@TheHockeyNews: The Czechs again overlooked Jiri Hudler and Radim Vrbata in favor of Martin Erat. Here's one theory why. http://t.co/9wXddzUaom
I don't buy it. I think they're basing it entirely on past performances. Hence Cervenka in the top 6 and Nedved on the team.
I do agree they chose Erat because they believe he's a better defensive player and skater and he will play in the bottom 6.
"The leader must never close the gap between himself and the group. If he does, he is no longer what he must be. He must walk a tightrope between the consent he must win and the control he must exert."
When asked who won, Babcock said, “Well it doesn’t really matter as long as you don’t lose. It’s like going bear hunting, you take a slow guy with you in case the bear is hungry.”
