    It's upon us soon gentlemen, USA roster announced today. I liked seeing Stepan make it, but far too many snubs for my liking. How was Miller considered a lock, when you have Schneider playing some of the best hockey of his career. Justin Falk over Andy Greene?

    No Bobby Ryan or Okposo?

    Leaving Bobby Ryan off, though a snub, makes sense. He's a poor skater who plays little defense and would probably be a third line player...makes sense to go with someone like Wheeler over Callahan.

    The biggest mistakes were on defense...to not have Yandle on this roster is seriously mind blowing, and Orpik was a great player but is going to be a turnstile on the bigger ice. I don't think this team will be able to compete like some might expect.
