Interesting picks. Considering the play and point production of some of the forwards. They must plan on getting ALL the offence from the defence.
Also of interest is that several players chosen did not even complete the camp due to injury and vacations.
Typical of USA hockey to pick"individual" players instead of assembling a "TEAM"!

What happenend to Colin Jacobs and Seth Ambroz?
I guess they didnt want to make the team too strong.
