Yeah I wonder too. Seemed a decent team before the game against Swiss. Something has gone wrong psychologically I guess

Don't underestimate the Austrians, they have been pretty darn good offensively in this tournament, despite the lopsided losses. But yes, unfortunately Slovakia hasn't been producing a lot of talent lately. Tatar and Panik are great, but two guys don't make a team.

Lets not sell Marek Viedensky short, either. His play in this tournament has been great in my mind.

Oops, sorry about that! It felt like I had missed someone, but I must confess I'm not overly familiar with this Slovakian team. Hadn't heard about him before the tournament started.

Yes i definetely saw that when they played against Finland and looking at scores against other teams i can definetely see that again

But seriously its great if they are playing great and will continue that next year if they manage to get a win from this.

Well... they scored 3 goals against Sweden, so they can certainly score 3 against Slovakia.

Speaking of which, Slovakia just scored. D'oh!

Not sure how to describe him other than awkward for my liking.

That said, the shot he got off after the Slovak faceoff win to make it 3-2 was fantastic.

Bad break for Austria, who while shorthanded pulled the goalie to make it five skaters aside. The linesman blows the play down thinking Austria has too many men on the ice, forcing the faceoff to come to centre ice and pushing Hirn back between the pipes. All with just half a minute left.

Well at least the streak of never being relegated since we got to the top division continues (most likely).

Now that is what i call lowering standards for success Now donīt take it the wrong way. I am doing the same for the Czech team...It is just black humor to help out. It is really sad where Slovak and Czech hockey is these days. And will stay there for years to come Hopefully something will be done by the new Czech federation soon...but that still means that even if something positive is done we will not see the outcome until 4-5 years in the future...minimum! So, letīs stick to the low success standards shall we?

It most definitely is way more unusual standard for you guys than us, IMO weīve been playing in the relegation round almost every year ever since weīve made it to the top division, except like three or four times at most. Even our first tourney between the elite we were playing in the relegation round after losing a 4-0 lead against you. And there were way better players playing there than this yaer and Iīd say even way superior to those that actually won a bronze medal in this tourney. IMO that team had Visnovsky, Podhradsky, Hossa, Handzus, Orszagh, Zednik and etc. compared to the 1999 team where the only significant player that still is doing something is Gaborik and well there was Nagy, but he has wasted his talent to a big extent and Lasak. This tourney and itīs importance IS overrated , because a great goalie can get you into the top 4 just like Switzerland this year. While of course there is many things wrong with hockey over here, a succes in this tournament is very far from proving that something got significantly better.
