Some recent info from Bob McKenzie:

USA Hockey won't name Olympic GM until NHL makes Olympic commitment official. But USA Hockey is likely to want its GM to be active NHL GM.

If so, that would preclude Brian Burke from returning in his role as Team USA GM even tho he came within 1 OTG of winning the gold medal.

NSH GM David Poile, who was Burke's associate on U.S. Olympic team in 2010, would be most likely candidate as U.S. GM.
Interesting tidbit. I don't think it really matters who gets the official title of team GM. Other than being the spokesperson, all the other GMs would seem to have equal input if they follow the 2010 approach.
