For Slovakia Cibák´s not even with the team anymore and I doubt that anyone sane would give Hossa the A for the actual WC if they have witnessed him in the last few games, he´s hit a psychologic low, wouldn´t be good for the team at all. It has not been 100% confirmed that Chára will get the C (though it is expected that he will). Šatan wore the C during last tournament, so if Chára get´s the C, he will at leats get an A. From the other players Radivojevič often wear the A, but Domink Graňák has been the teams captain during the season, so he might be a more likely choice.

Ville Peltonen is not playing for Finland. Also I've got some doubts that Jokinen wears "A" in his chest.

Koivu is the captain for sure but the A's should be Väänänen and Filppula or Jokinen, imo.

I doubt that, as he will probably be slotted on the 3rd/4th line.
I think we might see Frans Nielsen pull on the C

EDIT: Scratch that, I think you might be right

By the looks of things...

C - Koivu
A - Kukkonen
A - Kapanen

Väänänen might be an option for A as well, but if Jalonen sticks to the "line of succession", that's the trio.

Czechs:
Plekanec - C
Novotny - A
Nedved - A

I personally favored Novotny to be a captain because he's better leader in my opinion. Normally Rolinek would be a captain but he's injured.

I'd love to see Komarov getting an A, he has the right attitude in every shift.

Getzlaf and Perry didn't play in the exhibition games, correct? I'm guessing of them will be captain (although Sharp is a good choice too).

Great to see Lando getting an "A", he could become the new Mats Sundin for the swedish NT.
