Lee didn't look great in his last start against Denver, but he's still going to be Blais's guy. Deano believes in Mike.
Joe Howe (who was no slouch in the USHL last season) is having a phenomenal start with Colorado College. He has basically carried the team to a 10-3-1 start. With a college hockey bias on Blais's part, I think he takes Howe. I don't think that's a bad idea either... the USA can have Campbell the next two years.
Actually, I don't believe Blais has a college hockey bias, which is refreshing for a change. I agree that Lee is the guy, but Campbell is the next face of USA Hockey goaltending and will more than likely make the team, at least as a back-up.
