Haha, nice pics, I like it. I was actually going to use the Visnovsky one (or something similiar) but I wanted a game jersey pic
. Visnovsky is one of my favourite players of all time (along with Palffy (my favourite player of all-time), Gaborik, Chara, Demitra, Bondra it's why I am a Slovak and Slovan fan
What is so impressive about Slovan is the progress of the youngsters. Hudacek, Stastny and Dano is particular have impressed me. Not the top players on the team obviously, but contributing very effectively for young guys, nice to finally see some young talent coming through the Slovak system, it was a rough period for high end offensive talent for a while, which is traditionally had been a strength. Solid young players. Obviously Janus has been unreal as well.
I was looking through some rosters as well, it's impressive how much Slovan is relying on Slovaks and being so successful. Not that many others on the team, when compared to say Lev, which has nearly as many Slovaks as Czech players among a bunch of other "import" players, yet has not had Slovan's success. That truly is special to see. Imagine if Zaborsky (I know not very popular among Slovak fans right now
), Hossa, Surovy, Chara and all the others had signed back home in Slovan as well
Slovak hockey really seems to be rebounding, IMO, and Slovan is the proof, what they are doing without many of the Slovak stars.
