The WC is not a "reality" for the NHL - never has been and never will be so until some deals/fixes get done, this isn't going to change.
Thatīs ********. The WHC has been a starting point of an NHL career for many European players, Czechs included. Ľubo Viňovský might have never played a single NHL game if he hadnīt won a medal with Slovakia at the 2000 WHC and was then later drafted at 24 by Kings thanks to his performance. A few more players got drafted from that Slovak team that year.
Plus, this is not only about the NHL, it is also about the Czechs fans, they care about the WHC a zillion times more than about the NHL. Czech NHL "stars" shouldnīt be surprised if they abandon them at the OG next time.
