Team USA Olympic Roster

USA Olympic TeamI expect there to be much debate about this roster, but if I were the GM of Team USA and selecting the team today, here’s who I would choose, and what I would open the tournament with.

Forwards

Bobby Ryan – David Backes – Pat Kane

Zach Parise – Dustin Brown – Phil Kessel

Jason Pominville – Ryan Kesler – Joe Pavelski

James Van RiemsdykDerek StepanRyan Callahan

Spare Forward – Kyle Okposo

Defenseman

Ryan Suter – Keith Yandle

James Wisniewski – Ryan McDonagh

Dustin Byfuglien – Jack Johnson

Spare Defenseman – Paul Martin and Kevin Shattenkirk

Goaltenders

Jonathan Quick

Craig Anderson

Ryan Miller

I think that with this roster Team USA will be competitive with any team in the tournament. There is depth at every position.  Let Quick handle the goaltending duties, name Suter the captain, and let Kane, Kessel and Parise lead the way up front.
