Slovenia represents our final 2014 Olympic roster preview. A country of only two million people, this former Yugoslavian state is a country participating in their first Olympic ice hockey tournament. To say Slovenia, a country of only two million people, is an underdog would be an understatement. Gambling websites have them listed anywhere from 1000-1 […]
For the last month we have been previewing the teams that will be competing in the men’s ice hockey tournament at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi. You’ve seen the best, now see the rest! Today’s team is a hockey country on the rise. Team Norway has outplayed Germany on the world stage in the last […]
Austria is far from a hockey power and a surprise entry into the Olympic hockey tournament. A country of approximately 8 million people, it is known more for alpine skiing and soccer than hockey. Remarkably, Austria’s national hockey team finds itself in the Olympic Games, with the top 12 hockey playing countries in the world.
I wasn’t planning on doing a preview for Latvia, Norway, Austria or Slovenia (aka the other guys), but I’ve had a change of heart. Sure, only the top eight countries are likely to be a factor in the Olympic tournament, but anything is possible. Nobody thought that Belarus had a chance to beat anyone in […]
Canada will try to defend its status as Olympic hockey champion in Sochi and it won’t be easy. Canada won’t have the home crowd or small ice surface to their advantage like they did in 2010. With 78 days until the start of the Sochi Olympics and 40 days before the team has to be […]
In my final Olympic preview (Rob will finish things off with a look at team Canada tomorrow) I take a look at the country with the most medals in Olympic hockey with NHL participation: Team Finland.
As we start to wind down our previews of the top contenders taking part in the Sochi Olympics, I tackle my toughest task: projecting Team Switzerland.
Slovakia, once a team on the rise with a talented group of forwards is now a team in decline. Players like Ziggy Palffy, Pavol Demitra and Peter Bondra have not been replaced. They are still being carried by players that are long in the tooth and there isn’t a lot of promising young players in […]
In our continuing look at the top contenders participating in February’s Olympic hockey tournament, today we take a look at team Czech Republic.
Sweden enters the 2014 Olympic hockey tournament with high hopes and a new leadership core. This is no longer a group led by the likes of Mats Sundin, Peter Forsberg and Niklas Lidstrom. This team will need to be led by Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Henrik Zetterberg and Erik Karlsson.
