The team U20 will be playing also the next season. But in 2010/2011 the league is going to have only ten teams, so the project will probably end.

In Trenčín the players have the individual training in the summer, with the tests every month. This is not very usual here - mostly teams are preparing for the new season in summer together.

Radim Tesařík (http://www.eurohockey.net/players/show_player.cgi?serial=4649) signed with HC Slovan Bratislava for three years. "He is our new Pavlas. We agreed for three years and I am glad we have got czech representation player, skilled defenseman, very good also for power-plays,“ said manager Maroš Krajči for hcslovan.sk.

For all what we know project has been so far successfull so I don´t see a reason for it´s eding. Most likely it will be relegated into the 2nd division.

yeah, we will see. this project has got some pros and cons, I am sure that szlh will talk about it and there will be a "to be continued" version after the next season ;)
even if this won't be SO successfull - but money are there, and so people which got business there will not want to end with it...

Kosice have signed a 31 years old Swede Henrik Hoglund. http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=892

Have they agreed on a new contract for Turek yet?
I hope that Tatar stays in Zvolen at least for an another year, with Hvila´s departure I´d love to see him and Michal Chovan play together.
Another Czechs/ guys from French/Norwegian league joining them, I´d say that most of them is gonna leave Zvolen before the season even starts. I hope that after last years succes with Tatar, Valach and Daloga, the quartet from last years U20 will get their chance, Marcinek already looked good in the few appaerances last year, definitely better than Jurik.

The 39 years old referee from Kosice Peter Orszag who had been previously voted the best referee in Slovak Extraliga for the 2007/2008 season has been chosen as the referee for the WC final. He is just the 2nd Slovak ref to get this honour, 14 years after Anton Danko has been there for the WC final in 1994.

Lol, at least we have someone in the finals, does it remind anyone about football and Lubos Michel?

when the club wants to keep boy at home, it would not give a chance to him to go there. like Adam Lapšanský last year in Poprad. but I am sure that Košice "don't need" them so they will play in the repre team.

I don't know about Filip's new contract, all informations I gave are from that article about summer trainings.
about young - I really hope I will have a chance to see Haas playing. I know him from the last two years of junior league and he is one of these who am I interested in. but that was also Puliš - and where is he now...
Vlado Kubus - he is very good player when he has got a good day! he was one of the best in play-off against Slovan in 06/07, the sad thing about him is, that he has got problems with health, in Poprad it was especially problems with his knees.
another thing about Zvolen - as I am not only ordinary fan, but I am "behind" also - Arne Kroták is there. I have got informations he has signed a contract there, but it is not official yet. we will see...

Yes, I know about that, but in Kosice it would be more likely that the guy would end up in Puchov after two-three months just like Adam Bezak from Slovan last season did rather than play regularly like Lapsansky in Poprad or Tatar, Valach in Zvolen. Btw talking about juniors, is there anything true about the rumours that Julo Hudacek´s younger brother Libor has signed in Slovan?

About Pulis, wasn´t he injured most of last season? Last I heard he was confirmed to return to North America and play for Bathurst of the QMJHL next season.

Krotak sounds like a good buy for Zvolen, but that brings up a new question, will hockey be played in Poprad next season at all? I mean I still keep on hearing about the players who left from there and nothing about the team itself.

I agree with you. They should make it to the quarterfinals at the WC through Switzerland and then they´ll just have to upset Sweden/Russia or maybe Finland:c150:

But seriously now, Kristin was named the best goalie at the Tyumen tournie and he seemed capable to me from the little I´ve seen of him with Zvolen, so the most important position in the team looks good.

Btw about Ciliak, how did they get him from Brno? I mean the Czech teams are not obligated to send their players to Puchov, at leats that is what I remember Mikes saying when he wanted to get Panik over last year.

I just have a bad feeling that some of these players will go the CHL route:c089:

which played in Extraliga this year? (cuz I can tell you about many great from U20 league ;) young players are my special matter!)
well, I can see Tomáš Tatar there, that's good, he's the guy...
talking about Poprad - I think Michael Vandas is very good, same with Samuel Mlynarovič, we've got also Matúš Paločko and Richard Ficko, but Vandas and Samo are much better. but these two are 91 and 90 - 1987 is Marcel Haščák and Dávid Buc, 1988 is Dávid Skokan.
what about Matej Češík, played for Bystrica this season. and Michal Šiarnik, the goalie from Mikuláš. you have written something about some talented guys which have played in Zvolen last year (Valach, Chovan, Ďaloga, Marcinek), in Nitra played also Martin Baran - well known from the first league where he is known for his talent for goals. same about Juraj Ďurkech - but this name I am writing just because I know him from the last seasons in junior extraleague, he was the best defender in Trenčín in the games I have seen.
Kežmarok - Patrik Svitana. pulled down in Poprad, rising star in KK...
plus Trenčín, Vyletelka is my fave same as Tybor, Ďurkech, Jarábek, Radulay, Trefný and Ďuriš - from last seasons I have seen them in junior league. I think 1987 is the goalie Vlado Kováč.
so, have a look and think about that ;)

Kristín is one of the best goalies in his age category - I remember first time I have seen him in match - you know, there's the thought that goalies are crazy - and Matej is the craziest from all I know! I was laughing when I saw what is he doing while not playing - talking with himself, yelling at the other guys, the movements, plus, he is so great in his job!

dunno about Čiliak - I'll ask one agent I know if he know something about this. maybe they just will not need him anymore :))) maybe his contract is over in Brno and so he is here now... really don't know!

Only Extraliga, because I don´t really follow the U20 Extraliga much, though I guess I should. Btw since you´re following the juniors so much, what is your opinion of the Kosice 92 bron players Martin Marincin and Tomas Jurco?

this is new for me - don't know anything about that. Libor has got a great season and also year before he was playing good, and Slovan is changing the team... hm, but with so young player? well, that's is quite a surprise to me!
about Slovan - Dávid Skokan signed there

the match I have seen him - I didn't know anything about Puliš before - he was just def. I wrote a note about him to my notes, cuz it's something like my job, and never seen him again. few months ago someone asked me if I know Puliš which is doing good in NHL pre-draft schedules. and I checked my notes and that was a surprise to me, that I have seen him. so - I don't know him, just that he is good. he has to be if he is abroad ;)

the truth in Poprad is - that everything is dead here. as I know many about this, I could talk to you hours about it. plus I've got something in common... but I won't write it here
everything I can say is this: we lost sponsor, the president left, and it looks like he signed players just for his last season, so there will be noone when he leave. "po nás potopa", you know?
we have got just five signed players - Marcel Haščák (which signed for 5 years when he was going from the junior to seniors), Adam Lapšanský (3+2 while going from U20 to extraliga), Dávid Buc, Ján Brejčák and Patrik Bakoš. plus juniors, but Vojsovič and Mlynarovič will play in HK Orange 20.
and we have got Tibor Turan. which is the reason why these signed players - and those who left - want's to leave. I know, dear Turan, it is very hard to hear, but it is true!!! :c239:

Martin Marinčin - well, I know personally his brother and that is why when I have seen Marinčin on ice, I was looking on Vlado more than Martin. but I have to say, this one has really good shot from the blue line. I didn't have many chances to see him, but his stats are good

and Tomáš Jurčo - I don't know if it is possible to write something bad about him ;) he deserves every good word said

I have written all I know about Slovan ("the new Pavlas", reconstruction, D. Skokan) and Poprad (all signed players and so)

now from the
HK Nitra
they had problems with goalies last seasons, and that's why they signed Vlastimil Lakosil (last season in Martin) and Marek Laco (last season in Spišská Nová Ves).
http://www.hkmnr.sk/index.php?cmd=clanok&cislo=2002

HK 36 Skalica
two-years contract signed forward René Jarolín (last seasons in Poprad). the same-long contract signed also Martin Falter, the goalie (five seasons in Liptovský Mikuláš).
http://hk36skalica.sk/index.php?cmd=clanok&cislo=725

Dukla Trenčín
after last season there were nine players without contract (Hála- Homer, Fatyka, Urban - Nemec, Kútny, Kóňa, Nedorost, a Haščák). with some of them the club was talking or will talk about the new, some of them left. so who is no more player of Dukla - Miroslav Hála, Ján Homer, Vladimír Nemec, Martina Trochta.
Patrik Valčák, Martin Paroulek and David Kudělka will stay.
http://hkdukla.sk/index.php?cmd=clanok&cislo=788

MsHK Žilina
the team for the summer training
goalies: Miroslav Lipovský, Jakub Beňo, Lukáš Lizák

the most interesting is definitely Miroslav Hlinka (last season in Chomutov, CZ).
another: forward Martin Drotár (Kežmarok), defensive - Marek Kolba and Miroslav Vantroba (both Martin)

about Slovan - Dávid Skokan signed there



About Slovan, well it is interesting to see them rebuilding them all young, that is unusual. I even read somewhere that Konrad will be the starter, though I have not heard about Hovi leaving.

Btw about Slovan, do you know whether Martin Stajnoch is in their plans or is he returning to Puchov??

HC 05 Banská Bystrica
the most interesting is definitely Miroslav Hlinka (last season in Chomutov, CZ).
another: forward Martin Drotár (Kežmarok), defensive - Marek Kolba and Miroslav Vantroba (both Martin)
http://www.hc05.sk/index.php?cmd=clanok&cislo=178

I think there is one even more interesting, Vlado Orsagh is training individually and he´s planning his comeback for season, though if he doesn´t make it, it´s over, this is the last try, so I hope it play out okay for him.:c150:

Martin Marinčin - well, I know personally his brother and that is why when I have seen Marinčin on ice, I was looking on Vlado more than Martin. but I have to say, this one has really good shot from the blue line. I didn't have many chances to see him, but his stats are good

and Tomáš Jurčo - I don't know if it is possible to write something bad about him ;) he deserves every good word said

thanks for the info:)

Well about Jurco, could you tell me the good stuff then?? Like what kind of player is and what his future potential might be. Thanks.

he is what we were missing in past WCH - scorer. I am sorry for everybody - and I will translate it if someone wants - I'll write it in Slovak - Tomáš je na svoj vek veľmi vyspelý, dobre drží puk, prehľad v hre a celkom dobre korčuľuje. disciplínovaný, hoci drzý :) produktivita hovorí veľa - v doraste za päť zápasov 13 bodov (8+5), na +/- 16/3, v juniorke medzi chalanmi staršími jednoznačne diktoval tempo (spolu s Belušárom), teda aspoň v zápasoch ktoré som videla ja. chalan je ročník 92 a vezmi si, že v tom tíme hrávajú zväčša od 88 do 90... má radosť z hokeja, myslím že jeho veľkou devízou do budúcnosti je práve to, že vie strieľať góly. uvidíme, ako s tým naloží, veľa hráčov prekvapí v doraste či juniorke a potom sa stratí, ja mu veľmi držím palce...

Out of 14 players whose contracts ran out last season, Jan Lipiansky is confirmed to stay, but Miro Lazo is on his way to Russia and Sasu Hovi won´t be back in Slovan next season as well, so Branislav Konrad will be the starter and they´re currently looking for a back-up for him. Also some juniors should be training with the team, but for some reason the full roster was not released yet.

Interesting news about Janus, I guess if he signed for Slovan he would get the No.1 job? I man he is better than Konrad. But I think thhat when Janus gets drafted, he probably won´t be staying in Slovakia.

HK Ardo Nitra
They have signed F Juraj Gracik from Slovan and D Vladimir Vlk from Banska Bystrica. They also have agreed on new contracts with forwards Henrik Ruckay, Jakub Rumpel and Albin Podstavek, while Martin Vozdecky is on the leave. Their main aim for this season will probably be to remain in Extraliga as there are two teams relegated, but with their youngsters being a year older there might even make it to the play-offs.

MHC Martin
Well, I have already talked about Michal Macho leaving, but I haven´t mentioned yet that he has signed a two year contract with HC Mlada Boleslav of the Czech Extraliga. But Martin has signed F Jaroslav Jabrocky who has spent his last season with MSHK Garmin Zilina.

HC Kosice
Swede Henrik Hoglund won´t be joining them till July when they hit the ice an if there will be anymore new players, they aren´t coming till this date as well. Kosice are still wanting to soing LA Kings prospect Vladimir Dravecky and NYI prospect Tomas Marcinko, but they seem to be more keen on Dravecky while they´d be satisfied with Marcinko as well. (According to an interview with coach Anton Tomko in local newspaper)

HC Slovan Bratislava
The biggest news is F Robert Dome is finished with Slovan, but he is not ending his career as some have claimed. It is still unclear whether G Sasu Hovi will be leaving Slovan and while Slovan is keen on signing young G Jaroslav Janus, his eyes are set on the NHL draft and he´s planning to return to NA to either play in the AHL or rejoin the Erie Otters for an overage year in the OHL.

HK Aquacity Poprad
There still is no news about Poprad and whether they will apply to SE for next season. Bu there are a few players training together who might be playing for Popard if they apply, which include G Miroslav Simonovic, F Peter Klouda and F Arne Krotak. So I guess we won´t see Arne in Zvolen jersey next season.

HC Kosice
Well, pretty much the only news is that NYI prospect F Tomas Marcinko is staying overseas, so he won´t be joining Kosice, I guess that was expected since his contract is still not finished. We´ll see how the situation will pan out with LA Kings F Vladimir Dravecky, whose contract has finished this season.

that's what I was talking about. plus, I don't want to have Simon here as a number one...

btw, it is very interesting news for me about Nitra - I thaught this year will be great with new coach and good goalies, but Mertel and !Caladi! are going out...

Yes it is due tothe financial crisis and I heard about two other teams that might book out of the 1.liga.

About Extraliga, there should be 12 teams + the U20 team, but it does not look like Poprad will apply riht now, so there might be only 11+1.

And almost all the better players are leaving at least to the Czech republic, so next season we´re eithe rgoing to see a season with most teams having players with and average age of 25 or under or there we´re be few times more Czech gramp´s coming over. I hope for the first one, it looks like that so far. Just looking at Slovan´s current roster: Bezak, Rusnak,Konrad, Hudacek, Stajnoch, Skokan, Caladi, all are around 20, when was the last time this happened in Slovan?? the question is whether they´ll get the ice-time there

EDIT: My prediction for the season: Palffy gets at least 200 points, Mikus maybe around 150 and the U20 team will get around 10 wins/ties in regular time.

EDIT: According to the Nove Zamky website it is already official that they will be playing in 2.liga only. Also their juniors weren´t playing in the U20 1.liga, so they can´t apply for the junior league for next season, so their junior aged players will beplaying with men.
Also there are rumours that a newly formed team might apply for 1.liga.

I think it is unfair to predict something (Cherepanov and so on). On other hand, there willbe first season of MHL and nobody knows how it will work.

Well, you can´t really say that he will play yet. He said that he would like to play in the Olympics, but it depends on in what form he will be by then and it is one of the reasons why he might be playing in Russia next season. But it is just speaking of a possiblity and I personally won´t believe it until his name isn´t on the roster, because of what he has been saying about retiring and what he has claimed about the NT in a recent interview for Sport.

And as much as I´d love to see him play, it won´t help us anyway.

Another thing is, the WC= No, Palffy won´t play because he is too old and wants to make room for younger players and now Olympics= He wants to play, people are not liking that

Btw, Karsten, Idnes is not a reliable source, it is a Czech tabloid, though this article us true cuz they picked it up from Slovak media, who all published it, there even are reactions of Slovak fans from sme.sk and hokej.sk on Idnes.

they must be joking... there where rumours about this when Skokan signed there... they both were talking last season that their contract will end and also they will end with studies in Mikulas, and so there is a chance to go somewhere else... I am sure they are surprised because twins are like "family gold" of LM, but in that case, they had to sign boys for the next year - because this is what comes if not - they will go away...

but if they had some talks about the new contract and twins haven't said it purposedly - that really IS sad...

and I will miss them, I can't imagine anyone else than Kiko (Martin Kriska) playing with them... :(

yep, it surely is strange:c062:

But I think all in all it means that Slovan can pay them more than LM can afford, as sad as that is:c165:
But seriously I´m starting to get worried about Mikulas, with Falter and the Huna twins gone, they will very likely face fight for maintaining their Extraliga spot:c105:
This sucks, I mean when you look at all the players that they have distribued to the other Extraliga teams, it would not be a good thing for them to get relegated.

it was always like this - Uram, Plch, Pleva, Kledrowetz, Huna brothers, Miklik, and many many others... the same with Poprad, many great boys left us... but it is what is hockey about, too, Slovan or Kosice can afford more, so they have no reason to stay at home... truly, it is said, but would you stay when you can get twice in different team? well, I would, but just with good team, and because I would like to stay in home town for whole life...

and about Poprad - Anton Danko had some session with parents of kids from youth teams. he said that he (well, the town) won't give money to the A-team, but he will support the youth
plus I heard that he said something that parents have to create their own council and so they will call away coaches and things like these...
I don't know if it is true or not (the first part about supporting youth is, one junior player told me, but he had to left after few minutes and go to the training, the others are from the internet discussion), but it seems to me, that something is between Danko and Turan, and Danko don't want to have him there...
well, this I know for sure, cuz I know more, but can't say everything... you've got that word in your signature that describes it the most... the last one...

oh, and I almost forget - there are articles about Poprad's future - hokejportal, sme, hokej.sk, osporte.sk and so - and everywhere is the same - we don't know what will go on, we don't have money, any partners, the only thing we've got is Tibor Turan as the director, seven signed players (I know that Buc, Hascak, Lapsansky, Bakos and Brejcak are, maybe the two others are Vojsovic and Mlynarovic, cuz they signed something last season) and mr. Danko as a mayor - and this is just my opinion - who wants to show that when he was here, everything was fine, and without him, we can't do it...

Btw, sosu regarding what you said about the Huna twins, that you can´t imagine them playing with noone else than Kriska, there actually is one person that I can. And if the rumours are true, then we will see a Huna-Huna-Huna(maybe RiRoRu sounds better:c032:) line this year, Kosice fans would be real "happy" about his one:c261::c261:

I am quite sure once there will be the Huna line in Mikulas ;) well, I hope so... it could be nice to have the trio at home

btw, we always laughed about this - do you know the Queen song "Sheer Heart Attack"? in 1:03 Fredy is singing something that reminds me "hunaaa, hunaaa, hunaaa..." :))) they're famous :))))

EXTRALIGA BUDGETS

I was wondering whether you can help me with info on the team budgets

Here's are the figures and info I have found so far:


In mio. €

2008-09
Slovan Bratislava 3.7
Kosice 3.2
Zvolen (2.3 - but cuts were made during the season)
Dukla 1.5
Poprad 1.49
Banska Bystrica 1.3
Liptovsky 1.125


2009-10
Slovan Bratislava 3.2
Kosice (3.2 - depending on EHCL)
Dukla 1.5
Banska Bystrica 1.3
Zvolen 1.3
Spisska Nova Ves 0.835 (played in 1.liga last year: player budget 0.275)
Liptovsky 0.9

Martin (budget will be cut by 1/3). Ticket revenues declined 30% last season.
Zilina: budget will be cut 20-60%
Nitra: budget will be cut 20-30%
Poprad: in danger of collapsing, the team has lost their main sponsor. current budget: 0.33

As of 2010-11, the Extraliga will be reduced to 10 teams

I'm specifically interested in HK32 Skalica, MHC Martin, Zilina. Nitra's 2008-09 budgets.

I'm sure the figures are gross budgets. The actually salary budgets would be in the range 0.4-0.6 of the gross budgets.

jaaa
02-06-2009, 15:56
Well, it is incredibly hard to find, it will be easier to get the exact numbers at the start of the season. I tried to do some research but found only some old data about Martin.
http://www.mhcmartin.sk/index.php?ID=clanky&clid=2159&kat=1
I only found a mention of it in this interview with their GM, but the interview is from March. He said that the projected budget is 40million SK/ 1,357 mil. Euro
It should have been decided whether it will be like this in April, but I didn´t find any new numbers.

Maybe sosu can help a bit more here.

Thanks for the figure on MHC Martin. I now only miss: HK32 Skalica, Zilina, Nitra and Kezmarok. (2008-09 budgets)

jaaa
02-06-2009, 17:03
Ahh, okay, I guess I should pay more attention to what you actually wrote next time. Sorry.

Zilina: 30-35 million SK/ 1-1,16 million €
Skalica: 60 million SK/ 1,99 million € Without costs for the premises of the arena, which is paid by the town Skalica.
Martrin: 65 million SK/ 2,15million € Without costs for the premises of the arena, which is paid by the town Martin.
Nitra: 50 million SK/ 1,66 € Without premises costs.

Surce: http://www.hokej.sk/extraliga/clanok56324-S_najvyssim_rozpoctom_Slovan_najlacnejsie_vstupenk y_u_novacika.htm

The article is from the start of the season, so it is possible that the budgets were cut during the season.

I hope that helped.

Btw Karsten, it´s HK 36 Skalica, not 32.:c032:

An interesting piece from SZLH on their website about the youth work.

http://www.szlh.sk/clanok/42554-Praca-s-mladezou-je-investicia-s-dlhodobou-navratnostou

And some great alibism from the federation in the Extraliga once again:
I´m too lazy to translate the whole things, so I´ll just do it like this (my comments are in italics):

"Metodické oddelenie v spolupráci s regionálnymi trénermi vytvorilo podmienky pre stabilizovanie hráčskeho kádra 14 a 15-ročných hokejistov, teda adeptov na začlenenie do najmladšieho reprezentačného družstva SR 16, formou krátkych výcvikových táborov. Výsledok: výber SR 15 posledné štyri roky dominoval v medzinárodnej konfrontácii tejto vekovej kategórie na turnaji v Česku."

This piece talks about stabilizing the 14-15 y.o. players and establishing them to the youngest national team U16.
The result: the U15 has dominated the U15 tourney in the Czech republic for the last 4 years.

The flaws of this part: The tourney is defintely the Christmas tourney Beskyd Cup and while it definitely is a great experience for the players and it is good to take part in such tournaments, the competition there does not seem like the highest level of competition.
This year it included Belarus U15, Austria U15, Northern Moravia U15 and Olomouc region U15. For example the same U15 team that won this tournament has had some great results at this years U18 WC: USA 0:12, SWE 0:7, FIN 0:7, GER 5:4 SO. While noone is expecting them to compete for medals this are not acceptable results even for the 10th ranked country in ice-hockey.

Argument kritikov, že na Slovensku sme po Pálffym, Hossovi, či Gáboríkovi nevychovali už dlhé roky veľký talent, nestojí na pevných nohách. Prečo Kanada po Gretzkom, či Lemieuxovi, čakala dve desaťročia na Crosbyho? Prečo magická sovietska trojica sedemdesiatych a osemdesiatych rokov minulého storočia Makarov, Larionov Krutov má nástupcov v podobe Ovečkina, Malkina, Kovaľčuk až v súčasnosti? Jednoducho, je to v prírode... Géniovia v akejkoľvek oblasti ľudského bytia sa nerodia každý rok.

This talks how the critics are saying that no big talent was brought up after Palffy, Hossa or Gaborik and the author of the article compares it to how it took 20 years until Gretzky or Lemieux it took 20 years till Crosby or how long it took until Ovechkin, Malkin, Kovalchuk replaced Makarov, Larionov, Krutov. And that genius in one aspect of life ain´t born every day.

Flaws of this part: How can somebody seriously compara Hossa, Gaborik or Palffy to those like of the Canadians and Russians that were mentioned!!?? Maybe Gaborik and Palffy based pure on talent if there weren´t their injuries might come closer to them. And the biggest flaw while Canada/Russia have brought up some generational talents only every twenty years, they have brought up a huge number of players who are top players in the game currently while we were brought up mainly average players some to below average, with one overaverage to top player here and there.

Slovensko má v porovnaní s vyspelým hokejovým svetom jednu veľkú nevýhodu - malú „populačnú základňu". Krajina s päť a pol miliónmi obyvateľov nemôže mať porovnateľnú hráčsku zásobáreň so štátmi, ktoré majú dva a viacnásobne viac obyvateľov. S počtom mladých registrovaných hokejistov totiž patrí Slovensku v pomyselnom vo svetovom rebríčku až desiata priečka.

Here it talks about how a 5,5 million country can´t have the same player base who have twice as much and more inhabitans.

Flaws of this part: Hm, okay, I would be eager to know how they would explain these numbers:
Finland
Population: 5,3 million
Total players: 61, 684
Junior players: 36,411

Slovakia
Population: 5,5 million
Total players: 9 870
Junior players: 7 657

I find it interesting that a country that has even smaller population than ours ca have three times more junior players than we have total players?? Of course, you can blame it on other things, but surely they have seen TV, computers or video games in Finland as well??

And other comparison since they mentioned countires with twice as much inhabitans as Slovakia, let´s take a look at the Czech republic´s number.

Czech republic
Population: 10,4 million
Total players: 94 867
Junior players: 34, 032

And how the numbers would look if you simply double the Slovak number of players since the Czech rep. has twice as more inhabitans:

Czech republic
Population: 10,4 million
Total players: 19 740
Junior players: 15 314

Something´s gotta be wrong then, ha?

oh, damn, I am not right. from NOW we have to count ten years... yeaaah, now I see... so what do they do for last nine - fifteen years? never mind...

and I won't get down anymore

so, I really hope that the next thing I will hear is NOT, that Kristian Grman is going to the world championships after such a nice season he had with his team, or, that my friend can't be the goalie, because another boy's parents gave 300 000 skk and while my friend doesn't have money, he can't replace him in the team

"the only thing we've got is Tibor Turan as the director, seven signed players (I know that Buc, Hascak, Lapsansky, Bakos and Brejcak are, maybe the two others are Vojsovic and Mlynarovic, cuz they signed something last season)"

Talking about Tupy, it makes me think that people just won´t get that away so easily and are finally gonna take some action, but.....

Two years ago I wouldn´t believe that after two years I still ne listening to this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnJso1lXMGM thinking that the lyrics still are so true.

When crossing the border, there shouldn´t be "welcome to slovakia" or even "welcome to slotakia", but "welcome to the country where injustic is welcomed, don´t turn your back because you´ll never know when someone ´s gonna stab you."

What is the source? If there are Polish sites as I wrote in Polish thread it's not true. Zagłębie's president has tendency to confabulate a little bit and probably at meeting with fans he told Da Costa signed and that news was flying but only because words from man who's hmmm not too credible. He said it because he wanted to sign Da Costa and he failed to do so and trying to find an excuse he created version that Da Costa fooled him and signed with Dukla in March. Shame on journalists they copied his words without confirmation. Of course maybe something has changed until now but I didn't see another credible source to confirm it so probably truth is still Da Costa is going to tryout in July/August but didn't sign.

About nationality-he was born in French from Portuguese/French father and Polish mother. Played for France in juniors and some senior games but last year he said is Pole and since then few times declined call ups to French NT. He even sent form to IIHF to ask when he will be eligible to play for Poland but I dunno how it ended though first clarifications from various IIHF representatives was somehow different. Probably if he will play in Dukla next season he won't be eligible for Poland.

Though about foreigners I should say I can't understand why we in Poland have to watch "supertalented" players as Strapko, Mucha or Belica so I think they're equalizing score ;)

Nothing personal against him, but I hope he won´t be in Dukla next year, they don´t need some imports when they´ve got enough of their homegrown young talented players. And at least he can play for Poland if he stays in Poland.

But he would to play in slovakian league because he want to play in stronger league than PLH. If he will be too weak he won't be signed by Dukla, and it's very simple:c075:

Snowie
18-06-2009, 22:44
ok, no problem I only wrote there aren't only good Slovaks and only weak Poles though general difference in Slovakia's favour is obvious. Generally Da Costa is very determined to go abroad. He didn't make to roster in Vitkovice two years ago but I still think he's able to do it in Dukla this time. Considering homegrown talents I think youdon't have to be afraid - if young Slovaks will be better they'll probably play, not Da Costa.

Well, it would be very simple if Dukla wouldn´t sign him if he´s not enough, but as we´ve seen with the Extraliga teams signing underaverage Czechs from Czech 1.liga, it is possible that they sign him even if he´s not enough.

Of course, he is young and could be a good asset for an Extraliga team and we need good import players. But I just don´t see the point in Dukla signing him, for how much pride they tend to take for their junior team and youth development system, it is illogical to me how they sign and play a 23 year Pole while they could have an even younger player plaiyng instead of him and probably a lot cheaper.

As I already answered to Piotrek, I didn´t mean to underrate Da Costa, but you know in the past few years we´ve seen the Slovak teams sign and play import players over talented Slovak youngsters and it might look like I´m overreacting, but it is one of the reasons for Slovakia´s decline and I just don´t understand such moves from a club with such talent pool as Dukla has. Plus quite a lot of players left Dukla from juniors (for example Tatar-Zvolen, Sisovsky-Martin and soem others went to the CHL), so it is not good for them if the junior players see that they won´t be given ice-time they need and will leave the club and while I´m no Dukla fan at all, I think that is not good for thea league and development of hockey in Slovakia overall.

And I say one more time. If he won't be good enough to play in Dukla he will back to polish league. Dukla want to test him and he is going to be tested because it is chance for him. Give him a chance, maybe he is better than you expect.

I´m open to giving him a chance, but I´m not sure whether you´re aware about the terms in Slovak hockey. I´m 90% sure Dukla will sign him even if he´s not better than let´s say Rado Tybor, an 89 born old from their system.

Oh c'mon. I understand what are your points generally but this statement is somewhat strange. So Dukla's management and coaches don't want Dukla to succeed? If they do they'll choose the best players possible. I sometimes hear Polish football players saying they didn't succeed abroad because coach doesn't like Poles and it's shitty talking - they don't like you because you're poor player - that's the only answer.

I don´t think you got my point right. Nope, I don´t try to say that Slovakian coaches don´t like Slovaks. It´s athing that the clubs do that I don´t understand myself and there is a lot of other people who would agree with me. Slovak U20 coach Mikes talked about this isssue a while back in an interview that I translated for the Czech hockey crisis topic, so this might clear it for you a little bit more:

Why don´t the teams give a chance to the young players?
I don´t understand this. How much money do they throw away for players with no perspective?....While the investition into youth could be paid back to them. The boy will grow and they can sell him later...

Will this change?
I believe in that. There also are some good examples. Tatar, Lapsansky, Caladi or Hudacek. But often the young player is not given a chance till the club is in trouble, they don´ t have money or such. Another problem are the older players. A player, that earns 10 000 monthly, says that it is under his dignity to play against youngsters....How can he say that? He should be happy that he can play for the club and show something on the ice....Also I have some info that the older players are hunting the youngsters.

How?
For example they don´t want to play on a line with them, because they´ll collect less points and while negotiating a new contract they can´t us ethe productivity. Or during summer training the threaten the youngsters that he´ll be running behind them and can´t pass them.

Prochazka was here "playing" for four months - FOUR! and I am still asking - did he pay to the club for that or what? my brother, playing as an amateur, could be better choice! even further - the only difference between my hockey skills and Prochazka's is, that I don't know to skate!

Jiri Malinsky last year in Zvolen also comes to my mind while Daloga was playing in Puchov.

Though we shouldn´t be so pesimistic, there are also bright examples like Dzerins, though he sucked in his second season, but considering that Martin owes him money for his salaray it is not that surprising.

But you know, Snowie and Piotrek there is an unspoken rule: "An import should be at least a foot-pace better than the home player." And the Slovak teams have not kept to this rule at all. But on the other hand, I´m sure that out of the Slovakians in the Polish league most of whom would be average 1.liga players over here there are quite some taking ice-time from Polish players. That´s what the import players quota is in most leagues, but we don´t have one which is the main problem.

Anyway, if Da Costa is really good and plays for Dukla, I´d give it two months till´his in Czech republic.

Prochazka was in Poland at the end of the season - played one game and then was healthy scratch until the end - probably Ihnacak in Tychy knew everything about him ;) But I also remember Strapko in Zagłębie which we're talking about who was on of the worst defensemen in Poland in recent memory and they released him after about 3 months.

Back to Da Costa - he was called up although from reserve to French NT for last IHWC. As you probably remember France ended two places behind Slovakia. But he refused to go by reasons I mentioned above and his younger and better brother, Stephane went instead of him.

Slovak national team is not a mirror of the Extraliga if they do good or if they do bad, because there is never more than 3 Extraliga players playing and only 1 usually gets some playing time, even though I m not convinced that some of the from Czech Extraliga with a bigger salary is always better. The team that played for us this season in the state they were would probably have their ass handed to them even by our U20 team.
Liptovsky Mikulas played against French national team last year and the game ended 4:6 in favour for the French and while they´re won it´s not really any great result as LM isn´t even a top team in Extraliga. Being a national team player for France doesn´t mean that you´re good enough to play in Extraliga, even though there are lots of worse players playing in the league. But I already said that an import should be better than the home player, because if he isn´t what´s the reason for bringing him in?
I´m praying that Da Costa will develop in something like Dzerins in his first season with Martin. but I don´t see the point of Trencin signing such a player since they have financial trouble and have claimed they´ll play with a philosophy of playing players from their succesful junior team. It would be more reasonable for them to get some experienced player, so the youngsters have somebody to learn from.

Snowie
19-06-2009, 00:28
I didn't say it is a mirror, I wrote it to give you view on his level. But the reason there are only about 3 players from Extraliga in NT is decline of Extraliga's level last few years so in fact you evaluated him higher than I would like to:c032:

Still I don't know why you blame Da Costa for going to Dukla - it is his chance. When they asked him he should say "no sorry, I want to play in weaker league because I don't want to Slovak fans blame me for decline of Slovak hockey"?

Yes, it is one of the reasons and the official reason, but the Czech Extraliga is declining as well and we still have quite the bunch of players from there in national team. It´s a question for the national team coach not me why he prefers tragedians ala Laci Nagy in the national team.

My point was that an average Extraliga team almost beat the French national team, so a player playing for the French national team does not automatically qualify as an Extraliga player.

Snowie
19-06-2009, 00:57
Yet I'm not sure if we should translate results in this straight way. Last summer Polish teams played 10 preparation games against Extraliga's and won 4 of them. Even though Extraliga is weaker than it was it doesn't mean Polish league is nearly equal. E.g. Zaglebie which is mediocre team in Poland (6th place last season) with Teddy Da Costa in squad beat Zilina away. He even scored one goal and then in shootout also.

Though I don't know if this discussion is out of thread a little bit and Da Costa is not a major Slovak Hockey News. As I wrote in Poland thread I like his style of play - dynamic, physical and on the edge a little bit, sometimes cross the line but he knows how to fight as well even though is not a big guy. So we'll see how the situation will grow up.

Yeah and Zilina is a very ptahetic team when it comes to exhibition games and was pathetic even in the Extraliga this year. Slovak teams had a positive bilance with Czech teams last season and it doesn´t mean that SE is better than CE. I just wanted to point out that French NT is still weak and no offence to them they went so far this year mainly thanks to the pathetic German team. And it is different when you have exhibition games between league teams and a league team and national team. A national team from the elite division shouldn´t have trouble with an average Extraliga team.

We´ll see about him, maybe it was all just a rumour, but baring a scenario in which he turns into a deadly sniper type of player in SE, there is no point for Trencin sigining him, while I´m not denying that he might be a good asset for an other team.

Ok, end of Da Costa discussion.

= each team with each other, once at home, once away - 26 games
II. part - qualifying, group A
= the teams after the preliminary at the 1.-8. place will make a group and play once at home and once away - 14 rounds
II. part - gualifying, group B
= the extraleague teams after the preliminary at the 9.-14. place will make a group with the winning teams of groups A and B in first junior league and they will be playing twice at home and twice away - 28 rounds
III. part - play-off - for three victories
quarterfinal - semifinal - bronze medal game - gold medal game
the days played are - Saturday 14:00 and Sunday 10:30! this means that teams will have to make "twins" just as in U18 it was used to. the very same will be done in U18 and so while juniors are at home, U18 are away, and while they are playing at home, juniors are away.

some changes here, too
so, the system is
I. part - preliminary - twins in two groups
group A - twice at home, twice away

Looking at it,were the playing times for U20 games changed to this day to prevent teams from playing U18 players in both U18 and U20 games? I know there was the rule that didn´t allow U18 players play more than a number of games a week (I don´t remember the number right now), but they still managed to play both U18/U20.

Also play-offs in U18 league are new ,right? I mean the winnder was decided from regular season before or not? Also I guess the play-offs are best of 3 just like in U20?

So Dukla Trencin signs goalie Igor Murin.

And I thought Dukla couldn´t get more pathetic, poor Kovac. :c165: I don´t think people from Dukla were watching Ico last year at all, if everything was normal in Dukla I´d give him even less chance to hold on to the No.1 job than to Konrad in Slovan. But yeah doing everything what Dukla is doing I can´t help it, but think that they have a strong desire to get relegated this year.:c261:

I would like to see some explanation from the people that managed to do this, because I can't understand what was wrong about the old system.
yeah, now the boys who are in the fourth grade in second high schools can do the final exams and then also play finals, this is the only reason I could see is better than the old system...

yes, it's new, in the old system of league the best team after 60 rounds got :c205:
and I don't know anything about play-offs besides it's only semifinal and than the final games, so they don't have quarterfinals like in U20. it is not written anywhere, I just read about the system from the new program for the season :)

Realistic? Probably miserable to none.....It´s probably more of an gaining experience thing with him and Janus at the camp...

With the WHC 2010 in Germany, that sounds way more realistic, that is if he plays in Zvolen...

Slovnaft Extraliga All-stars team:
Goaltender: Július Hudáček (HC Košice)
Defender: Jan Hranáč(HK 36 Skalica), Ján Tabaček (HC Košice)
Forwards: Žigmund Pálffy (HK 36 Skalica), Juraj Mikúš (HK 36 Skalica), Rudolf Huna (HC Košice)

There was no big upset in this years edition of the Golden puck awards in the "big" categories, but it still has brought some surprises. Probably everybody expected that Zdeno Chára would stand at the absolute top this year, so the best defender award is no surprise either.
While some migth have expected Žigmund Pálffy to overtake Marián Hossa´s three year bets forward run, Hossa´s win can´t be called an upset. Jaroslav Halák´s win was expected as well and while some may have had chosen Jaroslav Janus as the top U20 palyer, Tomáš Tatar´s win ain´t a shocker either.
And there is no need to comment on the repeat of Peter Országh´s (who has become the first Slovak referee in the WHC final in 15 years) or on Zuzana Tomčíkova´s win.
The first surprise that the night brought was the best coach category,the general anticipation was that Štefan Mikeš, who led the WJC team to the surprise 4th place or if not him then Miroslav Karafiát,who has coached the 17th ranked Slovak women national team to the Olympics and to the top division of the world women championships. However in the end Košice´s Extraliga win after 10 long dry years has brought the trophee to Anton Tomko.
But the real shocker of the night didn´t come until the Slovnaft Extraliga All-stars team was announced, all 6 players came form the top two teams, HC Košice and HK 36 Skalica were represented with 3 palyers each. While the defense and attack were generally expected to finish the way they did, Július Hudáček as the top goaltender is a huge upset even for many Košice fans. While the still 20 years old goaltender has stopped Pálffy in the shootout of game 6 of the final 3 out of 3 times, he has only played 30 games over the year and for the most part was only the back-up in Košice and it really was surprising to see him chosen in front of Hkm Zvolen´s Ján Laco, HC 05 Banská Bystrica´s Imrich Petrík, who both have had break out seasons in the league (and ironically both were previously only back-up goalies in Košice) or even Slovan´s Finnish import Sasu Hovi.


Meanwhile Dárius Rusnák became the 24th person to be inducted in the Slovak Hockey Hall of Fame. Rusnák has played 436 Czechoslovak league games and scored 186 goals and he´s appeared in 156 games of the Czechoslovakian national team scoring 68 goals. He´s won all medals from the WHC as well as the silver medal from the 1984 Olympics in Sarajevo. Except for the Olympics medal some of his biggest achievements were captaining the Czechoslovak national team to the gold medal win on home soil in Prague in 1985 and winning the Czechoslovak title with Slovan Bratislava as the first Slovak team ever.
To Rusnák´s delight both of his sons followed in his footstepd, the younger one Ondrej has represented Slovakia at the last WJC in Ottawa and is expected to suit up for Slovan this comming seaon after spending two years with the Slovakia U20 development team in Púchov. The older of the two brothers, Dárius Rusnák Jr. is currently with an another Extraliga team, MHK 32 Liptovský Mikuláš after spending last season in the Czech republic.

The awards ceremony also included an exhibiton game between the Slovak national team and Extraliga winner HC Košice. Today´s hockey night in Košice was entitled "The best against the best" by the Slovak federation, however not all players were able to suit up either because of an injury (Hossa, Višňovský, Demitra, Radivojevič, Obšut) and some weren´t released by their KHL teams or couldn´t attend because of family reasons. The game was definitely slowed down by stopping it every 5 minutes to award the Golden puck winners during a short break. Also while the 1st period took 20 minutes as usually, the 2nd and 3rd only took 15 minutes. In the end after 50 minutes of play the champions Košice have beaten the Slovak National Team 5:3 and the only player who managed to score on HC Košice´s young goalies Július Hudáček and Dominik Pec was SC Bern´s Ľuboš Bartečko.

Košice started the game very slowly, they were thorughly dominated by the national team players for the most part of the first period. Part of the reason of thus might have been the fact that 7 players in their starting line-up are between 17-21 years old: D Martin Marinčin(17), who has yet to play in a senior league, D Michal Pichnarčík (18), who has spent mos of last season in the 1.liga and ha splayed some games for Slovakia U20 team, F Marek Mertel (20), who came to Košice after two years with the Slovakia U20 team and Nitra, G Július Hudáček (20), an another former Team Slovakia U20 player who has gained the No.1 job after one year in Košice and two 21 year olds forwards Ondrej Gmitter and Marcel Baláž who have spent the last season in 1.liga.
The first goal of the game came from Ľuboš Bartečko,who gave Team Slovakia lead with a goal that was most probably seen only by the referee, Bartečko didn´t even really notice the goal himself. However after the short break when the first award was awarded Košice came back way more lively than before and Richard Jenčík tied the game, in the second period Košice managed to build a 3-1 lead, all the goals were a result of co-operation between Košice´s third line of Šimurda, Jenčík and Sýkora. But then Bartečko scored again and before the end of the second period his goal was answered by Košice´s new Swedish forward Henrik Hoglund, who became the player of the year in the Norwegian league last year. in the 3rd period the two same players scored again, but this time Hoglund managed it first and Bartečko only cut Košice´s lead from 2:5 to 3:5.

Of course since it was an exhibition game we´ve seen some unusual aspects, for example Buffalo Sabres D Andrej Sekera has started the game as a forward or all 5 players on the ice for Slovakia being D-men during one shift and altogether 5 goaltenders were in the Team Slovakia net including the top women hockey player winner Zuzana Tomčíková.

Just a note: Chairman of Slovak parliament Pavol Paška dropped the first face-off and he also awarded Chára the Best player award. However the fans in Steel Aren have displayed their disgust at his presence there by whistling him out. Yes, politics and hockey shouldn´t be combined together.
Košice too changed their goalie from Hudáček to Dominik Pec midway through the game.

Yes, I read it on hokejportal.sk. But polish site hokej.net said it was Roman Guričan. I checked Marek Guričan on eurohockey.net, and there his last season is 2003/04, if I remember well. Roman's last season on eurohockey.net is 2006/07 but in years 2007-2009 he played in Sanok. So maybe I'm wrong, but I think Roman Guričan was tested by Nitra. Any voice from Slovakia in this case?

C.

as you wrote - he was born and grown up in Prešov. he played there and was a representant U18 (silver medal from the Europe championship in Minsk)
in 1981/1982 he was in Košice and U20 representation. then he went back to Prešov, studied at the university and also helped his home team to get from the 1. liga to extraliga.
then he went with Vladimir Svitek and Anton Bartánus to Slovenia - HK Triglav Kranj. he played here for two years and then was a coach for four years
back to Slovakia he helped with youth in Prešov, when mr. Hovorka came he was assistant coach in Prešov, then he was coaching Prešov U18 and after a year also Prešov's A team
in 2004/2005 he was assistant to Hovorka again - in Žilina. year after the coach changed - mr. Šterbák - and they won the title (against Poprad :c165: ) then they both went to Košice, and here he is now...

so, till 1981/1982 in Prešov, than this one single year in Košice, then again in Prešov
1984/85/86 in Triglav as a player, than four years as a coach and back to Slovakia...

hope this helped, I've got it all from an article about him which was in a magazine

2. Wasn't Prešov promoted to 1. SNHL, so 2nd tier of CSSR ?

ad. 1. - I really don't know, it was not mentioned in that article, maybe it's a mistake in statistics and it has to be 1983/1984, who knows (there are mistakes, for example Marek Uram has got one season in Poprad there - and he has never been playing here...)

ad. 2. - Prešov played in 1. SNHL for 18 seasons. in extraliga (which was created after 1993) they played 4 seasons, now they are in 1. liga (1. HLSR).
before the 1. SNHL there was a league called "Slovak Championships" in years 1930-1944, in year 1932 they won it and three times they were second.

yes, nobody, that's why I am glad I know that it can be correct :)

and yes, he changed his name to Spilar and he is back to Žilina this season. I have seen him playing in two matches, he is not that good he used to be, but still a hockey player ;) now he is injured, but I don't know what is up with him. I hope he will be okay to the match with Poprad, because I want to see him, he is one of my favourites...
