That's sort of what I was getting at previously when I asked about who Holecek was competing against for notoriety in this league...
The difference between top team (first Brno, than Jihlava) was smaller than in Soviet league, but was still big enough to give them 1st spot most of the time. Other teams had national team member here and there (neither Dzurilla nor Holecek played for those powerhouse teams). They had chance to win first spot (atleast those that were just bellow nr1 team), but it was usually surprise.

Also there were no play-offs most of the time, which made it easier for stacked team to win.
