General Talk '14 — Belarus

Being the host country, what do you think that their roster will look like? Primarily KHL players from Dinamo Minsk, a few peeps from the BXL + Grabovski & Korobov?

Playing for Lokomotiv now.

Anyway, if everyone turns up, Belarus as always can have a really good roster. Seeing that it will be home tournament, maybe even Kostitsyn brothers will get their act together for this one.

As morally questionable as it might be, naturalizing a number of foreigners has increased the quality of the Belarusian and Kazakhstani national teams. At least on paper.

The Belarusian team looks surprisingly decent, especially if all of their best players will make it this time (I haven't checked, if their NHLers/AHLers will make the play-offs this year).


By the way, Group B looks really even. Switzerland, Germany, Latvia, Belarus, Kazakhstan can all beat each other, while the US can realistically end up being relegated, if they're going to send NHL scrubs and AHL/major junior/collegiate players again.

He's ineligible, he has only played there for one season and a bit.

A team made of almost KHLers, good KHLers also + playing at home, I guess the matches will be full and good support? For sure this team can hurt the bigger teams.

Probably. Finnish fans told that it's cheaper to Fly in and back from belarus, stay there two weeks and watch few games, than only watch two games in Finland. I hope we (you and us) never get World Championships again unless they make agreement on ticket price cap.

ON paper this is a very solid team. If playing home, will actually help them, they can make some surprises.

Of course the matches of Belarus (and Russia) are all sold out. It's not like too many international events are hosted in Belarus.
