Gleason not a chance.

Sekera maybe.
I'd say Sekera is more than 'maybe'. He's pretty close to a lock.

Unless Jordan goes completely insane in the first half he has zero chance of making this team. There are at least 3 guys that do his job better than him (Toewes, Bergeron, Richards) and its on the large ice. If Eric has a slow start even he might be on the bubble (though unlikely). Either some here way overrate Jordan or way underestimate how loaded Canada is down the middle.

I hope Cam takes this the way he should and has a chip on his shoulder going into next season. This is one of those cases where I wish he had some of that "crazy arrogant goalie" in him, like Roy.

I'm actually shocked that Ward wasn't invited. Canada doesn't have great goalie depth, and Ward has put in his time with the team at the WC's.

Are we sure it's not injury related?

D = Droit (right)

Yup. When something is "gauche," as in tactless or crude, you're saying it's left-handed. Not surprisingly, adroit and right-handedness are related. Hooray for righties!

Keep forgetting about this guy, but he might as well be from a Tuvalu or something when it comes to making the U.S. Olympic team, and yes I'm well aware Komisarek was going to the 2010 Olympics before injuring his shoulder. IIRC, that's actually how Gleason made the team.

Dan DeKeyser (less than 20 games of professional experience) and Jacob Trouba (yet to make his professional debut) got invited to the camp. They're doing everything they can to keep Gleason away from the roster

Peter Laviolette, Todd Richards, and Tony Granato will be Dan Bylsma's assistants for Team USA.

He will be there as a backup at the very least.

@chrismpeters: Poile on Justin Faulk: The fact that he did well in World Championships, his star is rising. Justin has "excellent chance" to be on team.

I just realized Tim Thomas didn't get an invite.

Which adds another laugh in his strange and hilarious tale.

Why would he? He's been out of the sport for almost 2 years.

And if there's one thing our Olympic team has going for it, it's goaltending.

Didn't you know Tim Thomas is a true American patriot, up there with the likes of Paul Revere and George Washington? He deserves an invite based on that alone.

Because, IIRC, he believed that he could return after taking his year-long hiatus and be a starter for the Olympic team.
