They have a very high powered offensive team and could surprise some people. They are weak on the back end only Chara and Strbak being dominating defensively. And they are in Canada's group so we will see a lot of Zednik. I will be cheering for the Slovaks against the other teams, they are going to be a fun bunch to watch.
man, i don't see zednik playing any higher than the 4th line. maybe the 3rd, i guess. palffy, satan, hossa, gaborik, bondra, and nagy are all there as wingers. yikes. loubby visnovsky is a good d-man as well. he was murray's main man this past year in LA before getting injured against edmonton. that's a HUGE d though. chara, majesky and mezei... yikes.
lasak's been good in international play in net, but this is NHL rinks... hard to tell with him. he's their biggest question mark, no doubt.
