Yeah I'm sure USA hockey is thrilled to be calling guys like JT Brown and Ryan Lasch to represent the team every year when other players say no. There is generally a big enough pool of players to make a pretty competitive team every year, but with so many defections it's difficult. If you don't put the work in for the program, you basically have to be a superstar that the team can't ignore.
