I could see Dubinsky on the team too. I don't know who he'll replace because basically every forward there is better, but he has a chance

Kreider isn't even in the NHL yet, so calm down it's not that crazy. and the only hole realistically open as it looks right now is one or two spots, which in that case would be Fowler or Shattenkirk.

Shattenkirk >>>>>> McDonagh.

It's too early to tell though.

Who are other names for goalers to replace Thomas if he isn't able to play in 2014?

Unless Erik Johnson comes into his own there is no way he should make it over Ryan Whitney and Paul Martin. Personally, I'd take Martin.

Hockey wise, you are correct. But McDonagh's first name is Ryan, which clearly gives him the edge.

Sorry, your're wrong. Erik Johnson is coming into his own and was a stud on the last Olympic team. He'll be there for sure. I think the ship has passed on both Whitney and Martin.

I can definitely see a role for an Orpik or Martin type guy, you've got to have a guy who can handle a ton of PK time.

It's looking like the top 3 next Olympics will be Canada/USA/Sweden. Sweden's defence is just unreal.

I believe John Carlsson will be a top-4 defenseman on that squad.

Yes. there are a few spots open in the bottom 6 (and as the 13th forward)

I'd probably put money on Jack Johnson being on the team. He never says no to USA Hockey. Unless you forgot him, I'd put him in over Whitney and/or Orpik.

Callahan should be a solid bet, but the rangers could also send players like Stepan (playmaker), Dubinsky (grit and hustle) to the bottom-6 roles (you cant have a team of snipers), and with the way Ryan McD is progressing, you never know.

Yeah, you never know. But, I think it'd be very unlikely. We should have a good selection of defensemen to choose from.

E. Johnson
J. Johnson
Yandle
Suter
Martin
Fowler
Bogosian
Whitney
Goligoski
Orpik
Carlson
Shattenkirk
McDonagh
Byfuglien
Gleason
Komisarek (Yes, Komisarek)
McBain
Gardiner
Leddy
(Prospects like Merrill, Faulk etc...)

Tim Gleason was their best defender and I don't see anyone mentioning him in this thread. Whitney and Martin are both superior defenders at the moment, so I'm sorry but you are wrong.

Unless, like I said, Erik Johnson finds some consistency to his game.
