You are incredibly pessimistic then. USA has only 3 forwards I would even consider for Canada, and Kesler would be a big question mark depending on how well he recovers from his injury. Parise and Kane are the other two, and neither would be a lock at this point. A guy like Spezza has basically no chance of making Canada, and he would be the unquestioned #1 centre for USA. There is a big gap here.
I don't disagree with any of that. Perhaps I over-compensate for trying to avoid national bias. it's not uncommon. ) There's no question, there isn't a country out there that can match Canada's depth at center ice.
