However Peter is center, not winger and is able to play defensive role.
In my opinion he can skate in checking line as well. He is very
experienced player (5 world championships and around 100 games on

worst team of the league. Fantastic skater with killing speed and
acceleration. Soft hands and very good puckhandler. Typical offensive
forward but should work with the same effort on both ends. Robert is
very gifted player but was omitted in past years.
Other prospects: Martin Kulha (C/W, 07/08/1976, 6'2" 193 lb, Slovan/Poprad) hard working forward, able to score Tomas Nadasdi (D, 14/05/1980, 6'0" 189 lb, Kosice) very gifted player Jan Tabacek (D, 07/04/1980, 6'0" 170 lb, Martin) amazing skater, D-man with offensive potential Ivan Majesky (D, 02/09/1976, 6'5" 227, Ilves Tampere - Finnish League) big, strong blueliner Lubomir Sabol (C, 11/04/1980, 5'11" 182, Kosice) impressive rookie season
Short characteristics and stats of Kulha, Nadasdi, Tabacek & Sabol can be found in my previous article “Slovak Extraliga review”.

and Dopita created the best duo of the league. He is natural scorer, has
good acceleration and is a typical late bloomer. But beware him. If he
does not play on PP and 18-20 minutes at least he is frustrated and is
useless player on the team (e.g. world championship).
Richard Sechny (C, 19/10/1971, 6'5" 230 lb, Zvolen)
player of Extraliga. Impressive stats in regular season (70 points in 53
games) and leading scorer in the playoffs (19 points in 10 games). In my
previous article I have mentioned he would not play in America. However
after several discussions with the Tampa and Boston scouts he changed
the opinion and is ready to try the NHL hockey. He can succeed on NHL
but needs “European” type wingers.

is behind his zenith. He struggled with injuries in last two seasons.
Though he was contacted by LA and Minnesota I don’t think his is the NHL
