So it's time for Hudáček and Hamerlík (maybe Laco). It will be high pressure on them, but it's a chance to show up. Show must go on .
Typical Montreal.

Ride their golden boy to last place and let the Euro rot on the bench.

But Budaj isn't any-more the saviour as he was in Colorado in his best season. His performance is also only a mediocre.

So the boys lost 2-1 in a shootout to Russia last night in a shootout. Looked a pretty decent performance. Juraj Mikus continued his brilliant form for the NT with Slovakia's only goal. Laco played really well in goal as well.

Considering the amount of depth the Russians have, I'll take that result.

They lost 3-2 tonight in regulation. Two goals by Bartovic after the Russians went 3-0 up. Hamerlik played in goal this time.

I haven't seen Tatar since 2010 WC where he was quite good. Will be interesting to see what he can do now for sure.

I'm glad he's going. If anything it's experience.

He needs to start going so when 2014 comes around he's on the big team. I hope the other young guys can do the same.

Not really, it´s always "so much fun" with the Slovak NT.....it has yet to translate on ice....maybe because there´s way too much fun...

Yeah, in the last few years it always reminds me more barbecue party of old friends rather than teamwork on certain goal.

We could easily be the funniest team (in every sense of the word) in B division with such work-ethic.

If anyone´s intesrested that jerseys from SVK-NOR game (originally they were supposed to be worn in the SVK-CZE game earlier in April, but the Czech team forgot to pack their red jerseys, so they have a SVK-CZE patch sewed on them) that were created for the indution of Demitra into the Slovak hockey hall of fame are available to be auctioned here if anyone´s interested. Profits will go for Slovak youth hockey. I think this is the 3rd sets of NT jerseys to be auctioned for this purpose this season (Deutschland Cup jerseys were sold for 5860 euro and the ones from NT vs. Dukla Trenčín game for 6199 euro, the highest price was ofc payed for Pálffy´s jersey - 802 euro). Šatan´s from this game might come close though, already at 505 Euro.

Halak, Budaj

Chara - Visnovsky
Meszaros - Sekera
Baranka - Jurcina
(Granak)

Hossa - Kopecky - Gaborik
Tatar - Mikus - Panik
Jurco - Bliznak - Zaborsky
Bartovic - Handzus - Radivojevic
(Kytnar)

But this is only my wishlist, players like Marcel Hossa, Ruzicka, Cibak, Surovy, Nagy, Bartecko or Kudroc will be there sure, because they are indispensable for unknown reasons. Maybe Zednik as friend on the phone too.

Well Ruzicka and Cibak were cut from the NT for the Worlds, so I can't see how they would make the Olympics... I pray to god that they don't play for the NT agani.

My 2 cents are that The Slovakian league is nowhere near the AHL and the KHL in quality.

Visnovsky is the same case as Pallfy who retired from WCH in 2007-8 but went to Vancouver.
My gut feeling is Soci could be Lubo´s farewell with Olympics.

Juraj Mikus has played 3 seasons in AHL, currently in conference finals with Marlies.


Slovakia down the middle has no clear no 1 center. Handzus is too old and too slow for that job, lets face it. Viedensky has no enough experience, Mikus is not good enough for 1st line and Kopecky is better utilized at the wing. Surovy is 3rd liner who overachieved along Satan and Hudacek.
L. Hudaces is listed as RW/C. To me he seem as a guy who has the balls and with right development in 2 years might be the guy for 1st line.
Hrivik has had great play off in AHL this spring and by 2014 will have full AHL season under his belt. He is strong along the boards, fast and got very good shot.
Jurco; Tvrdon same as Hrivik plus they will get proper development from Detroit in GR. Miles ahead of soft euros i.e Zaborsky.

Jurcina, Kudroc, Sersen are pylons.
Baranka , Starosta, Vydareny are soft euros, just not good enough. Soci will be played on Euro size ice rink. Team will need mobile defence with some wheels aka Pietroangelo, McDonagh, Karlsson.

I think it got kinda lost in all the celebration and stuff but Vujtek did mention in an interview on TV yesterday something aliong the lines of "now we can build a new team for Sochi."

As for Višňovský, while he did retire, he did actually look like he was pretty sorry that he wasn´t there this year when he saw what was accomplished in Helsinki when he was in Markíza´s studio yesterday.

somehow i dont believe that Vujtek will give chance to players that declined invitations this year...we will see 70% of this team in Sochi too...

as of mobile defenseman...we played tight defensive style in which you need this "pylons" to clear the zone...so Jurcina, Kudroc, Chara are locks in Sochi...Granak got A on his chest this year so i believe that he will be there too...Sekera player helluva tournament so count with him too...

Marincin and Gernat are playing in juniors...still promising but without experience...

now offense...
Hrivik...his name i heard 1st time when i read that he was called to train with NYR...nice accomplishment but same as Marincin and Gernat
Handzus...if you think his speed is major problem then ok...get him fast wingers and problem solved...he will feed them with nice passes...Tatar and Bartovic as our version of TGV and we are done...one great line...then if we have free mikus then let him be center between Hossa and Kopecky...they have enough experience to pull him with them

Kopecky - Mikus - Hossa
Radivojevic - Surovy - Gaborik
Tatar - Handzus - Bartovic
Jurco - Bliznak - Hudacek
Satan will be somewhere there too cos i believe it will be his last great tournament
Panik maybe instead of Bartovic
Viedensky maybe instead of Bliznak
lets see who will be better that year

and last thing...if Visnovsky really seemed sorry that he wasnt there then it was only for one reason...he wanted to thank Demitra the same way Kopecky and Chara did...but we will see...if this was impuls for him to knock his motor up and continue in production as he has last year then why not...still love him for his character

I think Marinčin and Jurčo have the biggest chance from the kids still playing juniors as they are expected to be in the AHL next season. I believe Pánik will be there 100%, he already has WC experience, was with the team pre-WC last year (and has looked good both in 10 and 11) and would have been there this year if Norfolk was not in the play-offs. From Jurčo and Marinčin I guess Marinčin is the slightly likelier choice, because otherwise the deffense will be almost as old as our offense in 10´.

from what I've seen in this thread and this WC, I'd switch Handzus x Mikus, Tatar x Radivojevic. Tatar seems to be legit offensive threat, he should be better for that role on top 6 in 2 years I think. Mikus is ok, but I'm not sure if he's this good. I haven't seen all games though, more like 3-4.

i had him there but for reasons above i threw him to the 3rd line...
anyway if we forget on LW and RW then we can get Hossa and Gaborik on one line as they were playing on All Stars game in NHL where they were amazing

Gaborik - Handzus - Hossa
Radivojevic - Surovy - Kopecky
Tatar - Mikus - Bartovic (Hudacek)
Jurco - Bliznak - Panik

also if i remember right then Kopecky was in Chicago as Center with Hossa on RW so first line can br
Gaborik - Kopecky - Hossa

and then

Radivojevic - Handzus - Bartovic
Tatar - Mikus - Hudacek
Jurco - Bliznak - Panik

and dont know what to do with Satan, Nagy, Bartecko or Zednik
