the curious case of pavol cervanak :p i remember watching him live a few yrs ago already, he seemed talented, but it looks like he couldn't deliver good game for more than a few shots in a row, or was collapsing in the wrong moments... maybe he finally capitalizes on it? any ideas who is his coach now or something?
