Quick is questionable, he likely won't even half a month of play under his belt coming back from a groin injury (serious for a goalie) and Howard has not been very good at all this year.

Bishop has been ridiculous and should have at least been considered for the third goalie, at least over Howard.
i dont disagree just stating USA's reasoning. not the best players but the right players. thats BS. Orpik should be nowhere near this team. and what does wheeler bring that Ryan doesnt? Orpik is only there to be paired with Martin because of the coach and i cant Wheeler i guess because he and Stepan had chemistry before. terrible reasoning by USA. oh well go America.
