I was surprised that they even took Legzdiņš, but I suppose they also need someone who works hard in defense and fights, skills-wise we could find better options but the team already has four 1994 born forwards and a couple of 93 so experience is welcome. The coach said that he mainly chose those players who worked hard and well in defense as it will (hopefully) be one of the ways how we can win a game or two- with hard work in defense and scoring our chances.

As I said, it's hard to say what this team will be capable of, as even in preparatory games the full roster of consisting even of all our European players was never seen in action... though we did well, for us, in Lida cup winning Denmark and losing to Belarus in OT on their home ice. All our North Americans will be a great addition too, so we'll see.
