The Puck Stops Here

My Team USA Selections

Yesterday I posted my my picks for the Canadian Olympic hockey team.  Today, I will give my picks for the American team.  This team will be announced during the winter classic game in Boston on January 1st.

This is not my prediction for who will be selected to the team.  It is the selections I would make if I was given the chance to pick the team.  I expect that at least a handful of these players will not be selected to the actual team.

Goaltenders
Craig Anderson Colorado Avalanche
Ryan Miller Buffalo Sabres
Tim Thomas Boston Bruins

Defencemen
Alex Goligoski Pittsburgh Penguins
Andy Greene New Jersey Devils
Erik Johnson St Louis Blues
Brooks Orpik Pittsburgh Penguins
Brian Rafalski Detroit Red Wings
Ryan Suter Nashville Predators

Forwards

Tim Connolly Buffalo Sabres
Chris Drury New York Rangers

Patrick Kane Chicago Blackhawks
Ryan Kesler Vancouver Canucks
Phil Kessel Toronto Maple Leafs
Jamie Langenbrunner New Jersey Devils
Ryan Malone Tampa Bay Lightning
