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!
It´s been discussed a few pages ago actually, Pálffy was not interested, And tbh 2010 Olympics were hardly a personal succes for him.
We´ll see. Games were not played yet, so chances are still relatively good to make it.
