    Kometa Brno is returning to the Extraliga and the fans are excited. Some 1,200 season cards are available. Sponsors and fans that had a season card last year are first in line. The sales opened this morning with long queues. 99% of the tickets are already sold by noon. Price for a season card: seats: CZK4,000 (US$200), stands CZK2,600 (US$135). The arena at Brno can hold 7,200, and the remaining 6,000 tickets will be sold at the gates.
    Gate prices: seat CZK220 (US$11.50), stands CZK130 (US$7) (up from CZK50 when Brno played in 1 Liga.

    The return of Kometa Brno, 11 fold Czechoslovakian champion, to the Extraliga is one of the best things that has happened to Czech hockey for a long time.

    Take a look at their fan culture:

    You are right Karsten, I´d go as far as saying that Kometa Brno fans are among the best fans in Europe.

    And here, a little document from Czech Tv about the craziness in this past season

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0_KO7wW-qs

    EDIT: Kometa has already sold 5000 season tickets. Last year they sold 4000 season tickets for 1.liga.

    And HC Moeller Pardubice now becomes Eaton HC Pardubice. The reason is that the Moeller, a electrical company has been sold to the Eaton corporation

    New website for HC Trinec: http://www.hcocelari.cz


    Other news

    * Martin Straka has been appointed as president of HC Plzen. He is also the GM of the club.

    * HC Vitkovice is still negotiating with its main sponsor, Evraz Vitkovice Steel, on an extension on the sponsor contract. HC Vitkovice has already announced a 25% cut in its budget. This will bring the budget down to around CZK70 mio.

    * The managers of the clubs will meet on Tuesday to discuss the control of expenses in the light of the financial crisis. The introduction of a salary cap will be discussed.

    He did figure on Brno's list when the initial rosters were created.

    I'm aware that he returned to Vitktocie but please be patient, the rosters will be updated before the season starts. They won't be updated on a daily basis.

    His natural position is center but Plzen wants to use him as a defender. I think for Mlada Boleslav he was used sometimes as a center and sometimes as a defender.

    Jaroslav Balastik has renewed his contract with Zlin for 1 year. Balastik actually wanted to go abroad again. He was reportedly in contact with teams from KHL and Swiss NLA, but it didn't work out.

    The injury plagued Martin Rucinsky who only played 19 games for Sparta last season will be next season be paid per game.

    Kometa is reported to have signed defenseman, Jakub Sindl from Pelicans Lahti, FIN.

    PRE-SEASON UPDATE #1

    The Czech Extraliga teams are back on ice and the first preparatory matches start in less than a week. I am currently running through the rosters and the news around the teams. I will write a comprehensive league preview shortly before the season starts on 9 September, but here are some preliminary notes on the teams I have looked at so far:

    HC LIBEREC
    HC Liberec has been a top team for several years, but last season it finished disappointedly outside the playoffs (9th in regular season and eliminated by Vitkovice in the play-ins). The club has faced severe financial distress and in the 2009/10 season the budget will be sliced by no less than a 1/3 (from CZK 156 mio. to around CZK 100 mio). Estimated salary budget will be cut from about €3 mio. to €2 mio. During the off-season, Liberec has lost a score of key players, including forwards Radim Vrbata (Phoenix Coyotes) and Vaclav Pletka (Karlovy Vary) and most significantly its four top defensemen (Modry (Plzen), Zabka and Jirus (Mlada Boleslav) and Lukas Zib. Liberec's forward lines still look pretty good with Petr Nedved, Vaclav Nedorost and Slovak national players Bartovic and Podkonicky, but its defense looks thin and inexperienced. Finnish goaltender Tero Leinonen has returned to the club and has signed a contract until 2011. Former Czech national team goaltender Milan Hnilicka didn't get his contract extended and has still to find a club.
    Compared with previous seasons, Liberec's ambitions have been dramatically downgraded. The objective is now merely to reach the playoffs.

    HC LITVINOV
    HC Litvinov finished 3rd in the regular season but was eliminated in the quarterfinals by Karlovy Vary which went on to win the championship. Litvinov has largely managed to keep its core roster intact. None of the players that are gone were impact players, perhaps with the possible exception of Daniel Branda, and Litvinov hasn't made any significant signings. Nearly all new players have been called up from the junior team (U20) or Banik Most, Litvinov's farm team in the 1 Liga. Gross budget will be in the neigborhood of CZK80 mio. (20% reduction from last season). As in last season, Litvinov will be lead by forwards Robert Reichel, Vojtech Kubincak, Frantisek Lukes, Viktor Hübl and defensemen Jiri Slegr. Jaroslav Hübl, who finished the regular season with a SVS% of 93.4 will remain the starting goaltender.

    HC Litvinov's off-season preparations have been detailed reported on the club's homepage. The roster was largely completed by late April. Summer training started 27 April, about three weeks after Litvinov was eliminated in the playoffs. The summer training included track and jogging, mountain biking, tennis and football and ended late June/early July with a team building trip to Turkey. Then followed 3 weeks vacation, and the players returned to the ice on 20 July (first week primarily light skating). Litvinov will play 12 preparatory games (incl. 4-5 in Tipsport Cup and four games in Switzerland where the club will have its training camp in mid-August).

    Side note:

    Slegr: Hockey or Politics?


    As noted, veteran defenseman Jiri Slegr (former Olympic and IHWC champion) is lined up for another season with Litvinov. His career, however, may end very soon. Slegr has recently entered politics and is nominated as the Social Democract's second top candidate at the the Czech parliamentary elections in early Autumn. The probability that he will be elected his very high. If he is elected, it is safe to assume that Slegr will end his hockey career. He can't combine the demanding jobs.

    PRESEASON UPDATE #2

    HC PLZEN

    HC Plzen has drawn a lot of headlines in the Czech hockey media during the off-season.

    First and foremost, HC Plzen has literally been on the verge of bankruptcy. The club hasn't been able to find any new main sponsor after the contract with Lasselsberger expired. With a few exceptions, it has been difficult for all Extraliga clubs to attract new sponsors. The financial crisis is hitting Czech sport very hard. To make matters worse, HC Plzen has had a short-term debt of CZK18 mio (mainly player salaries) that were to be paid no later than 8 June. In April, the municipal council of Plzen stepped in and offered the hockey club a loan of CZK15 mio. The conditions, however, were very tough. The loan was a short-term 5-year loan with a steep interest rate (5%) and private persons of the club should be willing to step in as guarenteers. Moreover, it was a condition that the local authorities should be the sole owner of hockey club.

    In the end, Martin Straka stepped in and rescued the club. Straka covered the debt of CZK18 mio out of his own pockets. Earlier in May, Straka had also added CZK7 mio to the coffins, and he is now the majority owner of the club with a share of 70%.
    All in all, this leaves Martin Straka with no less than 4 key roles: He is the majority owner, the president, the GM and the key player of HC Plzen. He has been nominated for CZE's Olympic roster, but he will definitely decline the invitation. Has a million of other things to look into.

    By rescuing his native club, Straka is following the footsteps of his old teammate, Mario Lemieux who bailed out the Penguins 10 years ago. But he is not the first hockey player to do so in the Czech Republic. In 2004, former defenseman, Libor Zabransky bought a 40% share of Kometa Brno; in 2006, Jiri Dopita bought a 91% share of HC Olomouc, another 1st liga team that has ambitions to make it to the Extraliga. Interestingly, Dopita play for Kometa which has just realized this ambitions after bying Znojmo's license. Also, in 2006, Vladimir Ruzicka bought with 8 other persons a 98% share of Slavia. Besides being a owner, Ruzicka also serves as GM and coach of Slavia.

    Plzen's signing of the Canadian trio, Bomersback, Scofield, and Doug O'Brien signifies a new turn in the Czech Extraliga. The Czech Extraliga rarely looks further than Slovakia when signing foreign players, and attracting players from over the pond is historically extremely rare. I don't have the exact number, but no more than a handful NA players have ever played in the Czech Extraliga.
    Because of the club's financial problems, Plzen has been forced to find new ways to sign cheap players and the oversea transfer move has been planned for months. Plzen's North American scout who also functions as a scout for Columbus Blue Jackets originally nominated 20 players and in the end 3 players were selected.

    Finally, with Martin Straka's takeover of the club, Plzen has changed name and logo again. The official name of the club is now HC Plzen 1929 (yes, the club celebrates its 80 anniversary this year). The new logo (see below) looks very much like Chicago Blackhawks'. This, however, is merely a coincidence (several other European clubs are also called indians, e.g. Frölunda and Hannover Indians).
    There is no particular reason for the choice of the logo other than HC Plzen wanted an American inspired logo. The fact is that USA is incredibly popular in the town of Plzen. Plzen was the biggest major city in Bohemia that was liberated by the US army during the end of WWII, and this has never been forgotten (even though the Communist regime did its best to supress it). As late as four years ago, the 60 year anniversary of the liberation was celebrated for 4 days! You can read more about this here: http://www.radio.cz/en/article/65642. The point that HC Plzen's new logo is a tribute to the US army's liberation of the town has been confirmed by the club.

    I remember Bomer saying something about the Columbus Scout, who I'm sure had a good relationship with his agent. None the less this could be good, as you might see new young prospects like Scofield who don't want to play in the ECHL or AHL there rookie seasons come over each year for a relative cheep import price.

    PRE-SEASON UPDATE #3

    This update will focus on the two teams that have reached the finals in the past two seasons: Karlovy Vary and Slavia Praha.

    KARLOVY VARY
    Karlovy Vary, the champion, has seen some changes in its defense corps. Gone are Reznicek (retired), Duben, Mudroch and Hanzlik. None of the departures are critical. Carlsbad's first defenseline will still be anchored by Jakub Cutta and Ondrej Nemec. David Hajek (leading defenseman of Kladno last season) should be able to secure a spot on the second defenseline with Michal Dobron, unless coach Palecek goes for the more defensive minded but very experienced Jan Mucha (f. Ceske Budejovice). On the forward lines the arrival of Vaclav Pletka (more than 150 goals in 400 games) will make up for the loss of Petr Sailer and Milan Prochazka.
    To top it all, Karlovy Vary has the arguably best and most talented goaltender, namely Lukas Mensator. Mensator, who is still only 25, is very consistent (SVS% higher than 93% in the last three regular seasons) and was a force in the playoffs where he was honoured as the MVP. On this background, there is no reason to doubt that Karlovy Vary will be a strong title contender again this year. If history provides any guidance, the team will fully show its strength when the playoffs begin. Team budget will remain unchanged.

    The team will move into the new KV Arena in August (it is currently using the practise arena). It will use the home pre-season games to adapt to the slightly smaller rink size. As usual Karlovy Vary has arranged a handful of games vs German and Swiss teams. The German/Swiss teams play more physically than the Czech teams, and it is coach Josef Palecek's belief that they in this regard provide better sparring partners than the domestic teams.

    Karlovy Vary returned to the ice three days ago, and the practise lines currently look like this:

    Goaltenders: Mensator (Sablik, Závorka)
    1st line: Němec, Čutta – Kumstát, Skuhravý, Košťál
    2nd line: Dobroň, Hájek - Kristek, Hluchý, Pletka
    3rd line: Prošek, Mucha - Skladaný, Pech, Melenovský
    4th line, A: Brňák, Parýzek – Zucker, Dej, Zaťovič
    4th line, B: Schmidt – Budínský, Kuběna, Rohan, Haščák

    Note: The contract with the young Slovak forward, Marek Haščák (f. Dukla Trencin) is a try-out. Marek is the son of former Czechoslovkian national team player, Ota Haščák.

    SLAVIA PRAHA
    Due to the financial crisis, Slavia Praha has needed to make major salary cuts (in the range 20-25%). Slavia has accomplished these cuts by releasing some of their most expensive players, namely jaroslav Bednar (Torpedo, KHL), top defenseman Filip Novak (RIga, NHL), goaltender Adam Svoboda (Avangard Omsk) and former NHL'er Milan Kraft. Overall budget 2009/10 will be reduced by some 15% in 2009/10. Novak and Svoboda already left the team during last season, and this didn't prevent Slavia from reaching the finals. But the loss of Bednar, one of the very best forwards in the Extraliga will be tough. There has been no new arrivals except from Vladimir Roth who returns from the OHL. we should still expect Slavia in the top of the league, but there is no doubt that the team has been weakened since 2007/08 when it won the championship.

    PRE-SEASON UPDATE #4

    In my pre-season research on the CZE Extraliga, I am also studying the impact of the financial crisis. Most teams will be forced to make budget cuts. The cuts will primarily be made on staff costs, youth teams and player salaries (incl. few new expensive signings, greater use of youth players). There will be virtually no attempts to raise the revenue through higher ticket prices.

    Compared with other European top leagues the ticket prices are generally very low. Here's an overview:

    2009-10 TICKET PRICES
    Karlovy Vary
    : CZK130-220 (€5-8.50) - last season (CZK60-130). Changes due to new KV arena that only have seats.
    Slavia Praha: CZK150-260 (€6-10) - last season: unchanged
    Sparta Praha: CZK70-170 (€2.75-6.75) - last season: unchanged
    HC Plzen: CZK100-160 (€4-6.25) - last season: CZK90-140 (increase)
    HC Litvinov: CZK70-110 (€2.75-4.25) - last season: unchanged
    HC Pardubice: CZK95-285 (€3.75-11) - last season: CZK85-240 (increase)
    HC Zlin: CZK80-350 (€3-13.75) - last season: Unchanged
    HC Vitkovice: CZK60-100 (€2.25-4) - last season: unchanged
    HC Liberec:CZK90-270 (€3.50-€10.50) - last season: unchanged
    HC Trinec: CZK80-130 (€3-5) - last season: unchanged
    Ceske Budejovice: CZK120-200 (€4.75-8) - last season: €100-170 (reduction)
    HC Kladno: CZK60-110 (€2.25-€4.25) - last season :unchanged
    Mlada Boleslav: CZK80-120 (€3-4.75) - last season: unchanged
    Kometa Brno: CZK120-180 (€4.75-7) - last season CZK50-80. Increase due to promotion to Extraliga

    The ticket price range is thus between CZK60 and CZK350 or (€2.25-€13.75)

    Here's a comparison with other top leagues:

    Germany DEL: €14 - €39.25
    Switzerland NLA: €14 - €37
    Finland SM-Liiga: €15 - €27.50
    Sweden Elitserien: €11.75 - €27.50
    KHL: €2.75 - €13.75
    Czech Extraliga: €2.25 - €13.75
    Slovak Extraliga: €3 - €6.25

    PRE-SEASON UPDATE #5

    Notes on other teams:

    SPARTA PRAHA (#3 last season)
    Sparta has announced budget savings around 20%. The savings will be made through cost reductions in administration and partly through the design of new contracts. With regards to the latter, the contract offer Sparta has made Martin Rucinsky will be performance based. Rucinsky hasn't yet accepted the offer. Sparta has lost a main sponsor, Siemens, but yesterday it was announced that the club has forged a deal with LG Electronics.
    After 4 years at the helm, Frantisek Vyborny leaves the head coaching torch to the young and ambitious Pavel Hynek (f. ass. coach with Plzen). Sparta has largely been able to maintain its roster. Forward Thomas Netik is the only significant loss. Netik who declined to extend his contract will be looking for a foreign team. During the first month of the regular season (about 10 rounds), Sparta will be reinforced with Jan Hlavac and Jaroslav Hlinka. Their artist contracts with Swedish Linköping only allows them to play from mid-October. Sparta attempted to sign Ivan Majesky, but couldn't match Skellefteĺ's offer. Players of Majesky's calibre are much better paid in the Swedish league. Instead the defense corps has been strengthened with Mrazek and Hudec. In the preps, Sparta will participate in the Red Bulls Salute in Salzburg. The preparations will be concluded with a test game vs Slovan Bratislava.

    HC Plzen (#4 last season)
    already covered

    HC PARDUBICE (#5 last season)
    Dominik Hasek's (third) comeback, he is currently 44, is drawing all headlines with regards to Pardubice. Over the past months, Hasek has worked very hard to get in shape again, but no doubt, his attempt to make another comeback is quite a gamble that could shatter his iconic status among Czech hockey fans. Hasek's salary is not disclosed but according to the Czech hockey media, he will receive something between CZK3 to 5 mio. That is top salary after Czech standards, but not an awful lot of money after international standards ($175,000-$275,000). After Christmas, Pardubice implemented a 20-30% salary cut. Further cuts are not being planned. The only other significant addition, Pardubice has made is the return of Petr Sykora, a former NHL'er, who had a successful season with HC Davos last season. Pardubice has suffered two notable losses namely defenseman, Jan Snopek (Ceske Budejovice) and forward Michal Tvrdik (Plzen). During the preseason, Pardubice will travel to Switzerland to participate in the Hockeyades.

    HC Litvinov (#6 last season)
    Already covered

    PSG Zlin (#7 last season)
    Apart from the talented forward Dušan Andrašovský, Zlin has not experienced any significant subtractions. A new contract with captain, Jaroslav Balastik was long in doubt. Balastik wanted to go abroad again, but in the end he settled for another season in the Extraliga. Zlin's current brutto roster comprise 36 players. The roster will be cut to about 25 in late August. The top two forward lines will likely be: Balastik-Leska-Rachunek and Duras-Kollar-Köhler.

    HC Vitkovice (#8 last season)
    Vitkovice which ended 8th last season, but with potential to reach top 4, are among the few Extraliga clubs that won't be making any budget cuts. During the off-season, Vitkovice has made a few interesting signings. On the defenseline, the club has acquired Vladimir Sicak to replace toughman Angel Krstev who will play in the KHL next season. Also new on the defenseline is Denis Rehak, a Slovak, and a leading defenseman of Liptovsky Mikulas last season. Offensively, Vitkovice has lost Lubomir Hurtaj (return from loan to Dukla Trencin), Roman Simicek (who will also play in the Slovak Extraliga) and Zdenek Ondrej (return from loan to Pardubice, now Liberec). These players have been replaced by Petr Vrana, who partly played in the NHL last season, and Ondrej Roman who'll return from the CHL. Vitkovice didn't renew its contract with goaltender Marek Pinc but instead signed Filip Sindelar who played with BK Mlada Boleslav last season.

    HC LIBEREC (#9 last season)
    Already covered

    HC TRINEC (#10 last season)
    Trinec has made large, but unspecified budget cuts. These cuts have led to the departure goaltender Roman Cechmanek (contract not extended) and leading defensemen Lubomir Sekeras, Miroslav Guren, and Lubomir Vosatka and forwards. Most significant loss on the forward side is the Czech top prospect Richard Panik (signed with Tamba Bay Lightning).
    Cechmanek, who has been anything but successful since his return from the NHL, and who is now without a contract, will be replaced with Thomas Duba (f. Ässät, FIN). Martin Štefl is on tryout as backup goaltender. New on the defenseline iare Mario Cartelli (returned from Plzen), Martin Lojek (Pardubice) and Milan Doczy (return from CHL). Slovak defenseman Igor Bobcek is on tryout. New forwards are Martin Růžička (Znojmo) and Roman Tomas (Plzen). while junior players Lukáš Mičulka and Jakub Orsava have a chance to make it to the team. Final roster changes will be made in mid-August. Besides the domestic Tipsport Cup, Trinec will participate in the Rona Cup in Slovakia and the Landshut turnier in Germany. All in all, Trinec looks slightly weakened, and its questionable whether they will reach the playoffs.

    CESKE BUDEJOVICE (#11 last season)
    Ceske Budejovice (aka HC MOUNTFIELD) is not in the same shape as when they won the regular season two years ago. The club has made major savings and many players have left the team. Last season, CB finished disappointedly #11. There have been few transfer movements in the off-season. The only significant move is the signing of defenseman Jan Snopek (f. Pardubice) who will replace Vladimir Sicak. Ceske Budejovice has also lost defenseman Roman Toman (Kladno). Josef Melichar, who is on an artist contract in Sweden, will help Budejovice's defense in the early season. The contract extension with the controversial forward, Radek Duda has not yet been confirmed, so I haven't listed him on the team's roster.
    Like many other teams, Ceske Budejovice is planning further budget costs. The objective is to force down a reduction of the salaries of players under contract. If this doesn't work out, the club will have no other option than to release players.

    HC KLADNO (#12 last season)
    Kladno's roster hasn't yet been published, but there has been few transfer movements. Most significantly, the defenselines have been strengthened with Milan Toman (Ceske Budejovice), Petr Mudroch (Karlovy Vary) and Jan Dlouhy (Zvolen, SVK). Goaltender, Milan Hnilicka currently practises with the team. The former national team goaltender is currently without a club, but it is very unlikely that he will be signed by Kladno which already have two goaltenders under contract namely, Kopriva and backup Lukas Cikanek. Like Cechmanek, Hnilicka has been successful since he returned from the NHL. Like Vitkovice, Kladno won't be making any budget cuts.

    BK MLADA BOLESLAV (#13)
    Few teams have made so many major changes as Mlada Bolelav. 18 players gone, 12 players in. Most significant players leaving are Jan Benda, Ales Padelek, Vaclav Koci and Michal Duras. The defenselines are almost entirely new and on paper quite capable with slovak imports such as Valdemar Jirus, Boris Zabka, Miroslav Dubem, Jaroslav Kasik and Marcel Sterbak. Most significant new forwards include Slovak national team player Michal Macho and Michal Sup who has returned to the Czech extraliga after a year in DEL. Also new is the coach, Vladimir Cermak. The major roster changes allow for a budget reduction of 15%, but this doesn't mean that we should expect Mlada Boleslav to be a bottom-dweller next season. It will be a more experienced team than the one that was promoted from 1. Liga last year. To grow further hair on its chest, Mlada Boleslav has implemented nothing less than a revolution in Czech hockey in the off-season. In the Extraliga, it is custom that the players return to the ice after a three-week vacation in July. Mlada Boleslav has departed from this pattern by sending their players on ice already in May, two months earlier than the other teams. Will be interesting to see what effect this will have.

    KOMETA BRNO (newcomer)
    Kometa, the old glorious club of Brno, failed its strong ambitions to return to the Extraliga, but then bought Znojmo's license for CZK25 mio. Znojmo is now a farm club of Kometa and Kometa will make heavy use of Znojmo's roster from last season. The club has radically increased its budget which is now CZK93 mio, middle-range in the Extraliga. With arguably some of the best and most enthusiastic supporters, Kometa will be tough to beat in the Halle Rondo (currently under reconstruction), but to reach the playoffs, the team will probably need to strengthen its roster further.

    Karsten, I believe that it is just a typo or something, but about Třínec:
    "Most significant loss on the forward side is the Czech top prospect Richard Panik (signed with Tamba Bay Lightning)."

    Czech top prospect? Oh come on, he´s Slovak. Also I don´t think he has signed with Tampa rather with Windsor Spitfires of the OHL. And it´s kinda weird to call him the most significant loss for Trinec, as he hardly played any significant amount with the senior team and he didn´t stand out much whn he did. I mean surely he´s a promise, but a significant loss at this point?
    Slovak hockey... just won´t die :D :D :D

    Partly a typo, partly a mistake. Panik is of course Slovak, but is one of the top prospects in the Czech Extraliga. So much for the typo. On Idnes.cz, he is listed as signed with Tampa. That's a mistake, but I cannot check up on every single player.

    As indicated by my post which should be read in pari passu with the roster, Trinec has mainly lost on the defense side. The only significant loss among their forwards is indeed Richard Panik. 2009/10 would have been his third season in the Extraliga and he was expected to step up. Let's see whether the CHL does anything good for his hockey career. I'm skeptical.

    Ok, thanks I just wanted to make sure.

    Well, about Panik, can you really say his third season in the Extraliga? He played minor minutes in about 30 games or so over the past two years, so 2009/2010 would be his first full season in the Extraliga therefore I just wouldn´t expect for Trinec to give him much of a role, although who knows with Stavjana, who´s not known for liking young players much gone to Slovan (to rebuild them all young, how ironic, eh?). But it just seemed to me that they would be able to replace what he´d potentially bring to the team by some other top junior, who might not be considred a top talent.

    As for his hockey career, I´m kinda skeptical about it either, but I would be even if he stayed in Europe, there just is something about him that makes me believe that he might not pan out. Although I have to say that I´d rather see him with Trinec and if he couldn´t get a solid spot there, it might be interesting to see what a few months playing with the Slovakia U20 team might do with him.

    55. Žajgla (Bordowski)- 15.Vorel (Procházka), 20.Dopita (Šelingr), 67. Mojžiš(Křetinský)

    As the quote in my post indicated, clearly a typo. Sorry, but it happens.

    Thanks for the extra result. Meeting between two ambitious clubs, P.S. remember to add (CZE-1) if its a 1. liga team and (CZE-2) if its a 2 liga team.

    Defenseman, Tomas Kurka currently practise with Ceske Budejovice and may extend his contract with the team. CB hasn't yet reached a compromise in its contract dispute with forward Radek Duda. A meeting in the concilation commision of the Czech federation failed to find a solution.

    Yet another Extraliga club has changed its name. HC Litvinov (formerly known as HC Chemopetrol Litvinov) will be called HC Benzina Litvinov. We will quietly ignore this and continue to call the team HC Litvinov.

    EDIT: Preseason games 30.07

    PSG Zlin (CZE) - Slovan Bratislava (SVK) 1-4 (1-1, 0-1, 0-2)
    HC Karlovy Vary (CZE) - Gazprom Orenburg (RUS-1) 6-3 (1-2, 0-1, 5-0)

    For these games, see international pre-season games thread.

    HC Plzen - BK Mlada Boleslav 4-1 (1-1, 3-0, 0-0)

    HC Pardubice - HC Kladno 4-2 (1-1, 2-1, 1-0)
    Note: Pardubice played without keyplayers Hasek, Havir, Sykora and Simicek.

    Sparta Praha has extended its contract with striker, Tomas Netik for one year. During the Summer, Netik has received offers from two KHL teams and he has also been considered by Swedish and Finnish teams. Sparta has limited means, but two parties agreed to a contract extension. Netik has produced 106 points for Sparta in the past three seasons so he is a significant addition to the club's offense.

    WOW! Hasek made his return to Czech hockey tonight and couldn't have wished for a better start. He got a shutout. More on this later tonight.

    It´s really nice for him , but still it was just a 1.liga team, I´ll be really convinced about him once he faces teams like Karlovy Vary or Sparta and does well against those.

    Well,

    1. The Czech 1st liga teams are quite competitive, at least at this early going. The cup was won by a 1st liga team (Kometa) last year, and today Slovan Ustecti beat Karlovy Vary, the champions.

    2. Hasek hasn't played for 1 1/2 year.

    On this background, I don't discount his shutout. Will have to read the news though
