    I'm very curious what team USA in the Olympics is going to look like. I for one have no idea. What does your team USA look like?

    Pomminville will replace one of those forwards.

    JVR-Stepan-Kane
    Parise-Pavelski-Ryan
    Pominville-Kesler-Kessel
    Brown-Backes-Callahan

    Suter-Yandle
    McDonagh-Shattenkirk
    J. Johnson-Martin

    Quick
    Schneider
    Howard

    Others: Pacioretty, Byfuglien, Galchenyuk, Wheeler

    And these lines aren't necessarily ordered best to worst, just lines I think work well together. Besides, order matters very little with a roster of this caliber.

    Pacioretty is better than JVR.

    As for Galchenyuk he would be a good choice, but I do agree there are better/more deserving/more experienced guys out there. Though, since Galchy likely is the American's top future star, he could be in as a 13th forward for the experience. He did lead the Americans to a WJC Gold last year.

    Stastny will be there given current and previous international play.

    Stastny deserves to make the team. He has played phenomenal this season

    He could maybe have a shootout specialist type role. I don't know if that warrants a roster spot though.

    If Stastny goes in, Pominville is likely out since he wasn't there last time.

    Which Forward would he make it over?
    Galchenyuk has almost no chance IMO

    I think Faulk should make it as the last D.

    I think Stastny and Pommers make it over Wheeler or Galchy if it comes down to them.

    You can't leave Erik Johnson out. He's been amazing this season.

    Stepan and Dubinsky have played well thus far and would be good choices. Brown needs to pick it up...hopefully his knee heals soon.

    If that's the case, why not take Trouba who was the Americans best player? Gibson, Trouba, and Gaudreau were better than Galchenyuk.

    This might be my view as a Canadian and Leafs fan...but doesn't it make the most sense to keep Kessel and JVR together? They have insane chemistry.
