I understand what you are saying, but that is a very stupid thing to say...

Hell, I think the entire US team played "more Canadian" then the actual Canadian team did....

It is the Don Cherry syndrome, only Canadians play with grit, heart, and intestinal fortitude.......hate to say it, but this is how the US will be playing from hence forth...

I dont have a problem with Canada being cocky...they won a hard fought game, and should have a chip on their shoulder...but there is a difference between ignorant and cocky....and those that continually demean what the US accomplished fall into the ignorant category..

Everyone who is not mentioned is under 30 and I don't think too many people had Kane penciled into their 2006 post-discussion, who knows who will burst onto the scene. There is a lot to look forward from this USA team including several blue chips (Bogosian, JVR, Okposo) and several guys who are just scratching the surface of their abilities (Ryan, EJ, JJ, not to mention 21 year-old Patrick Kane). There is a lot of first-line talent and #1 d-men in the above line-up.

But for now, lets just enjoy their efforts.
I've corrected the ages fro Connolly, Callahan, Orpik, Ballard & Rafalski

Wasn't real impressed with Stastny, they would have been better with Connolly between Parise and Langenbrunner.

Add Booth, JVR, Kreider, and McColgan for 2014 and drop Langenbrunner, Drury, Malone for age and Kessel for lacking courage anytime when the puck was near the boards. I'm from Boston and while I've supported Kessel in the past, he can't elevate his game when the play gets physical, which it always does when you play Canada.
I'd sub Connolly for Stastny, if Connolly remains healthy.


Drop Rafalski for certain and possibly Gleason (solid though) and add Bogosian and Yandle.
