They have started scouting the Czech Republic heavily the last several years wonder if they are rethinking that today.
It's completely up to the coach/selection committee who plays for the team. No NHL team has any say on what prospects play, nor should they. Both Stransky and Nedomlel deserve to be there, but the coach has every right to select the team he wants. Even if that team includes Milan Doudera.

No team is going to stop selecting players from a country because one of their prospects isn't being selected to the national team for a 5-7 game tournament. What sense would this make for Detroit?
