Zyryankin appears to have been in his 20s when he wrote this series in 2001, so it's not a contemporary European perspective on Holecek, but it is at least a European perspective.

Here's the piece on the best of the 80s, including Tretiak.

And the same for the 1950s/60s.

Thanks for posting this. Just for reference, here are their best players in the World Championships of the 1970s: Jiri Holecek, Valeri Vasiliev, Frantisek Pospisil, Boris Mikhailov, Alexander Maltsev, Vladimir Martinec

Of the 1980s: Vladislav Tretiak, Slava Fetisov, Alexei Kasatonov, Sergei Makarov, Igor Larionov, Vladimir Krutov

Of the 1950s/60s: Seth Martin, Nicholas Sologubov, Alexander Ragulin, Anatoli Firsov, Tumba Johnasson, Vsevolod Bobrov

Seems very reasonable.
