I don´t know how I´d feel robbing Budaj of the No. 1 job with Halák comming in, Peter saved our butts in all games. As much as I love Jaro.

I think most of us Slovak fans wish for both of them to do well- Halák with Montreal and Budaj with Slovakia. Plus what Jaro is doing right now is a much greater propagation of Slovakia then the WHC, it was really great to see Habs fans chanting Halák in the streets of Montreal or a guy with a Slovak halák jersey on screaming that he loves Halák and Slovakia on our TV.

GO HABS GO!!

after DEN game we have 3 off days before back-to-back games with Finns and Germans.

We better win tomorrow because if we screw the game with Finns we could be missing energy for Germans, and we all know how the Germans don´t suit us.

I don't get to see the games. Has anyone noticed Tomas Tatar out there much? What are your impressions of him so far?

That´s from last year 0-8 isn´t it? Nah, I like the Chuck Norris in Danish jersey joke better. I don´t think it is time to seriously get worried just now. Danes played incredibly the first 10 minutes and we forgot to show up just like in all games before btw. And we did what Slovakia usually does, taking stupid penalties. You can hardly expect a team that gets scored 3 goals on 3 shots come back. IMO right now we are just as the beginning of the road, while the Danes are finally getting something from their work. Let them have their dream. If we lose to them like this in 2014, then I ´ll be really pissed. Plus one game does not mean anything just yet and I believe the guys needed a slap into the face like this, cuz because of the results they were starting to live in an illusion of how great they played, even though all the games could have ended diferently if our opponents were actually able to use our huge mistakes on deffense. Plus, what is the difference in losing by one goal or by 6? Remember the Olympics semifinals, there was this one team that almost tied Canada in the last seconds and this other team that got blown out by the silver medeal winner, remember which one was the one with the bronze medal games on their day the next day?

Personally, I would not want to be in Peter Bondra´s shoes right now. What is he gonna call them and say: "Sorry, guys, that really gotta suck, but you comming to save our ass at the Worlds? Would be best if you played Monday against the Finns already..."

I feel somewhat responsible for the 6-0 first period. I watched the game 24 hours after it happened as I was unable to see it live. I was all excited and ready to watch the game, I had snacks prepared and everything. But in my life, whatever can go possibly wrong actually does go wrong, so after waiting 24 hours to see the game it is no surprise that Slovakia re-writes the national team record book on worst ever period in the 17 year history of the team.

I must say I don't find the loss overly troubling. First of all Denmark is a good team. The wins over Finland and USA were not flukes. I was especially impressed by Peter Regin. He seemed to me to be the best player on the ice. Secondly, the game happened 18 hours after the Slovak victory over Kazakhstan. That is just too short a time to recover. Thirdly team Slovakia has teenagers, and Hanlon gives them a lot of time on the ice. When the team uses Peter Fruhauf at forward it can't be taken overly seriously.

I couldn't help noticing that Dominik Granak was on the ice for 4 of 6 Danish goals. Captain Richard Lintner was on the ice for 3 of them. Using Richard Lintner to kill penalties, sorry Glen but that is like flying an Airbus 330 over a volcano. In fact the only Slovak defenseman that shouldn't hang their head in shame was the Slovak MOTM Andrej Sekera and he is one of the young guys that will still be a part of this team a decade from now.

I definitely wouldn´t blame this on the young guys, well maybe those two penalties for each Pánik and Tatar in the first. However Bulík played only like 4 minutes in the game, Tatar less than 10. Pánik played 20, but he kept trying all the time and Dravecký with around 16 was tied for the lead in SOG with 6. I can blame Sekera for something he comitted two fouls in like 3 minutes at the start of the second, which led to a Danish 5-3. (Podkonický got called for the 1st one, probably because of jersey numbers 14 and 24)

The problem in our deffense is that our supposed leader Citrón has always been know more than a forward than a deffensmen. It´s totally disorganized there and there just is noone on the team, who would or better said could take care of it.

Kamzik, wanna join me in sending a tape of those first 15 minutes to Zdeno Chára and a telegraphe with:
Look STOP
Please STOP
Help STOP

Where would you put Satan in the line-up? I think I would try Bartovic-Podkonicky-Satan, move Panik back with Zagrapan and Svatos. Leave Tatar-Bulik-Dravecky, and have Ciernik with Kukumberg and Macho.

I think having Šatan play with Tatar and Pánik would be kinda fitting, you know like Šatan and Pálffy with Peter šťastný in the 1994 Olympics.

I wonder whether Glen will leave Lintner with the C still, it´s kinda eird having on the team without the C when Chára isn´t there.

He’s referring to a chant that was made popular by Slovakia's WCH teams of early 2000s. It goes something like - Slovenskóóó, Slovenskóóo, hey yah, hey yah, hey yah, Slovensko. Sounds stupid like this, you'd have to hear it.

Also your translation is a bit flawed. Normálne in this case is an adjective, so the translation is something like - You're right, that was no Slovakiaaa (from the chant), just normal Slovakia.

There is no way that Hanlon will change captains in the middle of a tournament. I doubt Miro would accept anyhow. It is just something you can't do and still retain your credibility.

As for your suggested line, that is fine. It would mean using Satan at centre which he can play. Panik played centre for Windsor but he prefers wing (more specificially RW). I think Satan is at his best when he is playing with a puck distributing centre like David Krejci. Slovakia doesn't have anyone like that so putting him between Tatar and Panik would be decent.

Yeah, you´re right, But it´s just weird seeing Miro there without the C. Btw he will arrive tomorrow and play on Monday. He originally wanted to take a day off, but said that we might not have anything to play for by then.
