I don't want to derail a Canada thread, but since the U.S. being mentioned......
There's no doubt that the U.S. depth at forward-at least at center, lags a bit behind countries like Canada. That said, the winger depth is good and there are several quality playmaking options there. To me, the U.S. brass will probably follow a template that led the WJC to success this year:
* Quality goaltending that can allow the defense to take chances
* A mobile, offensively gifted defense that will have few if any bangers
* Scoring by commitee up front
* A tenancious and physical forecheck
I think we have the pieces to execute that style of play and do well.
