Yes I agree with your statement.

I feel SVK will be harder to score on than in previous best on best tournaments thanks to improved goaltending and depth on defence. I am a believer that defence wins hockey and these improvements outweigh the increased age and decreased potency of the forwards.

The return of Zigmund Palffy to the national team may provide a morale boost to the team and even some secondary scoring. Likewise bringing young Tatar along and putting him on the fourth line might provide the forwards with a spark.
