Yeah, from 1994 to at least 97 we have, I'd say, superior junior players than we had ever before at least during our independence. It's hard to say though if 96 are more talented as 1994 oe even 95 or 97, as SK Riga 95 and 97 have done better in the championships they play than 96... Though I must say there are more top guys not from SK Riga born 1996 like Egle who was the topscorer in his EmJHL team this year, Locāns or Vasiļonoks.

As i see from the roster, it was pretty much a Latvian selects team, except for the three best guys imho Vasiļonoks, Locāns and Egle. Though Haralds Egle was listed on the roster of the team, I looked through your tournament's page and game results and didn't see him anywhere, scoring, giving an assist or getting a penalty so I believe he didn't play there? Did he?

Otherwise if we don't count those three then the guys you mentioned had to be the best on this roster.
