Callahan is a lock. McDonagh will in my opinion. Stepan won't not due to lack of skill, but he's going to be the odd man out at Center behind Stastny, Kesler, Backes and Pavelski. I think Kreider has a better shot than Stepan.

It almost never happens, but it is possible to do.

Erixon will not have played the required 4 years by 2014 anyway.

Didn't start following WC play until about 04.
Nedved could not play for Czech Republic until now because he played for Canada in the 94 Olympics and was playing in the NHL until 2007, he has spent the last 5 seasons in the Czech league and must have been there long enough for citizenship thus making him eligible and he was able to play in this year's WC's.

Holik has only ever played for Czech Republic/Czechoslovakia but the last time he did so was 1996, not sure why he didn't after that, he certainly was eligible.

LOL at all the JT Millers. USA will be stacked. Stepan and Kreider aren't even locks.

Holik became an American citizen in 1996.

Did he ditch his Czech citizenship for American or did he get dual citizenship? With the latter he would still be able to play for Czech Republic.

Honestly, any answer of mine would be a guess. I am pretty sure he embraced being an American, if that helps.

Perhaps Nieves, Fogarty, and Skjei would make that team!
1980 all over again?

There was considerable talk of Holik playing for the U.S. in the last World Cup.

If Dubinsky gets back to form, he's a lock to make it, most likely as a 4th line winger.

I'll be surprised if both Kreider and Stepan make it. USA has a lot of depth at forward.

USA has a lot of depth everywhere

Especially goalie. Look at the last two CS winners. Though I'm guessing Thomas is out in 2014 but it doesn't matter because Quick/Miller is still a pretty fantastic tandem.
