They are not scoring, because they are playing against full senior teams, games are about defence, defence and defence.
Both goaltenders are locked - Nagy and Romancik. Third could be
Defence outside U20 league team - Ceresnak was already invited to camp,
have serious chances, but both nothing special.
Forwards were already mentioned.
Strange how you mention Koys and Paulovic have no chance slovakinextone? I would think they have more value than many other eligibles. Hmm interesting, yes what I did notice is that many of the players on this team have played in Slovak u-20 league and were pretty good producers compared to many juniors overseas who put up modest to low stats in u18 leagues and left. But if the main focus is defence how do you evaluate who can contribute offence for your team. After all the team who wins is the team who scores the most goals !
