Nedved still plays?  Wow. 

 

Czech don't even make it out of the group stage with that team...

Yes! Finally have a team to root for... I'll follow Team USA and see what happens, but I don't really like them.

I was hoping Jagr and Elias could get some rest during the Olympics, they are not the youngest any more

I thought the eact same thing.  It feels like it's been 10 years since he last played in the NHL.

Yeah Jiri Hudler is a bit of a snub given the year he's having and some of the non-NHL'ers that are on the roster.

This is the last kick at the can for some of these older guys and likely for this national team as a whole for the foreseeable future. Other than a couple young guys, they don't have many promising players coming up on the horizon to replace the vets.

Surprised to see no Vrbata considering the year he's having as well.

Knew he was going, but I'd have loved to see Jagr get some rest. Also, with the age of some of that team, why not just dust Hasek off?
