Lupul for Canada(if healthy)
Grabo for Belarus
Gunnar for Sweden
Kulemin for Russia(maybe)
Crabb for USA
Can Crabb not go down to the Marlies for the playoffs?

Nail on the hammer right here, aside from Gardiner, no way he gets consideration as a rookie.

No, he wasn't on their Clear Day Roster.

They have this loser, tank mentality right now. Need to recover from this malady! Hopefully, they can recover from this problem by this time next year. Maybe, maybe not.

Yes, I'm a bitter Leafs fan at the moment!
You do know that representing your own country can actually help cure that losing mentality?

Have you seen the teams that USA sends to the WC normally? None of the good players play. Last year Mike Brown and Komisarek made the team as well as a bunch of AHLers, borderline NHLers, guys from Euro leagues and college kids. In 2010 Christian Hanson, Tim Kennedy and Ryan Carter made the team. I believe they've finished in the relegation rounds the last few years, so Gardiner should be a lock on defense should the Marlies get knocked out.

Anyways, the guys I think will be there:

Canada: Phaneuf, Lupul, maybe Macarthur and Bozak.
USA: Brown, Crabb, Steckel, and Komisarek should all make it if they have the usual turn out of guys. If they want to go Kessel, Connolly, Liles.
Sweden: Gustavsson, Gunnarsson
Belarus: Grabovski
Russia: Kulemin

If the Marlies go down expect Holzer and Mueller to suit up for Germany, Mikus to attempt and make the Slovak squad and Gardiner to play for USA.

Crabb and Brown could be on USA 4th line.
