    I like all those lines, but the 2nd one in particular could be sick. Pineault not only has lot of skill, but his size is very welcome with the two smurfs.

    no but they have 13 forwards so right now he's the odd man out. which isn't that surprising considering how much younger he is then everyone else

    I like those lines a lot better then Day 1's.

    Those are definitely represent a scary ability for the US to produce offense.

    Those three played on a line together a lot at the Evaluation Camp in August, and they looked pretty good together then.

    They should switch O'Sullivan and Schremp. I think Schremp and Stafford would look great together!

    Nice lines.

    O'Sullivan, Schremp, Fritsche, Pineault, and Stafford are all gamebreakers.

    Who is Callahan? Was he drafted?

    Like I said before.....this team is set up for offense only.....their forwards are pretty scary offensivly. If their defense and goaltending holds up they will be a threat.

    Yup, Rangers pick. He could have a solid tournament, and is being overlooked a bit.

    My main concern is whether the smallish defense will be man-handled by the bigger forwards on teams like Russia and Canada. If they can cope, I think the U.S. has a great chance to medal.
