as i know holik is an american citizen...if he is he can't be a czech citizen as well. czech republic doesn't allow double citizenship. it's funny thing if you are former czech and now you are a canadian for example you wanna go to czech republic you must apply for a visa... :lol

i don't think the holik is eligible for usa and czeck team at the same time...correct me if i'm wrong.

as for jagr thing...if i was a gm i would never invite him to any national team...ever

Havlat and Jagr played together at the Olympics and I think you would see them together again.

You are wrong. THe Czech republic allows for double citizenships as me and my family all have Czech and Canadian passports.

THe US on the other hand, i think, does not allow for double citizenship..



Anyways, I'm really disappointed to hear the Hamrlik, Lang, Straka, And Reichel are possibly not playing. The first three are vital members of the team while the latter is a proven int'l tourny player. If those four don't play then it will seriously hamper their chances of winning, which is sad because the Czech woudn't be sending their best team..

Both the Czech Republic and the US allow the double citizenship.
I know it because my dad is half Czech half American.

If that's not enough for you, then just remember that Fedorov is half American half Russian since 2001, and that in 2002 he played at the Olympics for Russia and nobody said anything. Why? Because everything is legal!

well, he played for the world championship team, so the world cup team can be no worse. Jagr will play, and like the worlds, he will play well.

I wouldn't consider not putting Sykora and Elias on a line together. Theres about as much chemistry as is possible between those two guys.

You'll never see Holik in an international match. He played for the Czech team when he was young, so he can't play on another international team. At the same time, he'll never play for Czech because he has severed ties with them.

At least that's the situation as I understand it.
