I thought last Olympics was played on small ice?
Anyway, McDonagh is absolutely essential for USA on big ice. 1st or 2nd pairing minutes are a must with his skating. He can match anyone stride for stride. Chasing down Kovalchuk and Kessel specifically come to mind.
Callahan made it on reputation and I have no clue how Stepan is there. Still pretty exciting to have three of our guys represent that team.
I think Nash makes Canada on his reputation, Lundqvist and Hagelin for Sweden, Zuccarello for Norway. Does Stralman have a shot?
It really is a shame what's happening to Marc Staal. Not too long ago. I remember him being pencilled in for this tournament. Actually in 11-12 Sportsnet did a little prediction thing and one of the guys had Staal, Girardi, and Del Zotto as an extra for Team Canada. How times have changed over such a short period of time, haha.
