    So, I have not been able to see any of the games so far. I want to know who the best players on their respective teams have been and why.

    Thanks in advance for your opinions.

    Slovakia: Uram.

    Surprising that its like that as he was cut from the team, said he would never play for SVK again and was called back the next day after Nagy rejected the offer to go.

    In fact, its sad that he is the best player on a team with Hossa, Demitra etc.

    Whats Uram's past history? What was the reason he was cut, anything in particular? What type of player is he?

    His history is that he played most of his career in the Czech Republic.
    He was cut cause he is a player ONLY for the scoring lines, he really cant defend and with the thought of Nagy coming, he was cut but then he was called back.
    He is a player who is good in the offensive zone but due to being small and weak, he aint good along the boards or in the defensive zone.

    he'd played ever good in czech league, but he'd never been called to Slovak national team in the past (so as Peter Pucher)

    as for germany, michael wolf and michael hackert looked the best in my opinion and i'd give the edge to wolf.

    Lasse Kukkonen's been Finland's most (OK...only) consistent player thus far.

    For USA Stastny has played very well, but I think it would be a mistake not to mention Stempniak as well. Seems he's had a very good tournament.

    There is a "C" in the finnish language. We have all the same letters that you have in Canada plus 3 more scandinavian ones.
    Swedes spell Canada with a "K" too.
    "C" is used in the swedish language more as a soft letter like in the word "circus" and such while "K" is used when it's Kukkonen :)biglaugh: ) or such. If you understand the difference. In the finnish language "C" is though rarely used and often replaced with "S" or "K" depending on what situation.
    Hopefully I haven't completely confused you by now with my nearly nonsense rambling in the middle of the night. 2.42 AM over here ;)

    Canada is spelled with a K in pretty much every language except engl/french, i guess. All slavian languages like russian spell it with a K, same with german.

    They spell Canada with a "K" (Kanada) in just about every non-english-speaking -country in Europe.
