    Not as good as Canada's B-Squad or maybe even the C-Squad but USA is probably the only other nation that can field a decent second team of NHLers. Thoughts?

    The Czechs also have a lot of decent players, but I can't think up two teams for them.

    Does Arnason consider himself American? I know he was born in Oklahoma City when his dad was playing there, but he grew up in Winnipeg. He didn't play at the World Championships for the US the last couple years either and he's better than quite a few players on those teams so he would have probably have been invited.

    That D squad isn't half bad.

    I do believe Tyler Arnason considers himself Canadian.

    He grew up in Manitoba and was a massive Jets fan at an early age.

    actually, in an interview he said just the opposite. he said that in many ways, he feels canadian...but at heart considers himself an american.

    LeClair shouldn't be on the team. And there has to be a goalie better than Boucher.
