Here's a look at the potential roster, taken from the WJC board
Gibson hasn't played in a couple of weeks - hip flexor. I hear he's expected to be close to 100% when the WJC starts and if he can shed the rust quickly, he's a huge piece to the US team. The kid is fun to watch - SO calm, cool and collected. He doesn't get flustered.
