Now that the 2009-10 season is in the history books, I think it was a very memorable year for Slovak hockey. A season that won't soon be forgotten:
1. The 2010 Olympics. That was so much fun. Wins over Latvia, Russia, and then Norway and Sweden in the knock-out stages. Demitra stopped by Roberto Luongo in the dying moments in the SF versus Canada. These players made a great name for Slovak hockey, I was very proud.
2. Hossa + Kopecky win the Stanley Cup.
3. Jaroslav Halak and his amazing playoff run with the Montreal Canadiens.
4. Great individual playoff performances from Miro Satan and Michal Handzus.
5. Rising stars at the World Championships. A disappointing performance but who cares? It was an Olympic year and what matters was that two of the best players on the team were teenagers.
I think next year will be just as exciting! SVK hosts the World Championships! Will Marian Gaborik score 50? Will Jaro Halak stay in Montreal? Riso Panik & Tomas Jurco together at the World Juniors. Marek Tvrdon with a chance to dominate the U18s. Year two for Tomas Tatar in the AHL. Another year of development for the very promising 1995 crop. Should be great.
