No Thomas Pock or Andre Lakos?

I'd expect to see Grabner there for sure and I'm thinking Vanek will be there after the first round of the playoffs. I wouldn't expect to see Nodl this year though.

Lakos is still in play-offs and Pöck left right after Rapperswil season back to the US to be with his girlfriend/wife and was rumoured to be seeing a doctor for injuries. As of right now he wont be playing due to unspecified family reasons.

from what ive read on another board Grabner might not be playing unless he can secure a new contract with the Islanders first ..

im aware he had a kid.... from the international forumshttp://forums.internationalhockey.ne...&postcount=108

"Little update on the player availability:

Michael Grabner's participation in the IHWC is really much in doubt. The reason is not however his newly born first kid but upcoming the contract negotiations of the RFA. His contract with the Islanders was just for this season and I guess he is not willing to jeopardize his market value by playing in Slovakia. So team AUT has to hope that the procedure is done soon."

I read the Islanders want to get this done quickly, if that helps. But obviously that doesn't mean anything. I'm sure his new baby doesn't make the decision any easier.

well i guess it would be a good chance to bring his new baby home to his side of the family(if they live in Austria that is) too.. but thats more an assumption on my part..

Id love to see him play, he could steal a game!

as what I remember Grabs decision was to come after he got a baby, his manager said later (just a few days ago) he might not come because of his new contract...who knows?

but it would be really cool if he would come. even if he couldn`t do much because he`s the focus for every other defense he would create room for the other forwards (like Vanek a few years ago)

but the guy I really hope to make the team is Komarek, this kid has potential!

"Today the confirmation came that Michael Grabner will definitely not play because of a muscle strain (and contract negotiations and a baby and...). "

ouch, after Grabner also Brückler said he won`t come

he gets a new baby in September...so he can`t play in April?!?

so Pöck, Grabner, Brückler out...it seems to me that Vanek is the only guy with balls from our "superstars"

and with Divis, Starkbaum and Brückler out we have a hugh hole at the goaltending position...Division B here we come again

Ouch, no Grabner, Pock or Bruckler? Any word on Lakos?

Ouch, Austria is in some trouble if they don't get Vanek and Nodl.

in this minutes Lakos plays overtime in game7 in the austrian finals, he`ll go to Slovakia for sure

meh, Nödl would be hugh but he isn`t really a difference-maker. Vanek puts all the weight on his shoulders in such situations, which isn`t very productive since the austrian system isn`t built for guys like him

btw we are in trouble anyway, with or without them but the best players from our league still arrive...they know each other, they know how to play this situations so we`ll see

Well if Austria had a lineup of:

Vanek-Nodl-Grabner

Lakos-Pock

Bruckler

They could really have a chance to be a spoiler. However all of these guys (minus Lakos) will be absent.

Our lack of a capable goalie more than the absence of anyone (which in the case of Lakos actually would be a good thing) will seal our fate to return to Division I.
Both Weinhandl and Penker played abysmal in the Euro Challenge.

The chance is very very low.

he got little problems with the austrian association and it seems that he will spend more time with his family. the general manager send him a sms, but no answer because he is still sleeping.

From Facebook:

Thomas Vanek (official)
Fyi: Thomas WILL JOIN the Austrian national Team for the World championships. However, he will only be able to come over at the beginning of next week - right on time for the game against Norway and the rest of the tournament!

TV is a warrior and not one to back down from the challenge to play for a shoddy Austrian team and help them stay in the A-Pool. Well done Thomas!

Our chances, while still slim, have increased.

Guess on Gilligans lines?!? no, I don`t dare but I hope he plays with Koch as his playmaker and Welser or Raffl as the defensive part of this line
