Classy Move, Chara.

Classy. Tragic, but classy.
Classy. Tragic, but classy.

I don't know how many of you saw Zdeno Chara do this on Sunday after the Russia-Slovak Gold Medal game had ended, Chara was wearing a #38 Demitra jersey post game and when he received the silver plate he looked up the the sky and pointed at his old buddy Demitra in salute. Demitra and his Yaroslavl teammates perished in a tragic plane crash last September. Miroslav Satan mentioned after the celebrations that the team had Pavol on their minds and that the silver medal "was for him."

Classy stuff by the Slovaks. You have to remember, Demitra is a hockey idol in Slovakia. Rest in peace, Pavol.
