The Sens broadcast is roasting the US Olympic roster during the 2nd intermision. What they're saying is true... the torch should be getting passed to the current generation of young stars instead of depending on household names who may not be of their former calibre...

Mara, Corvo (+23) and Langenbrunner were all mentioned... but they're baffled at the fact that Miller was left off the team, and went into great detail on his season so far.

Congrats to Drury.

It really is a shame that they didn't include Connolly or Miller.. but I look at it this way.. this only makes the US team that much weaker.. giving Canada a better chance..

Btw.. I just hope that Miller and Connolly both play their hearts out for the Sabres and show the committee and the world what they are missing.

Very good point!
This is a blessing in disguise for us.

Was Kessel even moderatley considered???

If they're going to continue with that approach, I'd rather see a team made up entirely of college players.
That'd take a miracle... oh. Wait.
