Joe Pelletier seems to think Nedomansky was Slovak:

"One of the most under-appreciated and even unknown early greats of international hockey would have to the big Slovak star Vaclav Nedomansky."

Patrick Houda says "Vaclav was born in Hodonin, Czech Republic but his parents were Slovaks," but then says "Scouts and managers in the NHL were drooling over the 6'2" and 210 Ibs Slovak," referring to Nedomansky.

From wikipedia:

"He was born in Hodonin, in eastern Moravia in the present-day Czech Republic, but very close to the Slovak border. Today, he claims to feel more Slovak than Czech, having played in Bratislava." Unfortunately, the article doesn't have a cite.
