Its all about money. The travel cost are pretty high and every team from Slovakia has money issues. Therefore the only one logical answer is Slovan Bratislava.
Fair enough. Maybe someday they can set up a central Europe "division"/league in MHL that will play like WHL-OHL-QMJHL with other Russian divisions. Have like 3-4 CZE teams, 2-3 SVK teams, and teams from AUS, GER, HUN, CRO, SLV or even BLR/LAT/POL/UKR to complete the league. I think that is kinda the idea the KHL/MHL is driving towards, being a European version of CHL. Just spitballing though, ways to keep Slovaks developing back home without them having to be phenoms like Dano that can make KHL at 17, since I am not sold that the CHL is the proper way to develop many prospects.
