Kind of weird that there hasn't been any information from USA Hockey yet on this team regarding an official GM, etc. We know it'll be a committee approach but you'd figured they would have announced the figurehead - Brian Burke - by now.

NHL season ends on April 7th and there's some real talent already guaranteed to be available. While the tournament doesn't start until May 4th, exhibition games will start about 3 weeks after the end of the season. Hopefully Burke and the rest of USA Hockey have already been in contact with Bobby Ryan, Erik Cole, Max Pacioretty, Erik Johnson, Jack Johnson, Phil Kessel, etc.

Edit: And we have our first confirmed player on the team...Bobby Ryan! Great way to start getting a forward of his caliber.
