after the end of div 1 wc-20 during ceremony iihf representative said that it wasn't the best team (norway) which promoted to the elite thus hinting that belarus was.

on the other hand is that belarus hasn't been at elite division of u-20 since 2007, and others were at least once.

we haven't produced an elite talent for a while and latvia has girgensons, denmark - ehlers?

but i'm trying to be positive (though, it's hard) and my thoughts now that we're on par with norway and denmark while latvia going slightly ahead of us
How do you see the impact of Dinamo Minsk on popularity of hockey in Belarus and overall producing of good talent?
