Karma corrected a mistake they made by allowing Komisarek to make the team to start with. Tim Gleason deserved to be there all along.
NOW I can officially cheer for Team USA again. Time to change the old aviator.
Yep. I feel bad for Komi though. Not his fault that his GM and Head Coach were on the Team USA selection committee. Unlike Johnson who earned his spot, I would put money on that being the only reason that Komi was on the team.
That's great news. Something to look forward to for him. And, not that I'd care either way, but with this miserable season it's not like Staal/Gleason/Pitkänen/Ruutu playing a few extra games is the end of the world.
im glad he made it, as a heart and soul guy he is an obvious choice. thank god its on smaller ice though, he is gonna have a tough time keeping up at this level. his skating just isnt there. this US team could surprise, or it could be an epic disaster. i think d overall is a pretty big weakness on this squad, theyll need some heroic jim craig like goaltending.
Just kidding, but Gleason and him have to be brothers or something... that's what I thought when I came across this picture:
Use this one then:
Ah, the rookie year team portrait.
Anyway, congrats to Gleason. Good to see him getting the spot that should have been his from the beginning. If I had money, I would get a jersey. Seeing as I don't, anyone know if there'll be jersey t shirts?
