    If by Coleman, you mean Mike Brown, than you'd be right. ;)

    If by Mike Brown, you mean the player that is leading the OHL in Goals Against Average, Save Percentage, Wins and Shutouts, then you would be right. ;)

    If I knew Colliton would be injured... Bolland in, Colliton out. This hopefully won't hurt Canada too badly as we have enough grinders and penalty killers to step up with Colliton down.

    I never liked the idea of carrying two injured players into the tournament because injured players are slightly more likely to get hurt again because they most likely will want back in before they are truly ready to do so.

    Coleman would have been a good choice for the US in net, but you really couldn't argue with the selection of Schneider at the time. He was playing really well for his team and is a good goaltending prospect. Coleman didn't benefit from being the OHL though with Team USA's hierarchy.

    Disagree...Likens has been your worse defenceman, and Hagemo has been alright IMO. Take out Likens or Lee for Johnson.

    I'd subtract the entire Team USA defence minus Ryan Suter and insert the first set of pylons I could find.

    You'd actually be improving the defense, as Suter would be out there all the time.

    Right now, as a result of the injury, I'd take out Jeremy Colliton and insert Alexandre Picard (F).

    Subtract Likens, put in Johnson. That's the easiest answer in the world.

    Probably should have been a player from the Camp ..

    If they wanted to replace Colliton's offensive role then Eric Fehr
    If they wanted to replace Colliton's energy checking role then Ryan Stone

    Unless :

    If they were thinking about WJC in Vancouver in 2006 then Gilbert Brule

    My thoughts exactly. Fehr and Stone would be the 2 best Canadians to step onto this roster. Getting Brule some experience now might also be a good idea.

    If Coleman played for Saginaw and Brown for London, their stats would be reversed.

    I like Coleman's game, but it's pretty clear Mike Brown is a better goalie (ability wise) than Coleman, his personality isn't as stellar as Coleman's though...

    How anyone on Team USA never got out to watch Dustin Byfuglien in Prince George is beyond me.

    Tell me that he couldn't have added something to that blueline...

    He didn't even get the chance to tryout.

    The thing I don't get is that he played for the USNDP and won a gold medal at the U18 with them. :dunno:

    And Boomhauer, I think Coleman has proven that he can win with a good team in front of him. I will conceed that Brown is the better NHL prospect.

    That said, I think there is room for both on the USA roster, given the performance of Montoya and Schneider. ;)
