Sorry I am off topic, but it is my final words on the U18 team. It is amazing to me, so many relegation games over the past 15 years of Slovak hockey, and not once has SVK ever been relegated at any level. They seem best in the world at staying alive.

Judging from statistics, today's big win over Switzerland was because of the play of Juraj Holly.

I am not sure what to say of this team. They were terrible. I'm not sure what the cause of that was. The three North American based players (perhaps Bortnak is an exception) were really bad. Hrivik didn't do as much as I thought. Same for Stastny. Perhaps the best player on the team was a guy who would have been born in 1993 if he was born 2-3 days later. With Jurco, Slovakia appears to have another great forward in the making.
