Too bad Marian Hossa is not there. It seems you guys are talking about Slovakia getting younger, but was there no chance Ziggy Palffy was interesting in playing? I know he had retired from the NT, but he came back for the 2010 Olympics, thought maybe.

Slovakia has always been the country I cheer for outside of Canada, dating back to the Palffy (still have my Kings Palffy jersey, first one I ever got), Visnovsky, Demitra (), Marian Hossa, Chara, Gaborik, etc glory years of the early 2000's. Was in Bratislava last year a mere few days after the WC (really wanted to make it there for WC, just couldn't), great city, can't wait to go back. So Go Slovakia, hopefully they have a good showing and the Norwegians or Germans slip just a bit to get that automatic Oly berth!
