Jack Johnson made the U.S. Olympic team in 2010. Yandle was not even an alternate candidate.

JJ was the Captain for the US team at this year's World Championship. He will be on the Olympic team in 2014 - likely as an Assistant Captain. Johnson is also younger and (I believe) cheaper - contract and cap.

Now... Please explain why Yandle is at a (much) higher level than Jack Johnson.
You do realize we're talking about the NHL here, not Team USA? Don't get me wrong, I like JJ and think he has a chance to flourish in Columbus but right now his numbers in the NHL, which are all I care about, are not on par with Yandle. There is a reason Yandle is a 2 time all-star and JJ is a zero time all-star. Oh and yes JJ is younger...by 4 months.
