This year they're not going to be able to replace the holes left by graduated players. Who will replace the star power of Hertl, Frk, Musil, Jaskin and Bartosak? Or the grit and leadership of Sedlak and speed of Hyka?

Faksa is really going to have to lead this team and Langhamer will have to play out of his mind in goal if this team wants to have a chance. I can see a 5th place finish, but nothing more.
Yeah for sure. It's not that strong of a team. But will be for the next few years. With the likes of vrana, pastrnak, karabacek, zacha, pyrochta, vladar... I mean the list goes on of upcoming talents. They are going to be better then last years group. A lot better in my opinion.. But it will be interesting to see some of them play on this years team. I think vrana, pastrnak, and zacha are guarantees.. But yeah... 5th place is likely.
