Pretty good, kinda surprised no JJ, I think he not only makes it but could be the "C." It's possible he's not one of our top-7 but he always seems to turn it up when he puts that USA jersey on and has shown an uncanny amount of loyalty to the national team program over the years. While others look for any excuse not to play in the Worlds, he's always answered the call. I think he gets rewarded for that.

Just curious, we have a lot of good young defensemen, and Leddy is definitely one. What makes you want to pick him over the rest of the group (like Fowler, Faulk, Gardiner)?

I really hope JVR starts tearing it up in the NHL when the lockout ends, I'd love to see him reach his full potential and become the kind of player we know he can be. He was starting to show signs before the concussion issues, let's hope now that he's had a lot of time off and gets a fresh start with a new team that he really breaks out.
