Booth was a lock on the first team, and he doesn't even make the second team.. he's probably back in late january, so he would easy be on this team. You forgot Ballard too.

ok go check Russia's "B players" for instance ... you know, Frolov, Kovalev, Yashin, Kozlov, Zubov, D. Markov, Khabibulin ... you know all those guys who actually belong on the A team? and I don't think these are even the top choices for that B team ...

he wasnt forgotten, there is no guarantee as to when or if he can return. i put him on the taxi squad just to be nice. he makes team 1 hands down if healthy.

and no I didnt forget Ballard, he has not been good enough this year and has been one of the biggest disapointments for USA Hockey

I have. How about you give me another countries B-Team that could win a game at the NHL level besides Canada (obviously) and the US? I'll wait....

Alright. You have to be kidding me now. Frolov is the only player you named that I would want anywhere near my NHL team (which is currently terrible).

The top players for Sweden, Finland, Russia, much better than the top guys for the US. But do not come here trying to say they have more depth than the US.

Very good NHL team, could probably be a Cup contender, but only Canada could ice a 'B' team that could compete in the Olympics.

I threw in some obvious names that you've seen in the NHL to make it easier for you, because if I start putting KHLers names, you won't have a clue what I'm talking about. and if you wanna call the aforementionned players "bums", alright, but then you're in trouble because team USA B doesn't even have players of the calibre.
