2011 is shaping out to be a pretty good draft for the Czechs (despite no 1st rounder), the biggest number of players drafted since 2006. EDIT: Make that 2005.
My guess is that the reason slavia didnt apply is because they only have one ice rink available for juniors and kids, they are actually just one of three teams in extraliga that doesnt have 2 or three rinks for everyday use. I think that this was one of the conditions to get the academy status. Also, with the number of young players cracking their A team, they seem to do just fine w/o the academy status.
