No Juraj Simek?.
Simek plays for Switzerland, not Slovakia.
he is Swiss.
It looks like Mikus will play both offense and defense
there are 2 different Juraj Mikus, the Habs prospect (forward) and the one eligible for this years NHL entry draft (defence).
There was a thread on the Canadiens forum a few weeks back that stated that we should draft the other Mikus just for kicks.
How does team stack up against the rest of the competition? I'm hopeful that they are competitive, since the quality of Slovak hockey has increased by leaps and bounds. At Grand Forks 2 years ago, the Slovaks were handily defeated by Canada, but several players really emerged from that tournament (Meszaros, Valabik, Lascek, Ruzicka, Zagrapan and Halak) because they played very well. How does this team even stack up with that team from 2 years ago in the States?
Really looking for to watch david skokan at the wjc
any guesses on line combinatins?
