    Laugh all you want at these teams but I have a buddy that plays on the Netherlands team - he plays on my summer hockey team and dominates.

    During the winter I play with a guy who was one of the leading scorers in the East Coast league and I think he led the United League one year - and the Dutch player is better. So there is some talent at this tournament.

    Poland will get beaten by both Norway and Hungary.

    Hungarians have this superb Lavente Szuper on goal and Norwegians are a well-rounded team. Poles have a relatively weak team (without Czerkawski, Oliwa and, which is most significant, our premium goalie, Jaworski). At least our defence is OK (it would be even better with Borzęcki, tough).

    That should be the case. So far though Italy seems to have a slight edge considering they beated Estonia 2-0 while France got only a draw yesterday against the same team (3-3).

    ================================

    The only problem with your post is that Poland and Hungary are not Eastern- European countries.They're right in the middle of Europe(Hungary is)... :teach:

    I can see Poland beating Hungary. But I think that Norway will win this group ahead of Poland

    Poland's chances of winning the group took a major setback today with the loss to Norway. Poland's hopes now reside with Japan as the best, and only team remaining, that can beat Norway.

    The first game on the last day of competition is Japan and Norway. If Norway wins, I'd imagine the Poles will be deflated as they will not win the group. They will not play with as much zeal later in the day in their match with Hungary as they would if winning the group were on the line.

    If Hungary defeats China and the Brits, scoring sufficient goals in the process, and end up hosting a dejected Polish team, they could actually win this group and be promoted to the top group...

    ....who'd a thunk dat?...

    ...not I.

    That said, if Japan can upset Norway the entire scenario changes.

    Pretty good day for Hungary. Norway defeated Poland earlier today and the Hungarians took the initiative and ran up the score on the Chinese....

    ...9 to 0 Final.

    Norway has a day off to rest their snipers for Friday's meeting against China. Considering that goal differential could decide the group winner, this game could get fugly.

    Nemzetisport had an online update of the game.I was watching it and from what I read it could have been 15-0...We hit the goal post several times,on one occasion twice within a minute.Plus we in the third we started to take them lightly and some players got cocky.It almost cost us some goal against,but Budai was there. :bow:

    I can't belive it.We are so close!!!

    RIA RIA HUNGARIA!!! :yo: :yo: :yo:

    It seems Italy just scored three in 21 seconds :eek: (and four in 2 minutes and half) to solve Lithuania.
    Is it a record?

    Norway won 25-1 (89-7 in shots). That means that Norway got +30 in goal difference. Hungary got +12 before tonights game against GBR. Tomorrow Norway faces Japan and Hungary faces Poland.

    It seems hard for Hungary to win the group now.

    I thought it might get pretty fugly.

    Hungary obviously will lose the tiebreaker. The only way they can win is if they win their last two games and get a little help from the Japanese....

    ....which isn't very likely at all.

    Tonight first tough match up for France who plays Netherlands on their home ice. The group is still wild open (France tied Estonia, Netherlands tied Italy) but the Frenchies are not playing that good without Bordeleau, Treille et Huet. But everybody is missing players so that shouldn't be an excuse.... So ALLEZ LES BLEUS, you gotta win this one against the Dutch.
