This team looks like one that is going to have to play ol' time Hockey. They will be getting back to the traditional ugly style game because they simply lack the fire power that previous US teams had. However considering what happened to last year's team, which was supposed to be one of the deepest and most skilled US teams ever, that may be a good thing. American players seem to step up when they are brushed aside as also rans. Hopefully that is the case this year.

The guys who can get their passports ready, mail them to the embassy and have their bags packed are:

Johnny Gaudreau
Alex Galchenyuk
JT Miller

Jacob Trouba
Seth Jones

John Gibson


You can probably feel safe booking the one good hotel in Ufa for the family:

Rocco Grimaldi
Stefan Noesen


Guys who should make it but have question marks due to outside circumstances:

Nick Kerdiles
Mario Lucia


Guys in the mix at different positions

LW:

Jimmy Vesey
Stefan Matteau
Reid Boucher

RW:

Riley Barber
Tyler Biggs
Ryan Hartman
Adam Erne

C:

Brady Vail
Vince Trochek
Sean Kuraly


Defense is a real crap shoot with a lot of similar players in terms of talent.

Shayne Gostisbehere
Conor Murphy
Patrick Sieloff
Jack McCabe
Mike Reilly
Matt Grzelcyk
