I don't understand why everyone is still swinging from Erik Johnson's nuts. He's an average NHL defensemen and doesn't seem to be getting any better. I'm not even sure he's in our top 7 right now let alone in two years with guys like Carlson, Faulk, Fowler, and Shattenkirk developing so rapidly.

Just because a guy was a former #1 overall pick does not mean he should be an automatic inclusion. You don't see Canada considering bringing Alexandre Daigle to Sochi, do you?
