You would be hard pressed to keep Chara out of the lineup. A strong case could be made for Hossa as well.

You do know who are on these rosters right? I mean, this is a real question? You do know there is a lot of talent on these teams? Slovakia has the most lethal offense out of any country. Palffy, Hossa, Bondra, Satan, Visnovsky, Chara, Demetra, Handzus, Zednik...

I am going to watch Canada vs USA and Canada vs Slvk. I think Canada will beat USA quite easily, BUT I am worried about the Slovaks, they look good. Their only lesser point in Defense depth and goaltending. Firepower upfront is sick !

Jaromir Jagr
Marian Hossa
Milan Hedjuk
Zdeno Chara

would almost certainly make it. Others would be possible as well.

yeah, Brodeur is going to have to stand on his head in the Slovakia match.

I am quite concerned about the Slovaks. Slovaks don't quit, I liken them to the LA Kings when it comes to resiliency and such. The Slovaks are weak in goal and Visnovsky and Chara will both probably have to play 30 minutes (I'm sure Muckler and Dave Taylor won't be too happy), but the name of the game is to win, and if they are playing 7-6 games, I like the Slovaks to win that game.

I'm not too high on the USA's aspects. I did not make my official predictions yet, that will come when rosters are finalized, but I don't like what I see from the USA, although I also didn't like the USA in 2002 so who knows...

Chara, Elias and Hossa would certainly make it.

And maybe Palffy if he had a 90 point season behind him.

Oh, ok.


You said 'would any' make the team I was assuming you wondered if there was anyone on either team who would make it, period, not who

The Slovaks will certainly be dangerous but there downfall will be there goaltending imo. Playing on the smaller ice surfaces here isn't going to help that at all.

For as bad as Slovakia's goaltending is, Lasak has certainly stolen the show quite often. He's consistently been top 5 or so in the WC's in the past two seasons in such categories like save percentage and GAA and Slovakia was ranked #2 last year in goalkeeper efficiency. He led them to a gold in 2002. Slovakia's weakness (compared to their forward crop) might be their goaltending. But it has proven up to the challenge recently.

Robert Lang? Had he played the same amount of games as St. Louis...they would've tied for the Art Ross.
