    part A) rank the forwards, defensemen and goalies

    heres the roster to rank the players from:

    Alvaro Montoya
    Dominic Vicari

    Matt Carle
    Matt Hunwick
    Jeff Likens
    Corey Potter
    Dan Richmond
    Mark Stuart*
    Ryan Suter
    James Wisniewski

    David Booth
    Jake Dowell
    Patrick Eaves
    Dan Fritsche
    Ryan Kesler*
    Greg Moore*
    Brady Murray
    Patrick O'Sullivan*
    Zach Parise
    Drew Stafford
    Brett Sterling
    Stephen Werner

    now i know part of building a team is not just choosing the top players, but i would like to know what you think of some players who didnt make it
    so
    part B) where do you think the following players would fit in those rankings if they had made team usa:

    Gerald Coleman
    Cory Schneider (i know thats way out but I've heard incredible things)

    Jimmy Sharrow
    John Doherty

    Hugh Jessiman
    Rob Schremp
    Dan Travis
    Brian Boyle
    Adam Pineault
    T.J. Hensick
    Josh Hennessy

    Kesler
    O'Sullivan
    Fritsche
    Eaves
    Moore
    Murray
    --------I don't know much about the following.
    Sterling
    Stafford
    Dowell
    Booth
    Werner

    I will say that I am surprised looking at the names on the list....Jessiman, Hennessy, Schremp(Has some issues with USA Hockey so I don't think it was talent that left him off the team), Pineault are all highly touted.

    If I were choosing unless Jessiman has some severe skating deficiency that I don't know about, he would be on the team, as well as the other three having good shots. Not watching their camp, you can't always know why some guys make it and some guys don't. Considering that Jessiman when drafted figured he was only 1 or 2 years away from playing for the Rangers, I find his omission very surprising.

    now i know they blamed Dustin Brown's withdrawal from team usa on the "ankle sprain"...but i'm wondering, could this be just a ploy from his SCSM agent as part of the Rob Schremp saga, getting back at USA for not picking rob? or is this ankle thing real?

    He's a big 'project' power forward who played for Deerfield Academy last season in the New England prep league. He was drafted by Florida in the fifth round of last years draft. He's playing NCAA hockey at New Hampshire this season. He is too old to play for the US WJC squad but he probably wouldn't have made the team anyway.

    Travis was a senior last year. He's a late '83 birthdate.

    You would really put Eaves behind Moore? I agree with you on most other picks that you've made but the only guy I'd have ahead of Eaves is Parise (although I never got to see Kesler play in the NCAA, which is where I assume you're basing your opinions on). Eaves is one of my favorites in all of college hockey.

    Also, Travis is a forward so I'm not sure why you list him amongst d-men. Has New Hampshire been playing him at D?

    I'm a Maine fan so I have bias and i'm not sure i'd rank Moore above Eaves. But Moore is a Power Forward with a capital P. As a Sophmore he has been a man among boys in many of Maine's games so far. His improvement from last year to this year is mind boggling. He said he worked on his agility this summer and you can see his speed has increased alot which compliments his shot and hands. I think alot of people will see that Calgary got a steal in the 5th round.

    Just to clarify, I wasn't trying to put Moore down. I've seen him a couple of times this year and he looked really good each time. It's just that I really like Eaves a lot.

    It's real... he's on the IR for the LA Kings too, disappointing, but since he got drafted by the Kings he's likely to be plagued by injuries until he either gets off the team, or (more preferably) the Kings shake the injury bug... :mad:

    I didn't take it that way. I have no love loss for Eaves, but he's a great player in the NCAA. And he will be a big part of the WJC team.
