I think going by age, development curve (steadily upwards), and style of play (mobile, risk-free, can totally shut down opposing forwards while still having strong transitional skills), there isn't a player that better suits what team USA is trying to do save Suter.

Short of Burke suffering a freak head injury only to return with the weirdest boner for one-dimensional offensive defensemen, so many players will have to either break their development curves as defensive players or McDonaugh will have to regress so far in his own zone to get left off the roster.
