I have always liked Julius Hudacek and hopes he gets a chance. He only played one of the eight pre-tournament exhibitions though (Hamerlik started 4 and Laco 3). I like how there isn't a clear number 1 and the goalies will be pushing each other a little.
The other thing I like about this team is the combination of size and speed on the defence. In terms of criticisms, I feel this team is very weak at centre. I do like though how each line will provide a little bit of offence.
Re goaltending: Yeah, it´s interesting. But we won´t know until the WC whether it´s interesting in a good way.
Ther emight be no clear No.1, but Hudáček was handed the No.3 position after the one game and won´t even be on the roster in case St. Louis loses against LA.
