Stefan Noesen is back in the lineup tonight and has 2 goals already. Hopefully puts any of the worries about his ankle to rest.

Matt Grzelcyk has looked really good so far tonight for BU. I think he's going to prove me wrong and make the team this year instead of next year like I thought. He's outplayed Mike Reilly and Brady Skjei by a good amount to start this year. Reilly's summer camp will buy him some more leeway but Skjei's in trouble.

I don't really see how Skjei makes the team at this point.

As unfortunate as it would be for USA to lose Gibson, as a Flames fan I would be excited for the opportunity it could potentially have for Gillies.

Neither do I. I'm assuming his skating ability will be the only reason he even gets an invite to the pre-tournament camp, an invite I'm not sure he even deserves right now. He's been shaky at best in the Minnesota games and I've comfortably preferred Reilly in those viewing as well, although Reilly has been up and down as well. If I had to choose my 7 d-men right now they would be: Jones, Trouba, Gostisbehere, Grzelcyk, McCabe, Sieloff, Murphy.

You would have to think Miller or Grimaldi, maybe Noesen?

I'd assume it's Grimaldi.

On pure skill it's Grimaldi but it's more about chemistry and depth.

Any chance Matt Deblouw makes the team as a 4th line center?

Possible. He's had a very good start. He's battling guys like Vail, Boyd, and Bardreau for that spot. I think 2 of those guys get invites to the camp.

I'm sure USAH has their roster picked. This weekend probably only matters to Lucia and Kerdiles.

If Gibson's injury is serious that's a huge loss. To me he's the most important player on the team.

Grzelcyk had a great game tonight. The thing that has always made me a fan of his is that he's not only a very good offensive d-man, but he's also good in his own end. I think he'll be with the team when all is said and done.

I'm interested to see McCabe play now as everyone seems to like his chances while I've never been a big fan of his game. The poor play of Reilly and Skjei certainly helps his cause though.

Some strong performances by the boys in the BU-BC game. Here's hoping the guys in Wisco-DU can follow suit.

How have Sparks and Stolarz been since camp?

I think it would do alot for Deblouw's confidence to get an invite and if he gets cut hopefully it motivates him like it did to JG.

Also does Gillies have a shot at the number 1 spot now that Gibson is hurt?

I wouldn't count Gibson out yet. There's still a considerable amount of time until the WJCs start.

agreed.

he has been hurt some as well, kid will be one of the most important players on this team hands down. versatile and capable of playing any style of game... this is his chance to show why the US screwed up massively by not picking him last year.

I am soooo excited to see Noesen and Trocheck on this WJC team...two players who work their ***** off, who have earned their spot on this team.

I think he misses a week or two tops...

but it will be a tough call for USA Hockey to have to select his name this week knowing he is going to miss some time.

I would actually put it in that order as well.

Noesen is criminally underrated on these boards, and he is on the same level of J.T Miller imo...

IMO, the top 6 forwards for this team are : Galchenyuk, Gaudreau, Miller, Grimaldi, Noesen and Trocheck...

not a shabby top 6 if you ask me...

Is there any talk of having Tyler Biggs ride shotgun on one of the top two lines? In Oshawa he always plays with Boone Jenner, and I think he really opens things up...not to mention it's sometimes good to have a big hard-nosed player on a skilled line.

Thanks

Much better options if you ask me.

Mersch is a man among boys...wish that kid would have made the US WJC team last year...

Kerdiles has looked very good in his debut. Kid has sick hands, solid wheels, and solid size...I really cant see him not making team USA if he only gets better from here.

McCabe impressed the heck out of me with his defensive game. Kid made some huge blocks, and one hell of a poke-check late in game. Kid has a spot on this team as well...

Joseph LaBate looks good, but goes invisible at times. I understand Wisconsin has trouble scoring and lacks depth, but with Kerdiles back, maybe LaBate starts producing more as he worked well with Mersch out there tonight.

Nick Shore has come a long way since I saw him with the USNDP. He is a true player.

two more impressive poke checks/sticks from McCabe in overtime. Kid is having one hell of a game defensively...

Kerdiles should be on track to make the team if he keeps playing like he did tonight.
