Sochi 2014: David Krejci makes Team Czech, nobody is surprised whatsoever

USA TODAY Sports

Hey here's the roster, and this is Krejci. Oh there's Jagr so medal, ba-DAMMIT PAVELEC CLOSE YOUR FIVE HOLE

The Czech Republic released their Team Czech 2014 Olympic Roster today, and to the surprise of no one, David Krejci made the team. He's projected to play on the first line with Patrik Elias and Jaromir Jagr, according to this NHL.com projection.

Of course he is. He centers the line that's arguably one of the best in hockey, and is primarily responsible for getting it to be that way. The Czechs would have to be crazy not to slot him in there. Only mildly baffling is the fact that he wasn't named in any sort of leadership role. Apparently the Czechs prefer Habs to Bruins, because Tomas Plekanec is the captain. What even?

Czech yourself for a second, though - because look who else made the team. Old friend Vladimir Sobotka!
