some players that I would love to see on this USA squad right now if standings hold up :

Nate Gerbe
Tyler Johnson
Drew Stafford
Drew Shore
Peter Mueller
John Carlson
Aaron Palushja
Erik Johnson -see how he looks in a #1 dman spot

all pretty realistic names that would be welcome additions from what we normally have to pull to get..

I also concur that we will see either Jones or Trouba as well as possibly Gaudreau...just my gut tells me that kid will get a chance with this team this year.
Yikes, Gerbe and Stafford have been healthy scratches for a bad Buffalo team this year. That's a very bad sign.

The real test will be whether Ryan Miller accepts an invite. Assumine he's still on the Sabres.

Wouldn't hold out hope for EJ. Seems like over the last couple years he's found any excuse not to play in the Worlds. He's not as bad as Umburger, but it's been bad.
