Ron Wilson seems to think that Paul Martin (and maybe Komisarek) won't be able to play in the Olympics this year.

http://www.ctvolympics.ca/hockey/news/newsid=28547.html

Quote:
"He has to play a number of games. Same as Mike Komisarek," Wilson said to the Star-Ledger. "If he only plays one or two games, it wouldn't be fair to Paul Martin and, probably more likely, to the New Jersey Devils as well. If he's not ready to play, this is a huge event. It's not an exhibition tour.

"If he is ready, that's even better for us. But let's wait until the doctors decide what's going on. I mean he's had his arm in a cast for three months, so I don't know how you can get yourself ready in two weeks. But if he can, that's great."

Well, the USA does have defensemen that weren't named to the team that are just as good as those that were named. Ballard, Yandle, Whitney, Wisniewski and Bogosian could all be solid replacements.

I'd mention Andy Greene, he wasn't on the preliminary list that USA Hockey submitted before the season for drug testing. Since he didn't take the drug test, he's not eligible. Sweden ran into this in the case of Niclas Bergfors, who they tried to add to their team late.

Martin officially withdraws.

http://devils.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=515844

Quote:
The following is a statement from Devils’ defenseman Paul Martin in regard to his participation in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games:

“After careful consideration, I have decided to withdraw my name from participation with Team USA at the upcoming Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. While the decision was an extremely difficult one, I feel it is in my long-term best interest to not rush any return to the ice.

“Team USA was informed of my decision earlier today. I look forward to re-joining my New Jersey Devil teammates in the near future, and would also like to wish my fellow Devils’ Olympians and the rest of Team USA good luck in their pursuit of the gold medal.”

Too bad on Martin, although I'd rather he focus on getting back completely healthy for the post-Olympic stretch anyway.

I'd go with Ballard as his replacement.

Komisarek is undergoing season ending shoulder surgery, so he will miss the Olympics.

ON the bright side he won't be playing for the LEafs either.
