    Jesper Jensen in 4th line instead of Julian and Jannik gets the 3rd center spot?

    Julian getting benched?

    No, I don't think that this is the best use of the resources. I would expect the following lines maybe as early as Wednesday against Finland:

    Oliver Bjorkstrand - Peter Regin - Nicklas Jensen
    Mikkel Boedker- Frans Nielsen - Mads Christensen
    Nicklas Hardt - Jesper Jensen - Frederik Storm
    Patrick Russell - Julian Jakobsen - Jannik Hansen
    Morten Madsen

    That will give us 3 scoring lines and an excellent shutdown line. Of course having the Honey Badger on the fourth line may seem a little strange, but he is also great on the PK, and can save energy for that duty then. I like Mads C. on the Frans Nielsen line because he is put to much better use on a scoring line than on a shutdown line.

    But maybe Janne Karlsson want to shuffle the lines if the first line doesn't seem to click in the Canada game, who knows?

    We don't need to bench anybody since we can dress 13 forwards and with the injury to Bau there will be exactly 13 forwards on the roster.

    I like your lines, though I would substitute Julian J with Morten Madsen. The latter has been playing well - especially on defence.

    no way hansen is playing 4th line! safe bet is bødker- nielsen - hansen on the 2nd. that's the only logical move.

    hardt - zlatan - storm played together a lot. makes sense to reunite them

    We need something offensive from Bødker that for sure. 1 goal in 5v5 play in 3 games so far. Yikes.

    I know Hansen is good on PK and excellent on a shutdown line but this is a player who should not be playing thst role on this kind of team. He is way too good offensively for that.

    Hopefully bødker can open things up a bit

    My shot at it:
    Bødker-Regin-Bjørkstrand
    Nicklas Jensen-Frans-Jannik
    Hardt-Zlatan-Storm
    Mads C-Julian-Madsen/Russell

    An observation: Karlsson doesn't start Zlatan in our own end a lot. One faceoff in the D-zone in ten periods of hockey.

    Perhaps it would change with Hardt and Storm by his side. But if not it creates a problem with my lines. Those deployments takes up a lot of O-zone starts and in effect moves our best offensive weapons back on the ice.

    Edit: I think in the Germany-game Frans started twice as many times in the D-zone than the O-zone as a (in)direct consequence of the Zlatan-thing. Just a thought for when you put our best snipers on his line ;)

    Morten Madsen doesn't have the quality of a Julian Jakobsen at the faceoff circle. I'd rather he could play defenseman, and replace Stefan Lassen. :naughty:

    Okay, has he improved then? Must admit I haven't seen him playing yet at the WHC. Judging by the performances in Rungsted and Rødovre vs. SWE, where he was an element of uncertainty.

    He played pretty solid in the playoffs though. But you have point, Meyer left a good impression in the exhibition games, and should be on the team at least as 13th or 14th guy.

    Possibly the best Denmark team on WHC of all time? Which top players for Denmark are missing, now with additions of Hansen and Boedker?

    //Ah, Ehlers and Eller.

    You can also add Markus Lauridsen (D), younger brother to Oliver.

    zlatan was brutal against canada. the same goes for madsen and jakobsen.

    it just decrease our already very tiny chance of winning when they have to play that kind of minutes, they did against canada.

    With Andersen it's a 4-1 game - then add Hansen, Bødker (and hopefully Ehlers) and a few lucky bounces, and we stand a chance.

    Morten Green suggested the following in the TV2 Podcast:

    Bødker-Regin-Russell
    Hardt-Frans-Storm

    He mentioned getting Regin away from the boards and put more muscle around him to get more out of his playmaking.

    He didn't put together a full line-up, but named Zlatan as a candidate for the odd one out if Mads C. rejoined the lineup. Morten Madsen and Julian Jakobsen was also mentioned.

    Lasse Degn(I think) talked about starting Jannik in a 3rd/4th line role to get his wheels rolling before relying on him for top 6.

    Both seem like reasonable suggestions..tv2s podcast has been super cool to listen to during this wc

    Been thinking a bit


    Think this could be interesting


    1. Bødker- Regin - Russell
    2. Bjørkstrand - Frans Nielsen - N. Jensen
    3. M. Christensen - Jensen - Storm
    4. Hardt - Jakobsen/Madsen - Hansen( BOOOOOM Line)

    What happens if Winnipeg is sent out tomorrow? Is there still room for Ehlers on the roster?

    The Matias Lassen-spot. Would be absolutely sweet, if Nikolaj Ehlers could join the team. :popcorn:

    But that WPG-NSH series makes it really tough for me to root for the one or other team. On the one hand side you have guys like Laine, Ehlers etc. , and on the other side you have Forsberg, Arvidsson, Fiala, Josi and Saros. Whom are you supposed to root for?

    Denmark has a really solid roster this year. Dont think we have a shot against you guys to be honest.
