League the NHL has prepared for hockey fans this gift in the form of the world Cup, which will be able to participate all the stars of the best League of the planet. The tournament starts on the 17th September 2016 in Toronto, Canada.
According to the regulations of preparation for the world Cup coaching staffs of all the teams participating had to announce in early March a team of 16 «untouchable» players. These players and will be the basis sostavlet teams.
Russian fans learned the names of the foundations of the Russian team at the world Cup of hockey 2016. Although this claim is inconclusive (to sixteen players will be added seven more hockey players), the part of the Russians to the world Cup looks impressive.
The position of goalkeeper Oleg Znarok finally decided. Named three goalkeepers who claim the place of the first number in goal team. All three are in the NHL. This: Sergei Bobrovsky from Columbus, Semyon Varlamov, protects color Colorado, as well as young and promising Andrey Vasilevsky from Tampa.
The defense of Russian national team on the world Cup 2016 is not yet prepared. Unlike other teams, this line claimed where fewer players. Only three defenders from the NHL became part of the 16 «untouchables».
Multi-year veteran of Montreal’s Andrei Markov, conducting very effective the 2015-2016 season, could not be called to the national team. In addition to his team hit Dmitry Orlov, he, along with Ovechkin and Kuznetsov in Washington and the flick on Florida’s Dmitry Kulikov.
In the attack of Russian national team represented a real scattering of stars of world hockey. This line in the team looks the most convincing. Washington was deligious two forwards: Alexander Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov from Chicago will join the national team Artemiy Panarin and Artem Anisimov. The same two strikers in the team Znarka expected from Tampa: Nikita Kucherov and Vladislav Namestnikov.
In the composition of the team expected caused the leader of Pittsburgh Evgeni Malkin, Detroit center Pavel Datsyuk, goal-scorer from St. Louis ‘ Vladimir Tarasenko and forward of the defensive plan from Toronto’s Nikolai Kulemin.
Visually the Russian team at the world Cup of hockey 2016 looks very promising:
It should be noted that the national team will intensify at the beginning of the tournament, but are still seven places in the composition, which may be, for example, Alexander Radulov, Ilya Kovalchuk, Alexander Semin. The coaching staff have a choice and to replenish fish defense in the NHL playing Medvedev, Tyutin, Nikitin, Marchenko and Nesterov in the KHL and defend the colors of the clubs Voynov, Belov, hares, Denisov and others.
In any case, the final composition of the Russian team at the world Cup will be very combative and competing only to win in Toronto.
