    Unless there is something im not aware off, Cizikas centers Eakin and Ashton, while Johansen centers Kassian and Foligno. Also, Connolly is the 13th forward, not Howden

    Yes! I get to watch this one tomorrow!

    Go Czechs! Rooting hard for Horak and Frk.

    Official streams: TSN.ca, RDS.ca. Both should work in the czech republic.
    Unofficial streams: there are a few in the first post, incase any americans, swedes, finns, or russians want to watch. Everyone else should be able to use the higher quality tsn feed.


    Go Canada. I'm looking for solid defensive play. Cut down on the giveaways, backcheck better, keep shots to the outside.

    Go Canada!

    Czech hockey fans: I don't really know these guys. Who should I be watching? Frk has gotten a lot of attention around here lately; who else?

    Good thing is that Mazanec didn't allow any goals against Norway. Hopefully our D will be able to help him in this game.

    I think you should be watching just Frk. Besides him also Columbus, Detroit, Ottawa and NYR fans can follow their prospects on the team and that's probably all (from NHL potential perspective).

    Holik is also an interesting player, though probably not NHL potential. Looking forward to this game, should be fun to watch!

    I like Holik a lot, but his game would be probably completely killed in the NHL because of his size.

    I don't know much about the Czech team but I heard that Nestrašil is a player to watch. Also Horak being a draft pick of the Red Wings must mean something as well. Hoping for a good fast paced game. Go Canada!

    Horak is NYR pick. Doesn't matter that much though.

    Frk is obviously the main guy you're gonna want to watch.

    Horak is my homer pick as well. He's been great for Chilliwack so far this season.

    I've seen Chilliwack a couple times this year and Horak is a really good player.

    Ondrej Palat plays with Sean Couturier, and I know he's been ripping up the Q.

    Sorry. You're right. Nestrasil is a Red Wing pick. I got the two mixed up.

    It looks like a lot of the Canadian players are finally starting to find their role on the team. They finally have a 1st line in Kassian-Johansen-Foligno, an excellent shutdown center in Couturier and an energy 4th line center in Cizikas.

    I think they should roll with:
    Kassian-Johansen-Foligno
    Schwartz-Schenn-Connolly (I think Connolly is a better fit with them than Leblanc)
    Eakin-Couturier-Leblanc (Leblanc had great chemistry with Leblanc in camp)
    Hamilton-Cizikas-Howden (Hamilton and Howden have been more consistent than Ashton IMO)
    Ashton

    Horak(drafted by NYR, playing in WHL), Palat(3rd in scoring in QMJHL), Mazanec(goalie, playing in Czech elite league), Petr Straka(most points for a rookie in QMJHL last year, though he regressed this year), Nestrasil(QMJHL).
    Czechs are missing Musil(likely top5 draft pick this year), Jaskin(playing in Czech elite as 17years old) and others.
    This should be a easy win for Canada....
    Czechs might win if they will play defensive game in front of their goalie, they do not have fenough firepower as Canada :(

    No point in mentioning missing guys. Yeah, they are good, but Canada is missing Hall, Seguin and few more... we're playing with these guys we have in Buffalo and nothing else matters.

    Point is that Czechs don't have enough depth to replace them as Canada. So it hurts more ;]
    Anyway, here is to good, fast, high scoring game :handclap:
     
  22. Let's go Czechs!

    Fun fact: There are more QMJHL players on the Czech team than on the Canadian team !

    Frk, Straka, Culek, Palat, Nestrasil vs Roy, Couturier, Leblanc, Després
     
  24. ^ That is rather interesting.

    What happened to Hrbas? Didn't make the team? I was looking forward to seeing some Oil Kings at this tournament.
