The only good think about Freibergs' suspension is that he had plenty of time to workout with strength and conditioning coaches at Bowling Green. Many months to work on speed, strength etc the only thing to worry about will be his conditioning especially at a higher level than hes used to playing at. Large difference between NCAA and top European leagues/NHL and he only played in 8 games at the NCAA level to boot, but USA does it often and their kids play pretty good, so hopefully he shows well.

He's a normal coach. And anyway the results of U20 are not the most important thing, more importantly the guys coached by him get drafted and turn out to be quite decent prospects (Gudļevskis, Indrašis, Porejs, Jakovļevs, Upītis, CHL drafted guys...).

I honestly don't understand the bad press he gets. Sure, there was the Kļaviņš' case but let's say it's not crystal clear and certainly Tambijevs point of view is not without merit. And let's face it, last year there were simply 9 more talented teams in the WJC.

I'd say:

Goalies:
Masalskis
Gudlevskis

Defense:
Kulda
Bartulis
Pujacs
Sotnieks
Kr. Redlihs
Ozolins (?)
Galvins (Freibergs?)

Forwards:

Darzins- Sprukts- M. Redlihs
Indrasis - Girgensons - Kenins
Jekimovs - Dzerins- Cipulis
Meija- Pavlovs- Jass

No...just no. Replace Ņiživijs with Jekimovs or Meija and it makes more sense.

Hard to see Ozolins not suiting up for this one as well as a last horrah. Unfortunately, so will Nizivijs. If everyone is healthy our D looks adequate enough, though our bottom six forwards will probably look amazingly out of depth if we will try to "play" hockey.

Our offense will change massively in next four years after Sochi judging by our prospects in late teens.

and now I notice that I'm missing Daugavins in the roster...

And Merzļikins is off to a good season in NLA, so perhaps he can also enter the competition. His age might be a concern perhaps, as Olympics is more of a show for more seasoned players... but well it might depend on what we have in terms of goaltending early winter.

I know this is a major junior league, but Robert Lipsbergs has 10 goals in 13 games for the Seattle Thunderbirds in the WHL here in the states. Could he possibly get a look?
