I had a hopes that Peter Hraško could make it to Germany, after being our best defender on WJC and hitting everything that moved his direction.

Hmm, Pravda has it like this: Budaj (Staňa) - Lintner, Graňák, Sekera, Ivan Majeský, Mihálik, Starosta - Bartovič, Kukumberg, Podkonický - Svatoš, Zagrapan, Čiernik - Dravecký, Bulík, S. Gron - M. Macho, Pánik, Zálešák - Tatar

Fruhauf, can´t be there since he isn´t o the roster IMO.

Budaj was expected, deffense couldn´t have been much different, but I don´t like the idea of Čiernik on our top 6 at all and even worse is the idea of breaking up Zagrapan and Pánik. Tell me again why would you want to break up the two players that clicked the best in the preparation games? And I would much rather see Zálešák as the 13th forward.

Anyone have any other photos of Budajs mask? I assume it's the same one he wore for the Olympics but we know it didn't get much ice time.

Great game and great performance by young slovak team.
I almost can not believe some parts of third period.

PIT-MON is not over yet, though it might be after today.

While I agree with you kajoo, jaro has as long as I remember never denied an invitation to the NT, I don´t know about any injuries he has right now (of course there will be some minor) and it seems like we are saving up a goaltender spot. We´ll see.

Jaro played 60+ games this season he deserves a rest when his PO´s adventure ends and I hope it doesn´t end tomorrow.

neither one is good, too complicated lyrics imo. Any footie/hockey anthem should be kept as simple as possible.

This one I´ve made for FKM Spartak Tlmače, I don´t say it´s beter or anything, but definitely not bad for a small town of 4300 souls. Heck I even had to sing because noone wanted to

Glen made it up though, I doubt that he has any idea what Spartak trnava is.

Though I think that: Jeden tím, jedna krajina, jeden cieľ- ZVÍŤAZIŤ sounded more poetic.

With USA being knocked out today and assuming a Slovak victory over Kazakhstan [though nothing should be assumed these days], Slovakia has a reasonable chance at making the quarterfinals. They would be in a group with Russia, Belarus, Finland, Denmark, and Germany. It is not out of the question that they could finish in the top four of that group. Denmark is not more talented than Belarus.

We´ve alreday played Germany prior to the WHC and both teams haven´t changed much players since then. Also Finland has struggled with us at the last two WHC, in 2008 we were milimeters away from tying them and in 2009 the game finished with a regular time tie, so with the lack of scoring effetivity from the Finns, we coul at least get a point from them. I think that Denmark has more individual talent than BLR. I believe that this team can challenge all of the teams that we could meet in the qualifying round.

However it is too soon for this and wee need to concentrate on Kazakhstan right now and play good hockey from 1st to 60th minute for once.
