    It was a great succes as all the experts favourited USA,Canada and Russia as it was for a first time in the history when NHL was shut-off during this tournament so the best players of this planet could be there...yep, and we won...
    Still hard to belive it....

    It was all about Hasek and his amazing goal tending... The guy was unbeatable.....

    Kind of the same situation with the 1980 USA Team at Lake Placid Roman....

    it was also the 60th anniversary of the RCAF Flyers winning the Olympic Gold medal for hockey and yes they were all airmen . They put in their own team since we weren't going to send one so thje RCAF stepped up to the plate. The combination of speed reaction and airforce

    There was an 80th anniversary of the Icehockey in my town- Zlin today. We couldn´t miss it and went there. We got a lot of pics and siggys.
    Here´s my son with Martin Hamrlik,brother of Roman Hamrlik who used to play for NY Islanders, Calgary Flames and actualy plays for Motreal Canadiens.
    The other pics shows my son with Jaroslav Balastik who used to play for Columbus Blue Jackets in 2005-2007. Thanks to God we got him back! They called him 'Automatic Balastik' in NHL due to his shootout efficiency...
