Herewith an abstract of the mind-set of the 16 taking an interest countries as they head home and contemplate the outcomes.
Canada (gold) – When you rehash as champions, lose one and only amusement, respect another Triple Gold Club part (Corey Perry) and have a 19-year-old set a record for speediest to U18, U20, WM gold (Connor McDavid), everything you can do is grin and anticipate one year from now.
Finland (silver) – Suomi has ascended so high in individuals’ brains that when they beat Russia 3-1 in the semi-finals, nobody called it a surprise. The group additionally bragged two mind blowing adolescents this season including competition MVP Patrik Laine, who together with Jesse Puljujarvi is relied upon to go in the main five of the forthcoming NHL Entry Draft.
Russia (bronze) – No, the hosts didn’t win gold, yet they played a propelled bronze-award diversion and showcased a few youthful hotshots, eminently Artemi Panarin, Vadim Shipachyov, and Yevgeni Dadonov.
United States (fourth) – Although the most youthful group in the title lost its last two amusements, the occupation GM Jim Johannson did in gathering this enthusiastic gathering that was an objective far from the gold-award diversion is downright virtuoso. What’s more, Auston Matthews, the normal number-one pick in the up and coming NHL draft, satisfied his notoriety and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
Czech Republic (fifth) – For the first run through ever, the Czechs completed off the platform for a fourth straight year. After a noteworthy 3-0 win over Russia to begin, the group played well however couldn’t get by the Americans in the quarter-finals, losing 2-1 in a shootout. Most likely a frustrating result.
Sweden (sixth) – The Swedes brought, by their elevated requirements, a not very impressive group, yet that is on the grounds that a few players who for the most part acknowledge the welcome declined and on the grounds that their numerous different stars were still in the Stanley Cup playoffs. No stresses with Tre Kronor, however. They are world class the distance.
Germany (seventh) – The Germans indicated character and guarantee this year one year before facilitating the occasion. They surrendered five objectives in a diversion just twice, and that was to the two gold-award amusement groups. They likewise concocted a grip 4-2 win over Belarus late in the Preliminary Round when it mattered most. A group on the ascent.
Denmark (eighth) – After persevering through a horrendous 10-1 misfortune to Russia, the Danes could have collapsed. Rather, they won three straight diversions and fit the bill for the playoffs for just the second time. The NHLers Lars Eller and Nikolaj Ehlers were brilliant, and goalie Sebastian Dahm frequently staggering in the Danish net.
Slovakia (ninth) – In the three amusements they won, Slovakia scored 12 objectives. In the four amusements they lost, they scored yet three objectives. This is not the same group that won Worlds gold in 2002, so fans need to hold up persistently until the up and coming era of stars creates.
Norway (tenth) – The swansong for mentor Roy Johansen was paramount for a 3-1 win over Latvia, yet the group’s general execution can be followed to an absence of offense. It scored only 13 times in seven diversions and completed amidst the pack, not adequate for the playoffs, not sufficiently poor to dread assignment.
Switzerland (eleventh) – A disillusioning first year for Swiss mentor Patrick Fischer saw the joint effort in SIX one-objective diversions and win just two recreations by and large. Given that the group won silver only three years prior, this must be an outcome that will leave fans shaking their head.
Belarus (twelfth) – Belarus beat Slovakia and France to complete 6th in Group B, however there was a day or two of stress that it may confront assignment. These are intense times for a country which has been in the top division for a long time and checking.
Latvia (thirteenth) – The Latvians won just once, a 2-1 win over Kazakhstan, the group that was consigned. Four of their six misfortunes were by one objective and a fifth was by just two objectives. The group was close in each diversion yet just couldn’t score – or avoid – an auspicious objective.
France (fourteenth) – The co-has for 2017 were shielded from downgrade by uprightness of this, yet they by the by did what they needed to do to complete out of last place. Enormous wins over Germany and Hungary guaranteed a seventh-place complete in Group B, however like a significant number of the weaker groups, goalscoring demonstrated hazardous.
Hungary (fifteenth) – A 5-2 win over Belarus was the country’s first World Championship win in the top level in 77 years and was one of the charming snippets of the whole competition. Tragically, they couldn’t back this up in their last amusement against Germany, losing 4-2 and being consigned. Their fans are, well, awesome, and the group is ended up being in the middle of top level and Division I, which means they’ll be back as soon as possible.
Kazakhstan (sixteenth) – Despite the great play of the North American line of Nigel Dawes, Brandon Bochenski, and Dustin Boyd, the group basic couldn’t keep the puck out of its own net sufficiently long to record more than one win, a premiere night, 3-2 win versus Switzerland. Downgraded, they, as well, will probably ricochet go down sooner or later soon.
