Couts is out. He's the GM of the team, he brought these guys in. Why does he need to watch them after watching them for the past 3 years?

JVR is going to have to do A LOT more if he wants to crack the US roster in 2014.. Not a chance Komisarek makes it either.

I am willing to bet a large sum that JVR will make team USA next year.

He's in the building because of the game the Leafs just had against the Habs,

he couldn't believe it so he wants to see it in person
it's a "pics or bs" type of thing

Really?

Parise - Kesler - Kessel
Ryan - Pavelski - Kane
Oshie - Stepan - Pominville
Brown - Backes - Callahan


Who do you really see JVR knocking out of that line-up?? And there's a slew of others I've left out.

TORONTO -- Oh, to have a penny for his thoughts.

Brian Burke has managed to keep a remarkably low profile since addressing the media a couple days after being ousted as president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs last month. It's not for a lack of interview requests, to be sure, especially with the roster he assembled having some early success while playing the style of hockey he loves.

But Burke has chosen to remain in the background and there's no reason to expect that to change any time soon.

However, he did quietly get back to work over the weekend by attending a couple American Hockey League games and is expected to be in attendance at the Air Canada Centre on Monday night when the Maple Leafs host the Philadelphia Flyers.

The recent scouting work is all said to fall under the duties Burke performs for USA Hockey, with whom he has enjoyed a longstanding relationship.

One issue that still needs to be worked out is what exactly Burke's advisory role with the Leafs organization will entail. He headed out of town shortly after being replaced by good friend Dave Nonis on Jan. 9 and has only recently returned. As a result, his job description is still to be determined, according to organizational sources.

Thoughts? Or are there no thoughts?
thoughts? Its better that he is in the crowd as a spectator than in the GMs box, with his disheveled hair, untied tie and his sleeves rolled up....that is a sight that I definitely
do not miss....

Lets give him a standing ovation because this juggernaut of a team has Burke written all over it.....hahhaahahaha

Real thoughts however...Do Not Care.

Oshie or stepan possibly.

He doesn't have a huge chance, but that's a year from now, he's having a solid season and a hot start could put him up there.

USA team is actually pretty stacked, im shocked.

Anyone on that 3rd line. Or more likely, Oshie could Center that third line with Pominville and JVR on his wings. Stepan has not done nearly enough to be considered a team USA olympian IMO.

It's possible but that was just off the top of my head. I'm pretty sure there's a few other guys that could replace Oshie / Stepan

USA has an amazing young defense too. Wow.

Before this gets brought up, Couturier obviously played for Canada at the WJC, and has shown no interest in representing the US. However, if I am not mistaken he is still eligible to play for the US at the senior level.

Hnat Domenichelli playd for Canada both at the WJC and in the Spengler Cup. However, after getting Swiss citizenship, and having not played for Canada in an IIHF Senior event, he asked Bob Nicholson for a blessing to represent the Swiss and does so now

The realists are still here and enjoying the game but unlike the optimists we don't need to continually invent excuses to justify our position .

You mean the Realists that were saying we wouldn't be a competitive team until Burke was removed?

Hows that working out for us again?
