    When the USA team is announced which should be today, i'd like to know everyones thought on line combinations. I don't know much about the players on the team except Schremp and O'Sullivan, i've read about Johnson and Kessel but thats it.

    Will Schremp be a 1st line player or 2nd? I forget what position O'Sullivan is, if he's a Centre then i'm guessing Schremp would be the 2nd line centre.

    Not a clue, but looks like Weller is the 13th forward, which sucks! Not only being a Sens fan, but going to Clarkson too... Looks like he's leaving the team to sit and watch for 10 days... DAMN!

    I wouldn't say that. I think it's likely Weller plays on the fourth line with Mike Brown and Jake Dowell. Here are the lines/defensive pairings cagney suggested:

    Stafford-O'Sullivan-Callahan
    Porter-Fritsche-Schremp
    Bourque-Hensick-Pineault
    Weller-Dowell-Brown
    Kessel

    Suter-Likens
    Hagemo-Goligoski
    Hunwick-Lee
    Borer

    Montoya
    Schneider

    I'm only familiar with a handful of these players, but the third line looks a little on the small side with Bourque and Hensick.

    They're both small but neither is soft. I think the two of them would complement each other well as they're both pretty creative. There aren't really a lot of big forwards to go around on the roster. They could decide to move one of the guys I have on the fourth line up I suppose but I just like the look of those three together. I wouldn't be surprised if the lines Sandelin ends up using don't look much like what I've got down.

    Hensick, Borque and Porter played on a line the final day of camp in August and really looked good together. I wouldn't be shocked to see Sandelin try these guys together.
