I'm Canadian, but I have to say I think Team USA has a great chance at winning gold in Sochi (if the NHL allows its players to participate).

Most of my favorite players right now are American; Callahan, Parise, Backes, Kessel, Kesler (except for his damn diving nonsense), JJohnson, Suter -- and then you've got the slew of excellent American goaltenders (Quick, Thomas, Miller, Howard, etc.)

I think it will also be good for the marketability of hockey in the US if there are more homegrown players on the teams -- especially when they're core players and captains.
a lot of young upcoming talent in the NHL is American. Great for the sport. They are doing a great job developing players in the states.
