Almost a zero in North America. Testimony of his own coaches actions.1976 Canada Cup, Karel Gut pulled him faster than even Mike Keenan pulled his goalies.
Your first sentence suggests that you've got a fair portrayal of Holecek's domestic career (otherwise, how would you know that it's unfair) (You also make it sound like it was done deliberately).

What information (facts, not opinions) do you feel has been held back about his domestic career?
