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?
I agree with what Bonney just said, a shot at a bronze medal is a pretty realistic expectation for this team right now, but if they can get solid goaltending and solid defense and if there offense can contribute with guys like Noesen, Lucia, Trocheck, Vesey stepping up and contributing with players like Gaudreau, Galchenyuk, Grimaldi, JT Miller then this team could shock some people and make a run for the gold.
