    Someone posted this roster.

    Starkbaum
    Kickert

    Heinrich - Ulmer
    Schumnig - Unterweger
    Schlacher - Altmann
    Strong - Viveiros

    Grabner - Raffl M. - Vanek
    Raffl T. - Komarek - Hofer
    Ganahl - Hundertpfund - Lebler
    Woger - Haudum - Rotter

    I have some differing preferences, but this is a pretty solid outline.

    good for them, looks like they have some decent depth there...not sure what kind of youth they have coming, always surprised that Austria and Germany are not providing more NHL talent

    Haudum buried on 4th line? The guy is playing good in shl playoffs. Put him on the second line.

    I'm not a Hofer fan, but Hofer, Lebler, and Thomas Raffl are simply better right now, and we need centers.

    3 NHLers is unlikely, but if we get all 3 something like this, for now at least.

    Grabner - M.Raffl - Vanek
    T. Raffl - Komarek - Zwerger
    Lebler - Haudum - Hofer
    Woger - Hundertpfund - Huber
    Rotter

    Heinrich - Schumnig
    Ulmer - Unterweger
    Schlacher - Altmann
    Viveiros

    Rotter is the most controversial character in Austrian hockey. Opinions range drastically on the topic. I'm indifferent towards him, that's the honest truth.

    Oh goodness. I don't remember all of it. Basically, he got snubbed at a few tournaments. Then he snubbed the federation at a few tournaments. There may be more, I see it being discussed on the feed and I generally look the other way. He is not an indispensable character for the team moving forward.

    I hope so, too. U20 staying in the second divison (which is Top-16) is engouraging. A pity that U18 missed out promotion that close. And there is Rossi. :)

    The U20 result was embarrassing. It was a weak class so we saw it coming, but we should be in contention for promotion every year. I think next year may come down to us and Germany if the coaches work it right.

    Relegation will probably a 3-teams battle between Austria, Belarus and France (though I don't know the real level of Slovakia).
    Each game will be crucial.

    Why Mathias Lange has not been in the national team lately?

    Oh, that's another long feud. Plane tickets mostly.

    There was a quote from Ray Ferraro in the Swiss-Canada game that perfectly encapsulates my concerns with our team.

    "The one thing about the Swiss, they generally skate pretty well, they just don't possess a lot of creativity."

    Our Team boss and sport director is Swiss. I would say that this problem is significantly worse for us than it is even for the Swiss. I want to believe we can stay up, but I'm not optimistic this year. Simply put, Austrian hockey loves stupid players. If a player is smart, good hands, good vision, good system player, we will trash him. If he's just a small fast goon who loves to chase the puck, automatic favorite.

    The hope is that the next time up we will have what it takes. That's the hope at least.

    Yes please. I want to see Lukashenko have an epileptic fit. Think of the meme potential. Oh please Austria.
