The only way someone would agree with the initial assertion is if the person knew nothing of hockey, or they had not really looked at the topic at all.
His post seemed like it was being sarcastic.

Guys the 2002 draft sucked for the US. I think only Ryan Whitney made the Olympic team. The other guys I remember are Jim Slater and Chris Higgins. The 2003 draft class was the one that had nearly a third of both the US and Canadian teams that didn't lose a game at the Olympics except to each other and both destroyed Russia and Finland. The 2003 draft class dominated te Olympics almost single handily making up nearly 1/3rd of the two best teams.

That's correct. People seem to forget how dominant Canada & the US were in the 2010 Olympics.
