It's nice to see Latvian hockey improving so quickly. So many good, young players coming through the system and trying to make the NHL. The Latvian national team is going to jump up in the IIHF rankings in the next few years with all the young guns they have.
...By the Winnipeg Jets and Kulda brothers will get to play together on one team one can dream ,right?

I agree that Latvian hockey is improving steadily,but it needs a bit more support from the Latvian goverment and Latvian Hockey Federation for it to really kickoff.
