds" Džeriņš?

Hes still better than Janis " Wooden Hands" Sprukts IMO

Namejs 05-11-2013 04:38 AM

LOL. Sprukts is a 110kg beast with great stick handling skills.

In any case, at least he can throw some bodies around and not lose the puck straight after entering the attacking zone.

Plus Sprukts has tendency to draw countless PP opportunities for us. When Dzerins is diving we get nothing. :sarcasm:

AndrewGaze 05-11-2013 07:50 AM

Lack of Girgensons really slims our chances, but I think our guys can pull it off.

Schalkenullvier* 05-11-2013 11:17 AM

well so far all sports results today have been awful, so I think Germany is due for one :sarcasm: Seriously, with France and Latvia winning matches they're not supposed to, we can't really afford to lose this game.

ficohok* 05-11-2013 11:19 AM

I dont understand why Cortina has Zepp as no1. goalie...

well he did single-handedly give us our only win

begbeee 05-11-2013 12:28 PM

Zepp for Germany definitely lost a minimum of one point in game against Slovakia.

is that better or worse than "stone hands"? :D

Bubba88 05-11-2013 12:32 PM

Zepp is #1 because the other options we have right now aren't better. Greiss still has to back up Niemi and Reimer is injured

frostyflo 05-11-2013 12:34 PM

go and get em, Deutschland!

edit: not that way! that was not what I meant

Shadowthrone 05-11-2013 12:37 PM

WTF was the second penalty supposed to be :rant:

Justinov 05-11-2013 12:38 PM

Extremely tight PK box for the Germans.....trust they can get all shots coming in from the Latvian's.

Bubba88 05-11-2013 12:38 PM

killing the 5 on 3 was key and drawing a penalty was even better.

Killing a 5-3 can really boost a team.....

AndrewGaze 05-11-2013 12:41 PM

Eh Latvia's not looking too energetic and confident as they were against SVK.

yes it can, but I think effort is not the problem with Germany. The lack of talent is the problem. A guy like Greilinger is not good enough outside of Germany. Goc is more of a worker than skill player as is almost every player in the roster.

It's either a grinder, hard working guy or skill guy with not enough skill for that kind of competition. We can't keep up with skill and talent and have to hope that we can outwork the opponents.

If both teams are very close into the third period that "outworking the opponents" can make the other tired team lose focus when things starts to get nervous. Germans teams always seem to be able to "run the sun black" as we say here in DK.

Namejs 05-11-2013 01:02 PM

Latvia looks disorganized. The PPs were ridiculous, the 5on3 was absolutely abysmal. In a game like this powerplays are crucial and we've wasted our chances completely. Not a good 1st period.

They not only look like, they are. Great finish by Ullmann though. And nice pass by Gogulla.

Namejs 05-11-2013 01:59 PM

Looks like we'll have to get 3 points against France to stay up. Very few scoring chances for us and wasted PPs. :/
