The Czechs won't get close to 15+ this year. The only European nation that will get 15+ is Sweden. Will be interesting to see how many domestic Czechs are drafted.

I'd also hardly call there World Juniors incredible. They didn't get to the medal round and relied heavily upon Mrazek. It speaks volumes about where the Czech development currently is if we are discussing that performance to be "incredible", especially considering ten years ago they were U-20 champions.

Gotta give some credit to Czechexpert, who whilst can be pretty blunt and rarely goes into extensive detail, does seem to identify the situation and the good players very well. He seems to predict who the good players are before its common knowledge (I remember he liked Bartschi before he went to the CHL), the same with Faksa this year.

Aren't the 95's supposed to be really weak? I think i remember reading several times that it is considered the real bottom of the curve.
