Well, I'd think Miller and Quick are before him on the USA radar. All comparable talents but 2 of which are currently playing. Not sure about 3rd string goalie though. Maybe he'd be there for mentorship, experience and all that. Assuming they don't just go with someone else as Miller and Quick are both elite Gs on their own.

Suffice to say, I think Thomas' break won't get him an olympic spot EVEN if he comes back. The top 2 looks set and 3rd string is anybody's guess but they can always go low maintenance 3rd G.
