Samuelsson was not a shock imo...plus he has next year as well.

Nieves (who I liked a lot) had no shot this year as USA Hockey really has no love for him. He has another shot next year, and seeing how he did go the college route playing for a Michigan power, he should easily be in the running if he continues to impress next year. the kid has size and skill, and though he has been labeled a perimiter player, I think he can bring some jam next year to this team and be in consideration for a top 6 role.
