So it's only about the money these days...or friends? Dunno. I thought that Czechs hate Russians.


Political animosities aren't everything and there are other things that play a role too. BTW as far as I know the Finnish have a quite a history with the Russians too, dont they?

According to the cited article, Hudler has been promised to center their first line. This, imho, was much more important for him, although there are other factors: money, distance to Czech Republic, larger rink favors skilled players, ...

This is something I don't know for sure, but am pretty confident about. Not sure if anyone will care...

The 'r' in Jiří is the same as the one in Neckář so his first name is pronounced more like Yirzhi/Yirshi than Yiri. Any Czechs out there who can confirm this? My knowledge of Czech is essentially restricted to ordering beers whenever I'm in Prague.



You're right on every count.

"ř" is among the rarest sounds in all languages, I once read in the Guiness Book of Records that it exists only in Czech and in some Chinese dialect. And it can be likened to "rzh" merged and pronounced as one sound. Foreign speakers of Czech have a hell of a time trying to learn it laugh.gif
