And while it isn’t and IIHF organized tournament, it is an IIHF sanctioned event, which could mean that their national eligibilty rules are being followed.
Come to think of it, I haven’t even heard whether or not Nedved even expressed interest in playing in the tournament at all, or any tournament for that matter. Can anyone verify or contradict that?]]>
Very good Forwards. Good/Decent Goaltending. So-so- Blueline.
And the forwards I see, most of them aren’t very good two-way players.
On paper right now I’d rank the Czech’s tied at 4th with the US (*IF* Team USA doesn’t blow it by picking all the old guys again and goes a bit yougner), with Sweden, Canada, and Russia ahead of them 1-3 in that order.
