    A few players that will surprise:

    Jeff Zatkoff
    Carl Sneep
    Rhett Rakhshani
    Chad Rau

    A few players who will be overmatched:

    Tim Filangieri
    Matt Butcher
    Jim Fraser


    All in all, this should be the most impressive array of talent the U.S. has been able to gather at the eval camp.

    as far as i know the roster hasnt changed. i was hoping sanguinetti and maybe a top 89 would some how sneek in there, but that doesnt look to be the case. i really want to see how pat kane plays at this camp. id also like to see what sneep, fischer and sweatt do bc i think they are on the bubble and a strong camp could help them out.

    Any thoughts on what Taylor Chorney's role will be this year? Any chance he gets to play on one of the two top pairings for the Americans?

    He was basically benched for the U18 games. Why would he be invited to this?

    Everyone sees the hype on the boards, therefore they think he must be invited because he's a "top prospect."

    Anyways, I don't think Butcher is going to get outshined like you think he is, he's quite the respectable player.

    A couple of changes with the roster. It doesn't look like either Johnson will attend. Sean Zimmerman and Mike Ratchuk have taken their place.

    Hopefully Zimmerman can impress at this camp. Hes a very steady D man, who you dont notice for all the right reasons. Itd be nice to see him make the team in what is likely his last year of junior, seeing as he signed with NJ.

    Why aren't either Johnsons attending? Jack will probably make Carolina but Erik said he is still playing in college. Also is Nigel Williams on the roster?

    Johnsons are pretty much on the team, probably have camps or stuff like that. This is for others to shine.

    Williams is not there.

    I think the U-18 tournament and the depth of the US blueline have a lot to do with it. Maybe he'll get consideration for next year depending on how he performs at Wisconsin this upcoming season.

    I guess you missed the fact that he was absolutely dreadful in the U18s and was practically benched any time he could be.

    The U-18 tourny was the nail in the coffin for any chance he had at the U-20s.

    He has an absolute ton to prove and I hope he can prove me and everyone wrong. I'm not holding my breath, though.
