Maybe I expect too much from him, but coaches do exactly the same thing. True is that he is pushed into role, which he is not ready for. He is not ready to be top six guy in national team yet. He can lead team in EHT, but not in WC or OG.

It doesn't, it was just my opinion.

Well, EHT level is one thing, but playing first line against for example team Finland (which was under 25yrs in most of the tour) and playing first line against team Canada in WC is other thing.

I admire what he did in EHT and in regular season of KHL.

Head coach decided to invite also Martin Ševc of Färjestad and give him quick try out tonight against Sweden, because not all D-men are 100% ok right now.

He'll also call Prospal tonight to ask him about his participation.

Ševc was pretty good tonight, he made a lot of great decisions during the game. I really hope he will be in the WC.

Too bad Vrána is out, he was solid.

I'd take him, but there is no room other than on the 4th line. He was ok there, so let be it and put him on PP if something doesn't work out.

my lines right now:

Michálek-Eliáš-Havlát
- Michálek was good in the last game, Havlát not so good, but I expect him to get better with better linemates and more of icetime. I think it could work.
Průcha-Červenka-Jágr
- this line was ok the whole CHG, no reason to change something.
Rolinek-Marek-Voráček
- this one is my favourite and I think it shoudn't be splitted without some really serious reason.
Novotný-Klepiš-Růžička
... 13th and 14th forward Koukal and Vampola.

I'd release Hubáček and Vondrka.

Pretty good. I agree with all names except Klepiš. He was nothing special on Czech Hockey Games. I liked Vampola, Hubáček and Vondrka more. Especially Vondrka really surprised me. Too bad Koukal didn´t get more ice time. But this is going to be really close, those 5 players are equally good.
And don´t forget Plekanec/Krejčí.. I think they still have one spot reserved.
Since they are both centers I guess it would be something like this:

Eliáš- Krejčí/Plekanec - Havlát
Průcha - Červenka - Jágr
Rolinek - Marek - Voráček
Michálek - Novotný - Růžička

So do I. I didnt expect anything from Vondrka and he played well. I am not a big fan of Klepiš, but I must admit that he always surprises me. He is good when he is "well used".

I hope that rumoured lineup is just a joke, lol! Can somebody explain me what Hadamczik is trying to do with putting Havlat on the 4th line in the last game and possibly next game? If he's going to play him on the 4th line with Hubáček, it looks to me like he probably wants to discourage him from joining NT for the rest of his career

I was very surprised too. I mean, Havlat isn't playing well in the national team for a while, but assigning him in fourth line? I would also try him with Elias and Michalek. He shloud at least try it against Canada. Sometimes Hadamczik decisions make me really confused.

Unfortunately it is not. But it is likely that he may put Elias and Havlat together during the course of the game. It is also possible that he is deliberately trying to piss Havlat off by putting him in line 4 and make him work really hard to show he deserves to be in line 1/2. In any case, if Hadamczik wants him in line 4 he may as well cut him from the roster because he is no use there at all. Which would be a shame, but I can understand that his patience is running out (even thought he's only played 2 games....)

Ševc is out as well. I think he was good though. Btw. Kovář, Nakládal and Frolík are going for their first WHC.

Shame about Ševc, I thought he was good too? Very surprised by Frolik, I would have taken Ruzicka. Nakládal is a solid D so no surprises there.

Just thinking about it, it could be quite nice to see Frolik and Voracek in one line together I seem to remember them playing well together in the U-20 WJC in 2008. But the Voracek-Marek-Rolinek line is good so no need to destroy it.

I hope Nakládal will play top6 minutes, I liked him better than Krajicek or Skoula And I am surprised, Hadamczik has done a good job building this WC team. Hopefully Boston lose tonight. A) I dont like the Bruins, B) I doubt Hamrlik or Spacek would join the team.

He's done good job. I have him above Krajíček too right now. With 1 more center and Dman from Bos-Mtl series this team is pretty good.

Well, I think neither Hamrlik nor Spacek would join the team, but who knows.
There is still possibility that Z.Michalek would come, isn´t it?

Anyway.. I really like this team.
Good decision about Ruzicka, he is not guy for 3. or 4. line. It was pretty surprise though.
I also like Frolik in the team.

Didn't Hadamczik say that he is not interested in Frolik?

Plekanec is probably the only one worthy of an invite; Spacek and Hamrlik are question marks.

He is better than Spacek and Hamrlik. Spacek and Hamrlik are, at best, stand-bys in case players like Michalek turn down invites.

z. michalek I think has to come for you guys.. you don't really have a legit top 4 guy(zidlicky maybe, but he's mostly a offensive guy with questionable d) Z. michalek+ Plekanec would solidify czech as one of the favorites for gold imo.
