Have a chance:
Ullmark (Sweden) - he's got a couple goalies to fight off to secure a spot, Dansk is a lock to start for them
McCabe (USA) - I think he'll be there for USA, not sure how big a role he'll get though
Catenacci (Canada) - unlikely but possible
The question is will the Sabres release Girgensons? Carolina said no on Faulk last year, because he was NHL ready, but if Rochester is short on forwards, I'd have to think the Sabres would say no. I posed a question on the US junior thread off the main board about Jacobs and Nelson (since the US seems to be weak at center outside of Galchenyuk). No response yet. I'd have to think their chances are slim, largely due to the Canadian Junior biased that the US has, not to mention that both are having average years, but not "playing their way onto the team".
