I will try.

Forwards:
Patrik Elias - David Krejci - Jakub Voracek
Milan Michalek - Tomas Plekanec - Jaromir Jagr
Tomas Fleischmann - Martin Hanzal - Jiri Tlusty
Martin Erat - Vladimir Sobotka - Radim Vrbata

[Ales Hemsky, Petr Koukal, Roman Cervenka, Martin Havlat, Michael Frolik, Jiri Hudler, Tomas Hertl, Petr Prucha, Jiri Novotny, Jakub Petruzalek, Jakub Klepis, Martin Ruzicka ... ]

We will see how injuries goes and in which pace players will be in one year.

- If Tomas Hertl makes NHL next season he might be very interesting option for team since he's probably the most talented young player in the Czech republic, keep eye on him.
- If Jaromir Jagr will be willing to play on the Olympics, Roman Cervenka should be in the line-up. It'd be good to see once again line: Cervenka - Plekanec - Jagr which had very good success during World championship 2011. Cervenka is playing his best hockey on european ice size.

Defense will be most likely mixed of these players:
Marek Zidlicky
Jan Hejda
Ladislav Smid
Rostislav Klesla
Jakub Kindl
Roman Polak
Zbynek Michalek
Petr Caslava
Jakub Nakladal
Tomas Kaberle (maybe czech team will need him, he's still good puck-moving Dmen and for PP the only one who's like him in czech team is Zidlicky and that's not enough, but obviously if he won't play in NHL and will remain as a healthy scratch there's no chance for him)

Young players in D who might make big impact in one year:
Tomas Kundratek
Radko Gudas

Goalies:
Ondrej Pavelec
Alexander Salak
Petr Mrazek

It does'nt matter. This team could win the gold medal if everything goes right. Just look at the 1998 edition aside from Hasek and Jagr who by the way was far from a dominant offensive force on that team. If anything is a weakness it's the defensemen, but if i'm not wrong the czechs characteristic counterattacking game highly involves their forwards driving the play, the defensemen is mainly there to defend and maybe make a short quick pass to a forward. Not only are the czechs very good at playing this game, they also have to.

This is absolutely ridiculous. We can compete with that line-up against anyone of the teams you mentioned, we always were able to compete and we are still going to be able to compete in the upcoming years.

I'm really shocked when I still see someone who's not mentioning Czech republic among the Canada, Russia, Sweden, USA and Finland. One of the best teams when it comes to the medals in like past 17 years and then I'm not even mentioning the times when we were Czechoslovakia.

Just to let you know:

Czech republic since 1996 at WCH:

1996 - Gold
1997 - Bronze
1998 - Bronze
1999 - Gold
2000 - Gold
2001 - Gold
2005 - Gold
2006 - Silver
2010 - Gold
2011 - Bronze
2012 - Bronze

+ Gold at 1998 Olympics and Bronze at 2006 Olympics.

Still not enough for someone to consider Czech republic as one of the strongest hockey countries? Ridiculous.

Need to mention one great thing. Since 1981 we are the only one country which were able to complete a 'Golden Hat Trick' last country in that time (1981) was USSR. As you can see we did it in years 99', 00', 01'. And in the next years, in 2005, we stopped in the finals Canada at that time they won 2 gold medals in a row and they were about to complete that Hat Trick but lost to us in the finals and failed it. And then we did same thing to Russia in 2010. Kinda impressive and funny.

^ Not mentioning that WCH and Olympics are (in fact) about 3 games... QF, SF and the Final. Every one of the top 6 can win those three games in my opinion...

I highly doubt Kaberle or Kuba make the team. They have both been terrible this season.

I agree with Kaberle. He's far beyond his peek now. But Kuba just suffer with the rest of Panthers imo. If he played in Ottawa, it would be a different story. But I could be wrong, we can't know it for sure.

Jaromir Jagr - David Krejci - Jakub Voracek
Milan Michalek - Tomas Fleischmann - Ales Hemsky
Martin Erat - Martin Hanzal - Martin Havlat
Jiri Tilusty - Vladimir Sobotka - Radim Vrbata

This is not who I expect to be there. This is just the team I would like to watch the most. I hate Plekaneks and I hate his turtleneck. I also don't really like Elias. I know they are good players and will most likely be on the team.

I feel that Tlusty should be playing more minutes then he will on the fourth line. The best scorer in Hurricanes this season (21, 9th place overall), acting like a power forward in the offensive zone and great defense. Just a great player in every way.

You're not allowed to not like Elias. He will be on the team.

Pleks is a lock though.

Send a message via ICQ to cibtom
Tlusty - Plekanec - Jagr
Elias - Krejci - Voracek
M. Michalek - Hudler - Hemsky
Sobotka (Frolik) - Hanzal - Erat
Hertl

Vrbata and Fleishmann didn't play well at World Championship. I think guys like Sobotka or Frolik will be in the team because they can play in the fourth line better than Havlat or Fleishmann. I'm not sure about Hudler. There's also a lot of players in Europe like Rolinek, Novotny, Cervenka, Prucha, ...

Zidlicky - Polak
Rozsival - Z. Michalek
Smid - Kindl
Gudas

Maybe Tomas Kaberle...

Pavelec
Salak
Mrazek

Unless Vokoun has retired from the National Team, I would be very surprised if he's not at least there in a backup role. The guy is still a very good goalie and is much better than Salak and Mrazek.

Elias-Krejci-Voracek
Michalek-Plekanec-Jagr
Fleischmann-Hanzal-Vrbata
Erat-Sobotka-Tlusty
Havlat-Cervenka-Hemsky

Hejda-Michalek

He has retired. He said so before the World Championship. And he won't be even at the olympics. He said he'd be glad to be with his family during the games.

Glad to see Ladislav Smid get some recognition later in this thread. He doesnt have a lot of offense to his game but he is a fast and physical defenseman. His advanced stats really favour him

Would they consider a line of Fleischmann - Krejci - Hemsky?

Michalek - Plekanec 'A' - Vrbata
Erat - Fleischmann - Jagr 'A'

Smid 'A' - Michalek
Kindl - Klesla
Zidlicky - Polak
Kaberle (PP specialist), Hejda

Vokoun
Neuvirth
Pavelec

PP1
Elias - Krejci - Voracek

PP2
Michalek - Plekanec - Vrbata
Kaberle - Hemsky

PK1
Elias - Hanzal - Hemsky
Smid - Michalek

PK2
Erat - Plekanec - Havlat

yep, I'm bored

The forward group is the best, at least depth wise, the Czech's have ever had IMO. It may lack a prime Jagr and Elias but overall is a very strong group. However, the D corps may be among the weakest...lacking a true #1 puck mover.

Another issue is always the coach, who may feel inclined to take players from Europe....for no reason at all really. And cervenka is a likely candidate for this exact reason even though he was poor last year in the nhl. The large ice is no issue as every one of the above players grew up playing on it and most of them have past WC/olympic experience.
