S9 Buzzer national teams

Recommended Posts

Buzzed by Paul's idea in Cage, I started to put together some small nations' national team squads. I did in 14 F, 8 D, 3 G format, tried to split the 14 into 5 C + 9 F, but where centers were clearly better than the last few forwards there I went with them. Just to be clear, I only looked at overall (what I try to avoid when building my team tho), so it's rather the best team than the right one :D Any questions, requests, advice and comments are welcome as well :) I also used a bit more colors in the player traits, according to the order of traits in the help files

Let's start with the Italy roster here too:

Interesting to see they have a lot of free agents, almost no depth in wingers, and their best goalie is down in the Czech league. 

Ones to watch: Pablo Zambrotta, the 87 ovr center and Samuele Perico, the 84 ovr defender, both with plenty of GHL experience, and Cristian Diego Alves, the recent BHL draftee who can grow into an important player for this team.

As you can see, their D-line is getting old, but they try to compensate it with size and toughness :D

So, continuing with S11 teams. I won't upload Italy again, as only a few changes: 2-3 old guys retired, but no young superstar or anything else came across. So let's go forward with Team Ukraine. In real life they are the worst in the world rankings of the nationalities in the game. 

But they have 5 defenders playing in GHL, and their D line is in very good age. In offense they have the legendary Kyrylo Voloshin, 800+ GHL regular season and almost 100 playoff match, close to point/match in both categories. Then there's Pavlo Savaryn, who looks like gonna continue Kyrylo's fame, and his best years are still to come. Their offense is quite old tho, but they have good talents on the way. Their only problem could be the goalie depth, if Fedorenko is injured, they will be in massive trouble. But with this brutal firepower on their best day they can be a huge challenge for the big teams too.

Next up is Austria. 

If you look at them, their core team looks like a good, stable average one, with no real stars but reliable guys all around. The D has plenty of talent with the already grown youngsters. They have even younger forwards who are not elite level, but could be good depth players in the future (didn't look at ratings..:D ). Key players will be Sandro Koch from the Black Devils who looks very good at the age of 23, the same could be said about Foresters' D-man Angelo Braun, and Razorbacks experienced  goalie Yannik Meyer. They look like a good mix in every aspects of personality traits also. (By the way, if anyone knows how to represent Belarus flag in excel, heeelp. that white-red stripe on the left is killing me, l tried, but looks lame.. :D )

Next team is Slovenia.

At first they look like a good middle tier team, who are very nice off the ice, but kinda tough to meet them at the game. It looks like they have 2 quite good lines, and then quality drops a bit, but for a small nation like them, I guess it's normal. Their top attackers are Jan Kosir (Golden Flyers) and Dominik Oresnik (Razorbacks) who can pull this team in their prime years. On the D side, by far the top pair is Davor Novak (Hawks) and Alexander Pirjevec (Outlaws), who are stilly very young, so the future looks bright. In goal 3 kinda similar players: Uros Horvat looks the best, and he is quite Heroic, but here form can be a big factor when picking the starter

Well, I started with random small teams, and when l started again, first went through the already done teams, then with the new ones l decided to go according to the IIHF world rankings. The last "original" small team is France

They have a few elite players, like Rodolphe Jahic of the Bandits, or the young gun El Madkouri, who is trying to build himself up in the SHL. Their core looks quite fine, and on forwards side depth is good also. But their lack of leadership (2 of their designated leaders would barely make the line up, at least they are young) and anxiety of big games could cause them serious problems. Also they have a lot of playmakers, but no scorers..:D  And at last... where the hell are the french goalies in the game? They should really look for a middle-high tier canadian guy with french name if they want to be competitive!
