The US doesn't have the luxury of inviting all the best players like Canada does. They have to make a team. They have to have their top six, their checking/gritty third line, and their energy fourth line. You can see it in the guys they invited. They've got their top six players Galchenyuk/Miller/Noeson, Matteau/Biggs for the third line, and role players like Vesey and Pietila.

If I'm correct, Samuelsson is just like Matteau/Biggs/Hartman. From what I've read/heard, Matteau and Biggs have played much better than him. For that reason, he'd have to beat out those two and/or Hartman for that role.
