I don't understand why people are being so negative.
It's not really negative, it's realistic. 100K Is not a lot of money to put into hockey for an entire country

That's $20 from every registered hockey player in the UK lol

But it's a massive step forward, it's the first time we've actually been given any money in quite a long time.

Final roster announced, OP updated

http://www.icehockeyuk.co.uk/gb-name...-squad-p181521

Looks like they are optimistic that Murphy will be healthy, Lyle is on the reserves so I assume they're going to take him if Murphy isn't healthy.

Has never played hockey here

He's got a dual Canadian citizenship so he needs to have played the 2 years of hockey in GB to be eligible.

Latvia will probably broadcast all their games on their TV but we need someone to stream it

Small hope but more chance than in Ukraine.

Also - good that there's funding. Any money is welcome.

Okay, so team GB has to take one scalp and push maybe 2 games into OT or SO and hope the others beat up on each other.
Who do you beat and who do you force into OT?

I agree, but it depends which players reports to Kazakh camp, and I'm not even talking about Kevin effin Dallman.

He has spent enough time in Kazakhstan to be but I dont ever remember reading he gained citizenship however with that said, he is on the entry list so I guess he does.

Are you guys talking about Kevin Dallman, the man expelled from Kazahkstan, playing for Kazahkstan? Seems unlikely, doesn't it?

As there's live coverage there's likely more chance someone will stream it but I wouldn't hold out hope.

I'll be watching on ESPN though.
