Just because he doesn't have the olympic experience doesn't mean you shouldn't be sending arguably the best American center in the game to the olympics.
He is a lock in my mind. If he doesn't make it that is just absolute poor management by the American squad.
The only areas the US are "stacked" imo are Right wing and obviously goalies.
I think Stepan is close to being a lock.
Callahan is a lock. It depends on the coach, but Step is Callahans center. You get 2/3 of a checking line. Someone like Pavelski can play on the LW.
