In The Spotlight


G Ryan Miller​

Arguably the best goaltender in the NHL this season has performed admirably for the Buffalo Sabres. Expected to be the starting goaltender, he brings good size, technical skills and athleticism to the American net.


D Erik Johnson​

Johnson is the best all-around defenseman that America has produced in years. At only 21, he's got a wealth of international competition, representing America in both the World Juniors and the World Championships in 2007. He will play in all situations and against the top lines of other teams.


LW Zach Parise​

Parise has developed himself into a player that is dominant in all areas of the ice. Because of this, he will play on the top line with the American team and get plenty of ice time in key situations.

I find it suspect and Hilarious that Komisarek is in over Keith Ballard. Its obvious Burke and Wilson are bringing their Leaf fail to the USA olympic squad.

A slow guy who has not looked good in the larger Olympic rink against teams that were obviously picked based on speed first.

It's being played on NHL-sized ice. Not arguing that there aren't better choices though, because there definitely are. If they wanted a shutdown guy, then Matt Greene would have fit the bill.

But obviously they're biased.

I may be wrong but im pretty surre they are playing on nhl size ice so komi is the right choice :)
Even on NHL sized Ice, Ballard > Komisarek any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Ever since leaving his partner Markov, Komi has been exposed and terrible.

Hell, I'd have taken Andy Greene over Komisarek. At least the guy can skate...
