Very surprised with Laco.

Looks like we'll run Halak, Budaj, and Laco at the OG.

Not sure about Budaj. At the time he could be out of NHL. He rapidly loses his reputation.

proud on boys, and props to Vujtek who is one fantastic coach. I had no expectations after the years of suffering, but this year Im pleased by teams display and spirit, and last but not least, results.

Janus? I think not yet. 2018 probably, if development goes as expected.

depends on his development. If he makes it to back-up goalie in Tampa within 2 years, he will make Slovakia team as Nr.3. We have only one NHL-calibre goalie (Halak) and one washed up back-up in Montreal (Budaj), if Laco does well in KHL he could be projected as Nr.2. Stana/Lasak are still KHL-calibre goelies but their days in NT are imo over.

you never know what can happen, see Holtby story. Janus can make it NHL sooner than expected.

So what's the deal with this crossover in the semi-finals? Are we going to have to play Russia, rather than the winner of Finland & the States?

1H-4H vs 2S-3S
2H-3H vs 1S-4S


So, we are going to play against winner of Sweden-Czech.

Of course, it would be weird if you couldn't meet the other group until the finals. QFs were played within the same group probably to save one trip between two countries (Helsinki-Stockholm).

Oh good. I'd rather not have a piece of Russia any sooner than we have to...

Ah, maybe... Not playing the other group/conference/league until the finals is par for the course in North American sports, so I wouldn't find it that odd...

Allways rooting for Slovakia after Finland!! Having visited most of all big cities in central europe and toured pretty much all of east and west coast the city that had most charm was Bratislava, even though its not the most beautiful or biggest of them..
