Too bad Yandle, Byfuglien, Jack Johnson and Matt Carle aren't on the team.

And after looking at Oshie's stats, I should replace Van Riems with Oshie.

I still feel confident we can get the gold. Very deep in forwards and goalies. We can score and keep others from getting in the net. Canada's goalies are poor. We should exploit that.

The defense will carry us, that is a good group and you know it's good when you have to leave guys like Keith Yandle and Jack Johnson off.

 

Somewhat surprised that Cam Fowler got in over Yandle.

with a good handful of American super stars not making it, I think it was a personal decision for some of them and they chose not to go.

Good article about how the team was formed and why Ryan was left off.
