Extraleague Update Machine: 10-08-04

Lots of news and stats from Freaky Friday in the homeland...

First, the news:

1. Martin Cibak wanted a higher level of competition, so he's leaving Liptovsky Mikulas (although he played for them today) of the Slovak Extraleague and will join Martin Straka, Milan Kraft, and Jaro Spacek with Plzen of the Czech Extraleague.

2. Richard Zednik made his debut with pal Vladimir Orszagh (pictured) for HKm Zvolen today. 'Zed' finished with an assist in a big win over evil Bratislava.
Zvolen is also in talks with Michal Handzus (who rejected evil Slovan, yay!) and Ivan Majesky.

3. Jozef Stumpel wanted to play for his hometown club of Nitra, but Slavia coach/GM Vladimir 'Rosy' Ruzicka wouldn't let him. Obviously, Ruzicka doesn't want to lose both Palffy and Stumpel at the same time. (Thanks to Daniel for this info)

4. Also as per Daniel, Miroslav Satan will announce Tuesday if he'll be prepared to play for evil Bratislava (it would be fitting) or not. If Satan went back to Trencin, that would almost be too unfair to the rest of the the league, wouldn't it?

5. Juraj Kolnik was considering playing with his brother in Nitra, but will stay in the AHL with San Antonio to be closer to his wife and son. (poor Nitra! rejected twice.)

6. Branko Radivojevic will be out 3-4 weeks now with an injury. Fortunately for Vsetin, they just signed his Flyers teammate Radovan Somik to play for them.
