Don't think any player will go to MHL B until HK Riga has secured play-off spot. And also don't think that the 94 trio would be the ones that would go there as they seem as the 2nd line in HK Riga in terms of goal producation at the moment.

And I don't think it's as hopeless as it might seem. In the regular season they split wins evenly with Baltica... it was 4:2,3:5,1:5 in Vilnius and 4:3, 3:2 OT and 3:4 in Riga. Close games, especially those in Riga, later on in the season. I'm not saying there'll an upset but I think at the end of the season team is more experienced and can give 'em a good fight. Especially considering that our guys will definitely want to show international Lithuanians which Baltic country plays hockey better, even if the team is really a lot younger

MHL text translations list those 3 on the 3rd line.

But nevertheless you were right that Baltica will have a tough series, Juniors made a mini-upset and took the first game in the series. Good start!

The only playoff game where the lower ranked team beat their opponents too. Crazy game judging by boxscore - 3 goals in space 2 minutes.

Altay also beat Rysi, but that's not a true lower seed, 9th vs 8th.

Yeah but now they have Podziņ on the 2nd line and at least today they made some noise. Otherwise yeah, they are the 3rd line but in terms of how many goals they bring for the team, they are more like the 2nd line, at least if Podzins, Bicevskis and Bukarts are not all playing for HK Riga together with Indrasis and Upītis.

Lipsbergs is the top pointscorer in the team, yeah it would probably not be so if Bicevskis, Indrasis, Bukarts, Upitis, Podzins who have spent many games playing for Metalurgs or Dinamo Riga would play in MHL all year but still, among those who have played MHL all season he's the topscorer so the line brings in a lot of points.

Thanks for the insight, I've missed almost the whole HKR season.

If all of them stay for the next year, then we have the 1st line covered.

I'm not sure I even want to see them stay. If they are this good as underagers there's not much sense of keeping them in the MHL. They should at least be tried out At DR's farm next season wherever that might be.

And there's NHL draft, which could lure them to CHL.

I feel that for most of the 17-18yo it's fine to stay in the MHL, if they play 15+ minutes. Of course, it would be great to see them get a call up to the adult leagues, but staying is also an option. Same goes for Rihards Bukarts, who might have a spectacular next season should he stay.

P.S. Actually, I'm very anxious to see how our squad fares at the U18 WC.

Well, I have no problem with Jevpalovs or Lipsbergs staying in MHL next year as they can still grow in MHL very well and as it was already said, better play 15 minutes in MHL than 7 in Liepāja on the 4th line. And even if they're not on 4th line, MHL is better for young players as it's a league where they can play faster hockey and more skill based game while in adult leagues like VHL and BOL they will demand for guys more tactical things and better physical condition. Young Canadians at that age play in CHL, not in AHL already even if they are very good.

But if they stay I'd like to see Lipsbergs or Jevpalovs already tried in Dinamo Rīga for some games like Bičevskis and Upītis this year.

They still can get drafted too, even if their position was low in NHL Midterm draft rankings from Europe, there's still U18 ahead and they've played much better duing the second half of MHL than during the first half of season so at least one of them might impress (or maybe Jevpalovs already impressed somebody at U20) scouts.

Rihards Bukarts seems really promising. Especially considering the fact that Yakupov at the same averaged about the same amount of points as Bukarts Of course Yakupov didn't get to play many games and was on the 3rd line I guess while Bukarts now regularly plays 2nd or 1st line but all in all his stats are impressive for 2014 draft guy. Even Russia's biggest hope for 2014 draft Barbashev Jr. in MVD doesn't make such numbers. I have a feeling that Bukarts might move to CHL during off-season. On the other hand his brother chose the Russia route and Bukarts has said he'd love to play in Dinamo Riga together with Roberts...

The best CHL'ers aren't playing in AHL because it's forbidden. CHL is business, if their star players would leave, the league would go bust. It's NHL or CHL for Canadians kids.

Bukarts would love a lot things, but if he will get drafted by Vityaz or Avtomobilist, he'll probably have to make a do in CHL.

Even if they do, I suspect Sejejs would be willing to make a trade with the club that drafted Rihards.
