    The Atlantic region can't really come close to making a team that is even fully staffed by NHLers. Strangely the region has three elite players, one all star level player, and then nothing of value. Canada East becomes team Quebec with a much needed infusion of elite talent up front.

    That second team would have a hard time. If you spread them evenly they would be more competitive.

    The Atlantic region has a population of under 2.5 million. The fact that Quebec is so weak is mind boggling. They have a population somewhere between that of Finland and Sweden and would not fare well in a 7 game series against either team. It has to be a grassroots issue. Can anyone here from QUE attest to that?

    Taking annual hosting turns mostly over the Atlantic, renders Bonafide Games to Canada, USA, Europe, Asia and the NHLPA.

    i) Mere 32-Team Playoffs
    ii) 4 groups of 4, with 1+2 progressors and 60 min matches, also make every game matter for the Championship
    iii) Mere 8-Nation Round-Robin under World League every 5 years, or alternatively the 5 Rings

    Otherwise, fan lockout at arenas and TV audiences every Dec. will pressure into True World Championships for our world sport.

    Well, I at least like the 60 minute match idea.

    Halak is the best czechoslovak goaltender in the league and the most experienced of course. Panik could be there (4th line). Marincin out, Cernak in.

    Not saying that it can't happen. The tournament would most likely happen on NA ice though against a much tougher roster.

    Can not read that mistakes in spelling some of the Cze-players... Faska it means Faksa, Nicas is nickname for Nečas, and of course Pasternak means Pastrňák.

    Funny is that, Jachym Kondelik is on Germany list. he has played WJC-20 for Czech team.

    The separation was rather unpopular at the time and had there been a vote most people in both countries would have opposed it. Joining Slovakia with Hungary would be significantly more controversial.
