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 THINK timmy connolly should of been on their! so's Okposo and Guerin
I think Canadas roster is better but only time will tell.
because your a CANUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!:laugh:
Soild Usa team
Doesn't matter if I am. Your an American. *he counters*:beer
what's with the he counters?
Usa is going to have bad defense!
Miller concerns me for the Olympics. The Russians are just going to be tearing him apart! the way he's playing right now
Parise the secret weapon for the usa.
Parise's not a secret.
yes he is.
Oh yes, the best American player in the NHL is a secret weapon. Good one.
yes indeed.....
I'd hardly call him a secret. He's the best goal scorer on our team. Our secret weapon is probably Ryan Callahan. He's a physical player who can also score. He plays both end well, and not a lot of people know him[/QU

He's a secret weapon because he can deke and dangle the crap out of goaltenders on a breakaway. That's what i mean't for him being a secret weapon. Callahan i saw was hard hitting in the opener. But no points, the secondary scorers like Backes,Malone,and Bobby Ryan. Parise wasn't a secret weapon in that game though. If push comes to shove he's going to have to be great.

This isn't how a secret weapon works. A secret weapon would be either an unknown or something that the opponents aren't thinking is important but can hurt you.

Parise isn't unknown. And the opponents know how important Parise is to the United States offense.

Hey it wasn't me that that named him the "secret weapon" I'm just supporting. Alright.?
I'm so confused:frown:
ok listen i got it from

Great win by the U.S. tonight. What a fun game to watch. My favorite part was the back-to-back-to-back breakaways... very exciting.
Yeah Usa should of had a goal out of that.
No no, I think Bobby Ryan was the last one with the clearest chance so if I didn't remember that correctly, I would imagine you were right on the rest of them. Maybe I just assumed Parise was the first one because I remember it being a difficult backhand shot made easy and then an intelligent player putting on the breaks to poke at their rebound instead of gliding away to the side admiring his shot.

nope it was brown. Parise he's left handed so he would of went to his fore hand.
Who does USA play next?
Hope Slovakia can take Russia down.
You Americans and you're false modesty makes me laugh, America has never been modest about anything. Not really worried about Team USA no more then I was Russia, if Canada gets to Miller its over.
**** u badat get a beter intelligent name you canadein ****
What tournament are you watching?????
made that post earlier before that game.
oh ok i mean't that i hope sloivaks take down canada
Man that old movie back to the future. Mcfly! hahah
