I think Denmark has a good chance winning this tournament. Are Belarus really that strong?

Like someone already stated in this thread most of the players on Belarus team are KHL bench-warmers. Would be fun to watch the face of dictator Lukashenko when the Danes foockes his team up

Yes the chance can't really be better, but you know with danish players. They can also crumble under stress....WC handball final anyone

I think most small nation hockey teams have the same problem.

The danish forward lines for tomorrows game against Ukraine are as following:

Mads Christensen (DEL)- Morten Green (DEL) - Morten Madsen (SEL)
Nichlas Hardt (SM-liiga)- Julian Jacobsen (DEL) - Nicklas Jensen (SEL)
Patrick Bjørkstrand (Allsv.)- Jesper Jensen (Allsv.) - Frederik Storm (Allsv.)
Kirill Starkov (Allsv.)- Thor Dresler (Al-Bank) - Morten Poulsen (Allsv.)
13'th forward: Lasse Lassen (Al-Bank)

D-pairs:
Daniel Nielsen (DEL) & Stefan Lassen (Allsv.)
Jesper B. Jensen (SEL) & Philip Hersby (Allsv.)
Mads Bødker (Allsv.) & Mads Bech Christensen (Al-Bank)
7th d-man: Rasmus Nielsen (Al-Bank)

Goal: Frederik Andersen (AHL)

So the tension is building. It's by the way the fourth olympic qualification attempt for Morten Green, so let it be now!

Crazy lines..

Morten Poulsen is certainly one of the 6 best forwards. He should be in first line - Morten Green goes to the 3.
Mads Christensen centers the 1.

And I like morten green and what he has done for Denmark, but if we qualify for the olympics, there is no way he'll be on the team. Maybe as a reserve for faithful service, but he shouldn't see much icetime.

I totally agree that Morten Poulsen playing 4'th line is weird. He is the only danish forward that currently put goals in the net (even Nicklas Jensen has a slump at the moment).
Starkov playing 4'th line?....usually defensive discipline has not been his forcé.

I had Morten Green as center 4'th line, while I would have taken Morten Madsen as center 1'st line and have Nicklas Jensen RW with Nichlas Hardt/Mads Christensen LW on first as well.
You would take Mads Christensen....I would probably prefer him on the wing, but it would still be a better choice than Morten Green if we wanted a dominant first line. But I think Bäckman wants to even out his lines - his mistake last WC was to max out a first line that simply didn't work (especially not on PP).
Morten Green has been a great player for Denmark, but his production has really gone down a lot the last 1½ year compared to former times.

It's still going to be very tough, but it's still the best chance we can hope to get.
Im just covering my ass Anti jinx as we know it Plus I always have a bad feeling when Denmark play OG Qual.. I dunno we just always seem too loose concentration at some point.

But this time around it just can't go wrong. If Frederik Andersen and Nicklas Jensen's gonna have to carry this team on their backs all the way to Sochi then be it! We have to get to these Olympics!
Well im begging for this !

I think what's so scary about this group for Denmark, is that all 3 opponents tend to have focus on heavy defence, and Belarus have good goaltending and a tight defence.
Denmark are not super against those types of teams. THats why some of us are nervous

I think PB is trying to spread the lines, Morten P is scoring, but he is not that experienced.

Also Mads C at center? He is way to small and not physical enough.. So I agree with Justinov on that one.

I'm certainly nervous. It's so important that they get a super start against Ukraine, so they get confidence and an enthusiastic respons for the fans. It will be needed against Slovenia and Belarus - we generally play very tight matches with them.

Belarus are always very disciplined in defence ("poor mans Swiss") and with Koval in goal you really need SKILL to get past that. Nicklas Jensen in goal form will be a must for Denmark, since Nichlas Hardt is still struggling after his knee injury and Morten Madsen also have a goal scoring slump lately.

From what I remember Slovenia is a less physical more fast team ("poor mans Latvia"), so against them we have to be READY from the start and not play slowly as danish players can do when they are favourites - then they often forget to work the behind out the trousers (Italy game last WC anyone!). Don't let the Rodman brothers fool you...even though it's "only" DEL-2. Marcel Rodman is drafted (2001) and he scores goals (leads DEL-2 in points)..

While we are talking we have a surprising development in the qualification.

Kazakhstan leads 3-2 against France in the 3'rd period!
Slovenia leads Belarus 1-0 after first period.

Pretty surprising if this stands......

Austria leads Italy 2-0 after first period....thats more expected.

With all due respect Koval can't stop a beach ball this season.

And Kazakhstan - France, I thought everybody's expecting Kazakhs to win that one.

And it's 2-2. Belorussians understand they have to win this and this team has just too much quality to lose to Slovenians. Unless Kristan completely steals the show. But he doesn't so far.

Yeah how fast things can change it hockey (thats why i said France still had a chance)!

Cant really decide what result is best for Denmark....[we have to win all three, when it's such a small group]

Kind of weird when Latvian says it as you guys have lost to basically the same Slovenian team 5-2 year and a half ago.

P.S. Kristan with pretty ugly Masalskis-like dive

Slovenia is actually an elevator nation between elite and division 1, and I never underestimate them since they have beaten us in the elite division before. (2005 relegation game lost 4-3, 2006 draw 3-3 - beat Latvia 5-2 in 2011).

Slovenia 3-2 (Slovenia comes back after losing a 2-0 lead to 2-2 in 1 minute, that could have broken other underdog teams)!
Goal a penalty!
In WC 2011 Belarus won 7-1 against Slovenia, so a real improvement!

Austria-Italy 3-2 (Italy gets closer).
