    ...but Gomez wasn't in the NHL until year 2000? Unless he was playing for the '98 US Olympic team (I can't remember)?

    Read the whole column, it's a joke.
     
  5. As much as Holik's citizenship does make him an "adopted American" as he put it, I still will always think of him as a Czech.

    The same with Nedved regarding his Canadian citizenship.

    I just hope that the Czech Republic swallow hard and name Holik, although I could understand if they feel somewhat dissed by Holik's desire to play for Team U.S.A.
     

  6. This article begins to not make a lot of sense.

    Just random stuff thrown into one article.

    Is this article a fake?

    Or did Larry Brooks just have a bunch of brainfarts?

    I don't understand what doesn't make sense to some of you. Brooks feels that it's politics that kept Holik and Gomez off the US roster. I wouldn't be surprised in the least. A lot of people complain about USA Hockey's politics.
