HS depending on who has the better seasons: J. Staal, E. Staal, Getzlaf, Richards, Nash
other HS: Depending on who has the better seasons: Phaneuf, Myers, Del Zotto, Subban. Not sure about Myers since he's the one I watch the least, but I hear some great things about him so I included him. Maybe a prospect from a draft could even sneek in like Murray, Reinhart, Dumba or even Seth Jones who knows.
Goalies will depend on who will have the best seasons, but if we go according to potentiel then this is how I see it. If those 4 can play at their 100% ,then any of them is a great choice although the USA will also have a pretty strong goalie pool as well.
Here are my comments:
Duchene will likely not be on the team. The guy has skills, but absolutely no hockey sense whatsoever. Lots of flash, not very effective. Kane is about the same, he's stronger and faster though and can play a power type game, maybe Kane makes it. Sharp really shouldn't be there. He isn't a big scorer, and he's not really 2-way, and he was terrible this year at the worlds. James Neal I'm not sold on, but if he keeps producing, hey, maybe he gets a sniff at the team. Again, Hall has done nothing to merit being on this team as of yet.
Mike Green? Really, Mike Green? Enough said about that.
