But Nagy is defintely OUT, so I dont know who will now be the 2nd LW.

But you are right: Stumpel-Palffy will be together for sure.
Coach Hossa said the top 3 lines will be:

Zednik-Stumpel-Palffy
Bartecko-Handzus-Satan
Gaborik-Demitra-Hossa

the 4th line will be decided later.

That slovakian foward Line up is clearly the best in the tournament. They almost have all of their big guns, looks more like an olympic line up.

Visnovsky Strbak
Majesky Suchy
Granak

I was watching a recap of the 1998 Stanley Cup Finals, and Zednik was prominent in that too (from a Caps perspective), as a rookie.

Damn, Obsut was one of my favorite players, too.

I'd say that's a pretty good lineup, though.. It'll depend on how the defense and Lasak plays.

Isn't that enough?

He was a force in the 2001-2002 playoffs.. But since then, Zednik doesnt play the game with the same efficiency.. He is'nt the same player at all... Kovalev and Koivu were his linemates last playoffs, I personnally think Zednik was'nt a factor.

He will have to play the game with fire again like he did 3 years ago.. If not, he will be passed in the depth chart by wingers like Perezhogin, Kostitsyn, Higgins, Ryder and maybe Hossa!

That is crap. Move the third line to the 1st line position, second line to third, and 1st line to second.

Gaborik-Demitra-Hossa
Zednik-Stumpel-Palffy
Bartecko-Handzus-Satan

The only problem is that there is no physicalilty outside of Handzus. If Canada plays to their full potential, the Slovaks are gonna be crushed in the physical department.

Obsut was always better than Vydareny when I saw them with the Moose and I find it hard to believe Rene has gotten THAT much better in the last season. His supposed "improved play" did not show in his stats in the Slovak league while Obsut was an elite defender in the superior SEL. I've been impressed with Obsut for a few years now. He should be a top 4 defender on Slovakias Olympic team nevermind worldcup. I suspect injury or some other unknown issues are the reason for Obsuts omission.

Too bad about Nagy too, but with or without Nagy and Obsut Slovakia truly looks like a Gold Medal threat. Probably more so now than ever.

He wasn't bad at all last playoffs. But all three of those guys played pretty hurt so you never know. But Zednik definitely plays his best when he's pissed off. See: 2002 playoffs.

Who will be in goal, Stana or Lasak? Or will they be sharing duty?

He had one good playoffs... after that, he wasn't the same player. Of everything in that post, that's the only thing I questioned.

Marcel Hossa and Radivojevic weren´t written to official roster yet. They will be written later. So 4th line looks like: Stefanka-Pucher-Orszagh.

In defense locked pairs are Chara-Lintner and Strbak-Visnovsky. If we will play with 6 dmen then 3rd pair will be Suchy-Majesky. If we´ll play with 8 dmen then IMO there will be Suchy-Granak and Majesky-Vydareny pairs. We will see tomorrow.

Clear nr. 1 in goal is Jan Lasak with Stana as back-up.

IMO, he should have made the team over Marcel Hossa.

Anyway, now with Majesky injured, Obsut will probably be called back up and signed on the roster come next group stage.

Defen. pairings yesterday:

Strbak-Visnovsky
Chara-Granak
Suchy-Majesky (later Lintner)
Vydareny-Lintner (later Chara)
