Lets look at the 2012 squad and who might compete at each position...

Center: Stastny, Kane, Pavelski, Kelser will all be in their prime. Stepan would have to beat one of them, unless Pat Kane was deployed on the wing.

Wings: USA strength. Ryan, Brown, Kessel, Parise, Backes are the locks. 5 guys. Cally makes 6. Malone, Langenbrunner can be upgraded on. If Jaime is even playing then. Drury is obviously retired. There is a spot for Kreider here if he becomes a 30 goal guy. Maybe. The U.S. has a lot of good young wingers.

Defense: Suter, EJ, JJ are locks. Rafalski is retired, Gleason and Orpik might fight for a 7th spot, but I think that McD will, barring taking several steps back will absolutely be on the roster. Probably top 4.

And this isn't even including new guys that have broken the scene more recently like Cam Fowler.
Unless someone absolutely explodes into a premiere defenseman in the near future, McDonagh is team USA's #2 defenseman. He's better then EJ, and about twice as good as JJ.

Callahan is a lock. McDonagh has a very good chance amongst a deep group of d-men. I think Stepan has a very good chance as well, as the U.S. doesn't have a lot of depth at center (at least skilled centers).

Not a single Ranger player will make the 2014 squad. Because the NHL will not be participating in the 2014 games.

Erixon can't play for the US under IIHF rules as he's already played for Sweden.

Same rule that prohibits Bobby Holik and Petr Nedved from playing with the Czech Republic team.

Only McDonagh is a lock. IMO Callahan will slow down due to future injuries caused by his playing style.

Stu Bickel, 2011-12 Brandon Dubinsky and Brian Boyle should be the top line for the US.
Canada will settle for Staal and Girardi on defence I guess

A common misconception; not true.

Quote:
Change of national eligibility (The ‘four-year’ case)
A player, who has previously participated in IIHF competition, can switch national eligibility (but only once in a player's life) if:
1)He is a citizen of the new country of his choice
2)He has participated for at least four consecutive years in the national competitions of his new country, during which period he has neither transferred to another country nor played ice hockey within any other country and has not played for his previous country in an IIHF competition during this four year period.
3)He has an international transfer card (ITC) that shows the transfer to the national competition of his new country and which was approved and dated at least four years before the start of the IIHF competition in which he wishes to participate.

Not Rangers of course, but anyone have any ideas on who the 2014 Team USA goalies will likely be?

Ah, I see.

The Nedved scenario I assume was different being that he never decided to go any of those routes and just stuck with Canadian Citizenship. Never saw him play for the Czechs, and I don't remember seeing Holik on any of their teams either. At least in Olympic play.

Didn't start following WC play until about 04.

To be honest? I wouldn't mind that. Would love watching some of the top US-College guys go to work against the best in the world.

Perhaps Nieves, Fogarty, and Skjei would make that team!

I doubt that Erixon would prefer to play for USA instead of Sweden. He is swedish and raised here, he was born in N.Y and will be playing in NHL by then, sure. But his parents are swedish etc, he grew up here and I think he consider himself as a swede. Easier for him to get a chance in sweden then it would be on USA's team.
