Well, i think one thing that speaks against this is that he might want some redemption on the national team since both the olympics and world cup. Surely some of them must want to, somewhat maybe do a Michael Nylander who was passed over for team sweden for the 2006 olympics, then came to the world championships and redeemed himself some with claiming the gold.

Kane would be an unbelievable add. Give me Seth Jones too!

Shannon (SN) made it sound like it's a sure thing. I don't think he would do that if there wasn't a reason for it. I believe Kane is going. Even though it's truly "unbelivable" and I will certainly wait for the official confirmation by USAHockey.

That would make for a very deep US team.

Finally a complete roster.

Need Gaudreau to accept invite and Toronto to be eliminated so we get the top line of Gaudreau-Matthews-Kane that will destroy everyone in the tournament.

I think there are a few things at play here-

These ESPN articles that have pretty much trashed USA Hockey and those that haven't answered the call have to be getting read by the players as the last one was just a few days ago.

Kane is obviously the face of USA Hockey right now - he is in the top 3-5 players in the World, and our biggest star. If he comes to this thing, it finally opens the door for the rest of the club to get on board as this tournament matters - I can't even stress how HUGE this is if Kane comes because it has repercussions that will be felt for years - our star players will start to take this seriously.

For Kaner I will say this:
A. Not married
B. No kids
C. Had a great healthy regular season/crappy playoffs - still wants to play hockey
D. No Olympics

These factors have to be big reasons why he would come. Yes, he has also talked glowingly about all his times playing for USA since his USNDP days, so there is patriotism there...and likely since he has been with the Hawks he really hasn't had much chance to even play for this team as the Hawks have gone deep in the playoffs more times than not..and if they did lose early, it was a hard fought series typically right after a Stanly Cup winning grind the year prior - for Kane, back to back playoff loses has obviously not wore him down.

I am anxiously awaiting the official news of this, but if Kane is coming, I am 100% positive that all the other top names available will be asking to play as well - Jones, Atkinson, Gaudreau, Tkachuk, Saad, etc.. are all young and who the hell wouldn't want to play with Kane and Eichel for 2 more weeks??

with Kane, 5 spots left - likely 2 more forwards and 3 defense...unless they just want to carry 7 dmen, but with one of them a college kid, I think they go 8.

Patrick Kane to join Team USA for 2017 Worlds, per report

No longer in the NHL playoffs, Kane will represent the red, white, and blue in Europe.

Blackhawks beat writer Chris Kuc is saying the same thing- Kane is coming to the Worlds to play for team USA!!

awesome we got Johnny to go. I hope we leave that last spot available until the Leafs/ Caps series is over and offer a spot to Matthews.
and if the Bruins don't come back maybe we could get McAvoy/ Carlo if he's healthy.
and all those Blue Jackets, hopefully Jones at least.

we do need that final forward spot (unless we only go with 7d) to be a center - I am sure they are waiting on Coyle to be honest, most logical choice for this team if Wild lose.

Nothing on Boston that can help - Toronto might go 7 games..

Galchenyuk is possible as well, and he would likely come but had a real rough final 20 games..

Johnny Hockey is one of those guys who loves playing for the US. Doesn't matter where. No surprise he accepted. That last spot with the forwards is saved for Auston Matthews. Don't see Toronto beating both Washington and Pittsburgh, so I doubt they add any forwards until they hear from Auston first. He'll probably accept and this team will be incredible offensively

15 forwards is way too much. 14 forwards and 8 d. Björk and Greenway can share 13 forward position and Brickley probably 8th defensemen.

I think adding all the college players so early was short sighted and dumb

Not much incentive for Flyers/Canadian GM Ron Hextall to sign Ghost before the World Champs since that would allow him to play for the USA with the security of a guaranteed deal.
