Didn't start following WC play until about 04.
Nedved could not play for Czech Republic until now because he played for Canada in the 94 Olympics and was playing in the NHL until 2007, he has spent the last 5 seasons in the Czech league and must have been there long enough for citizenship thus making him eligible and he was able to play in this year's WC's.

Holik has only ever played for Czech Republic/Czechoslovakia but the last time he did so was 1996, not sure why he didn't after that, he certainly was eligible.
