The forward group is the best, at least depth wise, the Czech's have ever had IMO. It may lack a prime Jagr and Elias but overall is a very strong group. However, the D corps may be among the weakest...lacking a true #1 puck mover.

Another issue is always the coach, who may feel inclined to take players from Europe....for no reason at all really. And cervenka is a likely candidate for this exact reason even though he was poor last year in the nhl. The large ice is no issue as every one of the above players grew up playing on it and most of them have past WC/olympic experience.
