World Cup of Hockey: David Krejci, David Pastrnak and friends named to Team Czech Republic

The preliminary roster for Team Czech Republic's World Cup of Hockey team was released this morning, and both David Krejci and David Pastrnak were included.

Additionally, KHL superstar and former Bruin Vladimir Sobotka made the cut; after playing for the Blues for a few years, Sobotka left North America to play for Avangard Omsk two seasons ago.

The Czechs look to have some good scoring depth up front with an incredibly shallow defense and terrible goaltending; also...no Jagr, which is sad.

All I want out of this team is for a David-David-Vlad line to happen for like two seconds, and I'll be happy even if they don't win a damn thing. Make it happen, Josef Jandac.
