I can't predict future or see things coming in advance, unlike some others on this board. That being said, I think he's nowhere near a "lock" as some suggest he is.

To the guy who pointed out Pacioretty - Stastny - Ryan... Ok... I get it. That being said, there are two legit RWers that are going to be there barring injuries in the olympics; Kane and Kessel. Ryan is not going to play off-wing anymore. So unless there's an injury, I just don't see Patches on the top-6.

Whether he's going to make the team or not will solely depend on which style of play the US management wants their bottom-6 to have.

If they want to roll a top-9 - bottom-line, Pacioretty has bigger chances.
If they roll a top-6 / bottom-6 like assistant-GM Brian Burke likes to have... I don't like his chances.
