I see no reason why Z would say no.

I wouldn't be so pessimistic in your place, you just have to either:
a) finish just 1 place higher than Norway
OR
b) finish 3 places higher than Germany;
OR
c) finish 3 spots higher than Switzerland.

So to me it sounds like most likely you will end up in the top 9. Especially considering that Norway and Germany can't (most likely) *both* get a spot in the QFs. Plus, the Norwegians/Germans will have to face a Danish dream team, instead of France. And the mighty Latvians ofc. So, all in all, they have no chances of advancing.

Have you seen the team play recently? If yes, you would know that option A is the only one that we have any chance of achieving baring a miracle. I donīt know whether people have noticed but in the last few years we have hardly ever managed to finish ahead of either Switzerland or Germany, yet alone 3 positiions higher than either of them. And thereīs nothing about this team so far that suggest it should end up otherwise this season.

2008 We finished 13th, while Germany was 10th and Switzerland 7th
2009 We finished 10th, Switzerland 9th and Germany 15th, but I doubt Germany will suck this much at the WC this year
2010 We finished 12th, while Switzerland was 5th and Germany 4th
2011 We finished 10th, while Switzerland was 9th and Germany 7th

So, yeah, it would be a miracle if managed to finish 3 spots ahead of either Germany or Switzerland, especially with the team we have...

I hope you will get him, I can not think of another player who would be as important for his national team.

What is Chara's history? Has he come always when he's free and in full condition?

I sure hope Z comes. He can make the difference between complete failure and making the quarterfinals. Sekera always plays really well with him, so at least we would have a great defensive pair. Our offense is what scares me.

Yes. Chara is actually the most professional player with great character which I've seen in a while. His work-ethic and off-ice stuff reminds me Gretzky.
If he is healthy, he will be our captain.

Jesus, and just like that the slovaks have the best player of the tournament. Maybe you can beat out switzerland for that last QF spot?

That's like Khoklachev in the minors with a lacerated kidney, is that even an injury? It sounds extremely painful.

Lubomir Visnovsky has ended his career in national team and there is a quite high chance that he will retire this offseason.

Wow really? Considering he has a pretty nice paycheck to pick up next season and isn't that old, it would seem odd.

I think heīs gonna play out his contract (even though he has thought about retiring before it expires as begbee wrote), but after that I think he will most likely retire.

Coach Vujtek for "hokejportal" in March: " Stumpel is too old, I want to play with younger players." When he saw Cibak as 1st line center against Denmark, he immediately call Stumpel. Stumpel told him: "Sorry coach, I finished season some weeks ago and I am on Florida with my family."
It is shame, because he was ready to play for national team this season and although 40 years old still one class better player than Cibak and company.

When Boston`s medical staff evaluates his physical condition (broken nose & cheek).

He definitely wants to go.
