I think Hudler not being selected is the real story here.


A 42 yr old Petr Nedved was selected over him. lol


Hell even Vrbata didn't make it.

Someone who decided to chose the son-in-law of the coach.

 

http://www.mlive.com...t_flyout_sports

The Czechs selected six NHL defensemen: Radko Gudas (Tampa Bay), Zbynek Michalek (Phoenix), Michal Roszival (Chicago), Ladislav Smid (Edmonton) and Marek Zidlicky (New Jersey); two former established NHL defensemen: Tomas Kaberle (Kladno in Czech Republic) and Lukas Krajicek (Dynamo Minsk in Russia); and one ex-fringe NHL player: Michal Barinka (Vitkovice in Czech Republic).

 

Barinka, by many accounts, was a surprise selection. He reportedly is the son-in-law of the Czech team’s head coach, Alois Hadamczik.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

On a positive note, Sweden's coach confirmed Alfredsson will be on team Sweden.

Kindl hasn't played well so I'm not shocked by that, not taking Hudler although seems like a mistake.

Hudler not making it is more head scratching than Kindl not making it.

 

Either way awesome

I'm wondering if Russia is bribing officials at this point after ridiculous omissions on the US and Czech teams. Petr Nedved? Who played for Canada at one point? Mind boggling.

Actual exchange from CBS Sports comments regarding choices for the Czech Team:

How can they leave off Marian Hossa, a possible future Hall of famer?

 

 

Xenith

Probably because he is playing for Slovakia where he is actually from?

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Would be an amazing lineup if Czechoslovakia was still one country.  

 

Kind of like Yugoslavia's soccer team, if that country still existed.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Wow, that team's kind of a head-scratcher. Worth mentioning; Mrazek honestly seems like a glaring omission when you check (pun intended) out the backups they selected.

 

This team is pretty terrible. Good luck to them.


Rough as guts.

So Sobotka now can't play.  Who do they replace him with?? Hudler? Vrbata? Nope.

 

Martin Erat.

 

I really hope this team get embarrassed.  Their selection is a joke.

I think this confirms the anti-NHL theory. There's literally no other reason why they'd pick Martin Erat over Jiri Hudler. Hudler's something of a stud, Erat is a disaster who, one could argue, has been massively screwed over by his Evil Czech-Hating NHL Overlords. Czech Pride and whatnot. I guess.

 

Nedved, though - everyone really does just want to get with his wife.


Don't Toews me, bro!

@TheHockeyNews: The Czechs again overlooked Jiri Hudler and Radim Vrbata in favor of Martin Erat. Here's one theory why. http://t.co/9wXddzUaom
