That article by ESPN provided great insight. Terrific read.

I thought it was ridiculous that Orpik was considered a lock from the beginning. I understand that Bylsma is the coach, but Orpik doesn't even deserve to be in discussion for the team. He just isn't good enough. Sounds like he is just the 7th D-Man, so its not that big of a deal, although I think he should be 8th. Fowler is a better D-Man than Orpik. Hope what was said in that article isn't the way that it will be in Sochi. I think the two Pittsburgh guys should be the 7th and 8th D-Man on the team.

I understand why Ryan wasn't picked. They want to be play a very conservative style. I still would have picked Ryan over Oshie. Yandle not making it was another travesty. Again, I understand why, but Yandle got shafted. Orpik should not have been on the team, Yandle should have.

This is how I see the lines:

Parise-Pavelski-Kane
JVR-Kesler-Kessel
Pacioretty-Stepan-Wheeler
Brown-Backes-Callahan
Do Not Dress: Stastny-Oshie

Suter-Carlson
McDonagh-Faulk
Fowler-Shattenkirk
Do Not Dress: Martin-Orpik


Quick
Miller
Howard
