took his place. Niko Hovinen will represent Finland, however, and Jakub Kovar has been called upon by the Czech team (other former Flyers/Phantoms playing will be Petr Nedved, Lukas Kaspar, Nikolay Zherdev, Ossi Väänänen and Lasse Kukkonen).
Viktor Fasht is also 30 years old. I see where Renberg is coming from though. People forget that Eriksson is only 21 years old. Now that the Flyers have a few spots available for a contract, I hope they do right and sign Eriksson asap.
