Today I was looking at the World Cup of Hockey roster for 2004 and my goodness, what a team. 21 current (at the time) NHL players.



F Lubos Bartecko Kezmarok, Slovakia Sparta Praha
F Peter Bondra Lutsk, Ukraine Ottawa Senators
G Peter Budaj Banská Bystrica, Slovakia Colorado Avalanche
D Zdeno Chára Trenčín, Slovakia Ottawa Senators
F Pavol Demitra Dubnica, Slovakia St. Louis Blues
F Marián Gáborík Trenčín, Slovakia Minnesota Wild
F Michal Handzuš Banská Bystrica, Slovakia Philadelphia Flyers
F Miroslav Hlinka Kladno, Czech Republic HC Zlín
F Marián Hossa Stara Lubovna, Slovakia Ottawa Senators
G Ján Lašák Zvolen, Slovakia HC Moeller Pardubice
D Richard Lintner Trenčín, Slovakia Djurgĺrdens IF
D Ivan Majeský Banská Bystrica, Slovakia Atlanta Thrashers
D Branislav Mezei Nitra, Slovakia Florida Panthers
F Ladislav Nagy Saca, Slovakia Phoenix Coyotes
D Jaroslav Obšut Prešov, Slovakia Vancouver Canucks
F Vladimír Országh Banská Bystrica, Slovakia Nashville Predators
F Žigmund Pálffy Skalica, Slovakia Los Angeles Kings
F Bran Radivojević Piešťany, Slovakia Philadelphia Flyers
F Miroslav Šatan Topoľčany, Slovakia Buffalo Sabres
D Radovan Somík Martin, Slovakia Philadelphia Flyers
G Rastislav Staňa Košice, Slovakia Washington Capitals
F Jozef Stümpel Nitra, Slovakia Los Angeles Kings
D Radoslav Suchý Kezmarok, Slovakia Phoenix Coyotes
D Ľubo Višňovský Topoľčany, Slovakia Los Angeles Kings
F Richard Zedník Bystrica, Slovakia Montreal Canadiens

Too bad it was probably the worst team ever. 0-4 with 4 goals for, 18 against. Too be fair the other teams were stacked as well and our Pool was Canada, USA, and Russia.

This roster is not correct. Zigmund Palffy was not there. Peter Bondra wasn't there either. Your roster is missing Martin Cibak who was one of the few bright spots for SVK, as well as Richard Pavlikovsky.

My brother and I went to the 5-2 loss to Russia. I remember Bryzgalov being quite good. In the third period when their lead was comfortable, the Russian coach gave a lot of ice time to the very young Alexander Ovechkin who went on to score his first goal with the Russian National Team.

From what I remember, Jan Filc brought with him 9 defenseman, and insisted on using all 9 of them. Not only that but he was using them equally. So like Visnovsky would get as much time as any other Dman. Ladislav Cierny was feeding Alexei Kovalev pucks all night and Richard Lintner was the cause of a Yashin shorthanded goal.

Well, I really think J.Filc got his act together for the Olympics: Six defenceman, one of Chara or Visnovsky on the ice for 45 minutes of the game. I liked his balanced forward lines. I liked how some of his innovations were then used by NHL coaches later on in the season:

1. Using Handzus not only on the PK (where he is a monster), but also planting him in front of the net on the PP. He had 5 pts in 6 games for Los Angeles in the first round, with most coming on the powerplay.

2. Using Demitra on the point on the PP. It worked for Vancouver versus Los Angeles, Pavol was 3+2/+4 in the first round of the playoffs.

3. Putting Kopecky with Hossa on the top line. Worked for SVK, and for CHI.

It is interesting that Glen Hanlon mentions system a lot. In practice with SVK he could be heard screaming "system! system!". Now Tampa hires the new young hot-shot coach Guy Boucher. In his opening press conference he says "I don't coach systems, I coach players". Hope SVK hasn't pegged their hopes on a guy who time has already passed by.

F Marek Slovák from Nitra will also take part in the camo according to Nitra´s website.

Some real nice pics of Budajs mask from this past Feb. Love Ned on there. Wonder if he watches the English or 'Simpsonovi'.

Finally realized that the crest on the top of the mask was from Banská Bystrica.







Does anyone know what the other flag is on there? That's the 3rd logo on the Avalanche, but I can't recall that flag.

The training camp for the Slovak NT hopefuls has began today. There has been one more change today as Erik Čaládi from Nitra replaced Matej Češík from Banská Bystrica due to an injury.

Also training with them is Andrej Meszároš, who usually practises with the Slovakia U20 team during the off-season, but they are travelling to Switzerland because of the U20 Sumer Challenge this week.

With the Deutschland Cup approaching Glen Hanlon has finished his visit to Russia and the Czech republic. He said that at the DC we can expect 7 players from Slovak Extraliga (2Gs,3Ds and 2FWs) as well as players from Czech extraliga. Jozef Stumpel and Pavol Demitra are expected to take part in the February tournament in Slovakia, so I guess that means that they are planning on playing at the WHC unless an injury. Also, Miro Šatan recently said that he is leaning towrads playing the season in Europe although there was the possibility he could join Boston in December just like last year. Also, Hanlon said that at the February tournament he already wants to have the IHWC team together. I consider this a radical improvment over our old IHWC philosophy- just throw some Euros together and sit and wait until they are replaced by NHL players. Of course it is probably also caused by the fact that there are almost no NHL players to replace the Europeans. That´s not to say that the NHL players won´t be welcomed if available and willing to play. I personally would not even protest against a return of Tatar and Pánik next year and maybe ven try Marinčin and Jurčo if they keep up and have a great WJC. The IHWC in Slovakia is once in a life time opportunity and I would say that giving such an opportunity to the kids might not only be motivating in the rest of their careers, but when they have in mind in the future that they were given this chance, they might think twice before refusing the jersey with the double cross. I think by now everyone has realized that this tournament will be the good-bye for one generation (ok, 2nd good bye after Vancouver 2010), but why not make it a welcome party for the next generation as well?

Btw, regarding the players from SVK Extraliga who will get invited to the DC, I´d say the goalies are Konrád and Hudáček (though I´m not sure he´s already recovered from his injury) and one of the forwards will deifnitely be Roman Tománek, no idea about the others.

Apparently he didn't visit Finland since Tomas Zaborsky didn't get an invite. He's so far 10 points in 6 games in the SM-Liiga. Good thing as an Ässät fan though that he didn't make it, there's always an injury hazard in these meaningless national team tours.

Also +8(!) in those games not being scored on once while on even streght. And well since it didn't really bother Zabo that he didn't get invited, because he knows it's such a small sample from him this season, I don't feel bad for him either. Oh and I agree that a injury to one of the most important players in the team at the moment wouldn't be that neat.

Well, I don´t know about it....of course I´m hoping he will be there in December, but considering how he is performing right now I would much rather see him on there than 30 old year Czech leaguers who´ve never been anything than average on the NT and in some cases even in the Czech league, let´s be honest is there any chance that they will actually make it to the WHC with it being played in Slovakia and everyone wanting to play there unlike other recent years?.......I was expecting to see a bit different roster, but I´ll reserve my judgement until we´ll see the games......

Huh, a Canadian Rauman Lukko -fan who follows Slovakian hockey..?

About Zaborsky, he has been a bit cold recently after dominating for the first ten or so games, but still, seems kinda odd that Hanlon wouldn't give Zaborsky a look especially when he was so close to making the team last season (some even think he should've made team Slovakia). Surely it couldn't be that Hanlon is already convinced and Zabbo is a lock to the WC2011 team?? I doubt this is the case since there are guys like Svatos and Nagy in this Switzerland's tournament that should be locks to the WC already..?

Surely it couldn't be that Hanlon is already convinced and Zabbo is a lock to the WC2011 team?? I doubt this is the case since there are guys like Svatos and Nagy in this Switzerland's tournament that should be locks to the WC already..?
Hanlon want to call the best possible european roster for home tournament in February. There will be players like Stumpel, Demitra, Bartecko, Satan (nowadays 5-game contract with Slovan), Zednik (free agent, both still could move do NA). I guess only these 5 players and Marcel Hossa are locked to WC 2011 (except NHL players of course).
Hanlon didn't take Zaborsky in 2010 because there was no spot in first two lines for him. This year will be roster more stronger.

And yet there were numerous weaker players than Zabo both at the WHC and at all games played since, not only on the bottom 6, but also on the top 6 (let´s not even speak about players who can only dream about playing at the top division of the IHWC). If he doesn´t even get a chance before the IHWC, then Hanlon or somebody else at SZĽH quite obviously has some problem with him.

Im also missing both goalies from Czech Extraleague - Peter Hamerlik and Michal Valent. Both have great numbers (Valent 91,96 %, Hamerlik 93,29 %) so why not to give them a chance? Especially by Hamerlik. He is a clear numero uno in Trinec, who is leading the table.

Looking forward to seeing how Hudacek does in a Slovakia jersey. I'm sure a number of KHL teams will be looking closely at his performances especially after his last three seasons with Kosice.
