I like to have the forward group be a bit bigger as Patches, Wheeler, and JVR will bring that needed skill and size to the wings.. I also like Colin Wilson and Derek Stepan to jump ahead of Paul Stastny as both just simply have better overall skills and Wilson gives us much needed size down the middle. Stastny still has an excellent chance at making this team, but Wilson and Stepan are putting a lot of pressure on USA Hockey to pick both of them for this team.
