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.
51 Slovak players played at least one KHL game this season, which means that after Russian, Slovaks are 2nd most populous group in KHL. Another 49 are in Czech Extraliga, 5 in Elitserien, 4 in DEL, 2 in NLA (Swiss). Plus NHL, no idea on this season, but last season, 12 Slovaks were in NHL (3 of them are in KHL this seaosn, Chara/Sekerra/Visnovsky)

There is a plenty to choose from for one team, would be probably enough even for 2 teams.
