But this winter i think 5th place would be an accomplishment. But you never know.. still a great team with a respectable defense. The only REAL concern would be goaltending. But I think they are going to be good enough to have a chance against USA, Sweden, or Finland.
I agree with you about Zacha. I watched a few of his games (video) and am really impressed by him. His only weakness right now is his skating, which actually is not that bad if you compare him to other young Czech players coming up. But his vision, hockey sense, and passing is elite, his strength and shot is at the pro level. Really excited about him and I am certain he will be on the team (his commitment to staying home and where he is headed right now are big pluses, that and he really is better than most of the 94's, one could even say he is better than all the 94's without being nuts)
