My cousin recently got signed. I’m also friendly with half the goalies in the league 

i guess that’s the perks of playing hockey in such small country 

I'm coming soon, May 10th is my flight but sadly not taking goalie gear haha going for a visit :)

I made a highlight vid for the Israel v Croatia IIHF game that just happened

the Israeli goalie faced 84 shots while the Croatian goalie faced 22

couldnt do much about the announcers though.

Pretty cool video, hey as long as they are having fun.

Israel got rocked by China this game 14-1 final

And China is not even that good. They got their butts kicked to the tune of 3 losses by a score difference of 16-2 against.  The only game they were competitive in was against Germany. 

Hopefully Israel can make some progress up the leaderboard in the next few years.

I’ve been told by a very trusted source that they left out some of the better defensemen this year by taking a lot more defensemen (fcking hockey politics.)

Looking over the past 3 games it feels like 

1)individually a good amount of them can be competitive but they aren’t playing well as a team. They barely practice together. If they even get a practice game they will absolutely fleece everyone else. So it’s hard for them to get actual competition.

2) while watching the Israel’s defensive game they just stayed inside the dots leaving a ton of space by the boards for passes. We only have 1 ice rink with European size ice and that’s all the way up north in israel. The main rinks we play/practice in are not that size. It looked like they played the wrong style of defense 

3) there had no urgency/hustle. They were always second to the puck just waiting for the other team to make a move. Not getting so physical. Leaving the goalies to foot the bill.

From some of the highlights they definitely look disoriented and not interested. Lack of practice as you mentioned and players just not playing together. 

A little more hustle would be nice though.
