That post you quoted my friend was an updated version of the team, showing that it would still be an incredible team if assembled again today.

So lets hear your 2004 versions.

Its laughable that you say the difference between Buff and Likens or Pavelski, Callahan, and Backes over Moore, Wiener, Dowell or Fritsch were borderline. The difference was not borderline. USA Hockey picked the wrong players, period.
What are you even trying to say? The tournament was played in 2005, not 2012. It's a pointless exercise to complain about players who were selected in 2005 based on what they developed into. I'm sure Dave Bolland looks better on paper than Stephen Dixon, as does Travis Zajac with Jeremy Colliton while Mike Green and Brent Burns look nicer than Danny Syvret and Shawn Belle. Big whoop.
