1) I see we agree on almost all the players
2) You bring up a good point about having three guys on my roster who wee already given a good look this summer. I was impressed with Russo in the games of Notre Dame I've seen online. Looking forward to watching him (Schmaltz, Grimaldi, and Lucia too) live about a week before the roster comes out. May change my mind then.
3) I chose Samuelsson over Hartman because of skillset. Never have too many power forwards in your bottom six on Olympic ice and with the forward groups Russia, Canada, etc. are bringing.
4) You still like Kuraly after being invisible in his first nine games of the year? Yeah, he did have a good camp, but if you take that out of the equation he was a longshot to begin with.
