Jakub Stepanek was never drafted ( I agree that he's a good goalie, but I'm not sure he's NHL ready. There was some interest from scouts for him at the end of IHWC 2009, but he decided to stay in Vikovice. IMO Marek Schwarz is a better goaltender, he made some phenomenal stops against Finland and Russia this year in the EHT. At any rate, it'll be interesting to see how he'll do in tomorrow's Extraliga final vs Dominik Hasek, in an important battle of generations. I think Pardubice are favourites for the title.
