    Same here! Great defense.

    Now, who of the Czech A team isn't here? Elias, Lang, Hejduk, Slegr, Hasek, Reichel (he wasn't invited, right?). Who are the others?

    Reichel is not an 'a' list guy for them anymore imo.Havlat to me is the oversight.

    well havlat was given a chance, and apparently played like complete crap...so he was cut. In a short tournament, i guess you dont' want to have to wait for players to decide they want to play hard

    Is the word going around that he just played like he did'nt care if he was there or not?If so,yeah....i'd cut him too_On talent alone he should make the cut,talent does'nt always cut it though....ya gotta compete.

    Havlat played crap ALL season and the training camp of the national side only proved it. This year was just horrible for him and Růžička did the right thing by throwing him out. What I don´t understand is the absence of Erat and especially Bulis :madfire: But Hlaváč, who had a s.hitty season with Sparta, is there. Řučinský is also a surprise for me. He has´nt played for three months and is not 100% fit after a stomach injury. I don´t doubt his skills - he is a great player - but it is not that long ago that Růžička said he will only take in-form and healthy players :dunno: I have a feeling that their friendship played quite a role in his nomination.

    Who cares if Havlat played poorly he is the second most talented player after Jagr in the camp. You dont cut guys like that you bring them along until there game turns around. Thats like Nash having a bad year then Canada not picking him its stupid.

    Sure. That is your opinion. Keep it. But let me remind you that you have not seen him play. A sorry sight. Or have you?

    I think they did well by kicking Havlat out. This tourney is for players who are good NOW, not for players who will be good in a month/year/decade...

    The coach picks the best squad now to win, he doesnt pick players on the basis of talent or what they have done.

    Like i said, i don't think it's a good idea to "bring a guy along until their game turns around" in a short tournament. If we were talking about a complete hockey season, then yes...but can the czech team in this tournament afford to wait until Havlat gets his crap together? He's apparently played like this for awhile now so how long are they going to wait?
