I'm impressed by the Czech, they have a very mature style of play that will allow them to compete at a high level in all games, I think. This isn't at all flashy, but effective in the end. They shouldn't be underestimated for sure.

They already were, but they wouldn't have minded the points in case the Czechs end up joining them.

Latvia was in it to win it, but were worn out and couldn't get the puck late in the game

It all depends on the scalability of their play, they will hopefully need a better effort than today to beat us, but if they can turn up a notch, it will be hard for us.

Faksa's terrible this season, makes me wonder how was he drafted as high as no. 13 every time I see him. On the other hand, just goes to show how weak 2012 draft class really was.

It's actually any male last name that ends in anything other "o". Andersons, forexample.

Hopefully Sweden beats Finland in regulation and all the Swiss need is a point.

A win gets them in regardless of the result in the other game though

If our defense didnt suck,we would have won this game.In the past it was the other way around kind of okay-ish defense and horrible offense.

I really liked Sedlak in this game. The guy works hard everytime he's on the ice. True team player.

I don't think Latvia even have that bad of a team, it is just set up the wrong way. Who would have thought the biggest loss for Latvia in this tournament would be against Switzerland..

I don't remember when our defenders did better job, than this year.
Our defense can't pass, but they can defend well.
We have only 1500 juniors....

Well yeah,we lack those kind of defenders,also the kind of defenders who can rip it from blue line-none to be found on our team.

But I heard that the 's' in the end is just something they add to any name. A friend of mine said that while staying in latvia he went to see a movie starred by Toms Hanks

Musil and Faksa are biggest disappointments so far. Our whole D is awful, can't make a pass. Frk and Faksa have no chemistry, too bad, could have been very solid line.

Exactly, shows the coach has no confidence in his decisions.
