Official Website 4th to 20th of May, 2018 Being someone who binges over all things Denmark, I thought I'd share little knowledge I've garnered with few trips to Denmark to those who may have been planning on making the trip. My knowledge isn't perfect, but should you have anything to add I'll gladly add it up here. :) Denmark Basics Denmark can be (and usually is) an expensive country. We're talking the levels of Sweden and Finland. I can't make comparison to Norway as I've not been there....
Seen a lot of talk about the level of play and players in the Olympics and I can understand the disappointment for the NHL's decision of not letting the NHL players go, however people who can't enjoy this tournament are NHL fans not hockey fans. It is always funny to see how (mostly NA fans) belittle the leagues and guys playing in Europe or even AHL, you guys realize that it's not like the talent level just suddenly drops drastically after those what, 700-800 guys that play in the NHL? In...
Outside of the Miracle on Ice (the guys drafted/eligible from 76-81), the greatest era for USA Hockey was 1987-1992. I am talking specifically about drafts in a row. That is the era that brought much of the 1996 World Cup Gold winners together, and the core group for 1998/2002 Olympics as well. These are the years that brought us Mike Modano, Jermey Roenick, Doug Weight, Billy Guerin, Keith Tkachuk, Derian Hatcher, Bryan Smolinski, Tony Amonte, etc, etc etc.. No doubt in my mind the greatest...

This could be one of the strongest teams in slovak history. Big question is if current head coach Bokros will stay or will be replaced by Javorcik, head coach of the U18 team. Another problem is the Orange Team, because majority of the best players are either abroad or already playing senior league in their home towns. So there is no point in having that team...

There is a first roster for the preparation camp. No surprise is that Nico Hischier is not available. Players to watch for: Barandun, Geisser, Gross, Stadler on D. Kurashev, Eggenberger, Miranda, Nussbaumer on Offence. I thought Akira Schmid would get a shot in the goal, wonder why not. Goalkeepers (3): Matteo Ritz (Lausanne HC), Andrin Seifert (EHC Kloten), Philip Wüthrich (SC Bern). Defence (10): Davyd Barandun (HC Davos), Tim Berni (GCK/ZSC Lions), Dominik Egli (EHC Kloten), Tobias...
