    "At this year's tournament, most amateur scouts couldn't figure out why such high-end defensemen like Minnesota Wild 2004 first-round pick A.J. Thelen, National Team Development Program stud Jack Johnson (rated No. 2, behind Sydney Crosby, by Red Line Report for the 2005 draft) and Ontario Hockey League bruiser Matt Lashoff were left off the team. The decision to omit Johnson was even more difficult to understand considering 17-year-old Moorhead (Minn.) High School defender Brian Lee was rarely allowed to stray from Team USA's bench."

    This sums it up.

    Everyone knows Johnson should have been there. Lee was useless at the tournament.

    Still shaking my head on Johnson not being there
     
  5. Seriously a projected no. 1 Defenceman is left off a roster, and you wonder WHY there's a lack of leadership!! If only there was more pride in past hockey success, there would have been a better turnout
