Širokovs change his mind or something? He told the Swiss papers he turned down the invite because he wanted to help RED ICE get into the play-offs.

I like how our D looks, good mix of experience and youth, all the ******* have been wiped out, but those bottom six forwards are a bit too extreme for my liking, even though fortunately, there's no Koba this time around.

Why no Vasiljevs? 2nd line center looks like a huge hole in this lineup.

He retired from the International play a while ago. C position has been our problem for last 15 years, we're used to it.

Is Mikelis Redlihs ready or still uncertain. He is afterall the offensive dynamo of Latvia, so with the form of some of the french players right now he will be needed!

The french are coming:
Damien Fleury just had a hattrick for Södertälje.
23G 14A in 43 matches. Number 8 in Allsvenskan.

So they have 1 SEL (Bellamere), 2 Allsvenskan (Fleury + Hecquefeuille), 2 Sm-liiga (Auvitu + Bertrand), 2 Czech Extraliga (Treille brothers), 2 NLA players (Pivron + Morant) + Division 1/Allsvenskan (Guttig).

At least you will avoid: Flourent (AHL/NHL), da Costa & Sauvé (AHL) and future french star Tim Bozon (WHL).

In goal perhaps old NHL'er Cristobal Huet, now in NLB [how can France and Slovenia have Stanley Cup champions, while Denmark still hasn't ]

hehe just want to scare you a little, but it wasn't a fluke they beat the Swiss last WC - they are getting better.

I saw the game where Miķelis got injured,he wasn't carried out with a strecher but it was a nasty head shot,he was still on the bench after the hit but it looks like it was a bit too severe to continue(btw ozoliņš scored in that game) anyway with ozoliņš returning to our NT i'm more confident in our success than ever.

So if it gave him concussion he will be out; and it does take some time to really know.
But you are right..Ozolins is the second best thing to boost confidence after promise of divine support, right

Well its no coincidence he has been the captain of the Latvian NT,Atlant Mytischi and Dinamo Riga. Some people just have the talent of beein the natural leader.

ON PAPER certainly not a better team than us,but really it`s going to be close.I just hope we can gather all our forces to win this and i have to pray that Mikelis injury is nothing serious.

You forgot Antoine Roussel who scored his 1st NHL goal the other day with Dallas,
Texas stars were going to let him go to Oly Q.....but now that he's up in the show?
Tim Bozon...is he the son of the Bozon that starred for France in the 90's and played some with St Louis Blues?

Sorry actually meant Roussel as the french NHL player (and wrote Flourent instead.....????? whereever that name came from ). But goal in the NHL debut match is pretty great....interesting if he will join the french squad?
Tim Bozon is the son of Phillipe Bozon from St Louis Blues, the biggest french hockey star with Cristobal Huet.

I would use porcupine tactics and hoping for an honorable defeat!

EDIT: Just look at Tony Hands stats 80-90's in the british league (it's like Balderis in the Latvian!)
