Foreign cartoons are ratings gold

Vancouver Canucks Op Ed posted a hockey cartoon yesterday that is in a foreign language, and they're curious at to what it says. I'm posting it here, too, because my foreign readership is inexplicably large — and because I need to know what "Gretzky bude asi koukat" is:

OK, here's my best effort to translate it... get over here Jes.

Ok, that is DRY ICE (Suchy Led) posted on the Litvinov site (Reichel's club)

From what me and my girlfriend can translate

1st box: I gave myself (promised myself) a commitment to get many points, like penalty minutes.

As for the 3rd box, this gives us trouble. I don't know the verb 'koukat' and it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense...

It might be "Gretzky will probably be watching", but don't take my word for it

literally, it's "Gretzky will be perhaps peep"

Man, I knew it was going to be good — but this good!

Gretzky will be perhaps koukat! Woo.

I'm more interested by the fact the Slovaks apparently have an answer to the Sedins.

Are they cloning players overseas now? I know the Slovakian Olympic team was sort of shy a few top forwards, but these are drastic measures.
