For Vrana it would be perfect to play with Tomas Hertl and Dmitrij Jaskin at the upcoming U20 WCH, because only those two players (perhaps with Radek Faksa) will probably be able to make some pressure in the offensive zone against teams like Sweden or Finland. Especially with Hertl they could do a good job. Hertl is excellent one-to-one, reads the game well, but is much better passer than scorer and lacks some skating agressivity. Vrana on the other hand has a very good shot and skating "drive." They could work well together. Somewhere in 4th line, Vrana would spend much of his time in the Czech team's own zone and without the puck.
But we will see, perhaps whole team will make some serious surprise (but as I see the roster, it's going to be a baptism by fire for them all).
