You drill down enough and you get a reshuffled NHL.
Hell you could put together 2 US Teams that could medal if spread out. For instance:
Team A/B Candidates
G - Miller - Anderson - Quick - Schneider - Bishop - Thomas
D - Buff - Suter - Johnson - Johnson - Yandle - McDonagh - Orpik - Shattenkirk - Carlson
Bogosian - Faulk - Gleason - Wisniewski - Jones
F - Kesler - Kane - Pavelski - Backes - Stepan - Galchenyuk - Legwand - Umberger
Parise - JVR - Pacioretty - Booth - Saad - Wheeler - Malone - Kreider - Kessel - Ryan
Brown - Callahan - Gionta - Stafford - Stastny - Bjugstad - Coyle - Palmieri
