Jones and Galychenuk were huge losses last year, but are there any top end undrafted players in the mix this year?

I think the top five unit USA can ice is as good as anyone, but I see a real lack of depth on the squad. What is a realistic finish for USA?
The US seems to do better in the underdog role mentally. A lot of things went wrong last year and I won't rehash them, but this isn't the most talented US team ever. It will play the typical American game of speed and effort.

Only draft eligible player this year is JOnes.

Realistic finish is anywhere. Good or bad.
