If you ever need a pic for "The third place sucks.."

HC Pilsen lost the semi-finals series of the Czech Extraleague yesterday. The team's old, old owner/manager/player:

I can't remember who did it but there was a fast forward montage that they did of Straka back in the day and it was genius. I forget what the music was that it was set to, but I remember laughing the whole way through. When he was in his prime he played the game at warp speed the whole time.

I can't think of Straka without also thinking of Kovalev and Lang. The same goes for the other two.

My first reaction was, "hey, the guy looks just like Martin Straka"... :(

Yeah, also one of my favorite players.

He's not sad his team came in 3rd, he's sad because he was told he has to go lift weights because of the loss.

Thanks Tomas. Martin Straka was one of my favs too. I was heartbroken when he played for other teams.

Not surprisingly, one of my sons is named Martin!

Martin Straka was one of my favorites as a kid, he always seemed to be running on the ice. Hated when he scored with like a second left in OT against the Pens as a Ranger one time. Glad to see he's still playing.
