Jack Johnson for me is a shoe-in because of his relationship with USA hockey, pretty much locks the left side of the ice with JMFJ, McDonagh, and Suter.

Really what would be nice is if Bogosian comes back and plays just like he did last year. At that point I take him over Carlson, but I want a PK guy that can skate. If not I would even bring a guy like Scuderi who can play both sides. I think Erik Johnson has improved a lot and Shattenkirk should be there. That is two right handed D, bring Big Buff as the PP specialist 7th man or Fowler. That is just how I see it and the roles when I think of it but it is just my opinion. Also as stated previously Seth Jones should be invited to the summer camp and he also becomes a decent right side option if he plays his way onto the team, along Justin Faulk both those guys are coming on in a hurry as right handed options.
Carlson has just been terrible this year. That's all. I also agree that no way does Leddy get in over Yandle, but I have a hard time thinking Yandle doesn't make the team.
