Hall, Staal, Benn and Duchene should be the LWs

I honestly can't see why Team Canada would not have Staal on their team. The National Team loves him.

It isn't necessarily about skill (though the idea that James Neal, whose main offensive production is a one timer on the PP, or Patrick Sharp, or Milan Lucic or Duchene or Benn are better players than Staal doesn't jive), but about being a good soldier. Look at Jack MotherF***ing Johnson. By all accounts, he should be nowhere near the U.S. Olympic team- yet he's probably going to make it, because he always shows up when the National Team comes calling. Same with Staal and Team Canada.

This board has really soured on Staal because of words like "effort" or "leadership". You'd never know he's still leading our team in points by far.

They might also give Skinner a look, because he's been red hot this month. Don't really see that one though.

Dear Team USA. Please win gold and kick the s*** out of Team Canada to make up for 2010.

That is all

At this point I hope Staal and Faulk are left off their respective teams. Let them rest and stew about their omissions and see if it lights a fire under their *****. If that doesn't remove EStaal's head from his ass I'm not sure anything is going to.

I'm watching the Florida Panthers broadcast right now and they chose their team USA rosters...Matt Niskanen was on there ahead of Fowler, Faulk, J Johnson.

That was the whole tweet and the only thing he tweeted. I figured since the USA roster is being announced tomorrow that's what it'd be about.

Maybe he's bummed about Gleason or someone getting traded...

Then again it could be something like he and his girlfriend got in a fight. I was just thinking about Sochi.

If they chose Niskanen or Orpik (cuz Bylsma gonna Bylsma) over Faulk and Fowler I'm going to lose it... and then the US is going to lose it... in the quarters.

U.S. players were told they'd be texted during Winter Classic, so they'll know if they're on the Olympic team before announcment is made.

Guess Faulk was talking about something else.

Yeah, I'd have to think it'd be something personal or knowing Gleason was being dealt.

And FWIW, Kevin Allen had Faulk on his final USA roster prediction.
