Surprised to see Abdelkader make the initial list. I assumed he would be part of the add ons later.

I gotta say, aside from Kane and maybe Kesler and Parise, we don't have that elite star power roster that we had in the 90s and early 00s. I was watching the 96 WCOH after Hockey Central today and man was that a roster with names on it. Modano, Hull, Leetch, Chelios, Amonte, , LaFontaine, Richter, Weight, Tkatchuk, Leclaire. Man I miss those days. Too bad the majority of that group embarrassed themselves in Nagano.

edit - That team also had the best sweaters of all time too.

Yea I was sooooooooo disappointed in 98. At least they made up for it in Salt Lake.

Yandle will probably be a 3rd...well, at least at the time the final rosters are announced.

I doubt it, there are at least 3 more D that will be added before Yandle. Wouldn't be shocked to see Gostisbehere, Faulk, Shattenkirk before Yandle.

I would think Gostisbehere will most likely end up on the NA team.

Jersey sucks too.

edit - I should say the jersey isn't thaaaaat bad but I dislike the crest.

No Kessel? Has his play dropped off that much this season?

They still need to add 4 more forwards to roster
I'm sure he will get a hard look.

In 4 years USA will start to look elite, about comparable to Canada (almost) i would guess.

Forwards
Johnny Gaudreau- 22
Nick Bjugstad- 23
Dylan Larkin- 19
Jack Eichel- 19
Austin Matthews- 18
Matthew Tkaichuk- 18
Alex Galchenov- 22

Defense
Seth Jones- 21
Noah Hanifin- 19
Shayne Gostisbehere- 22
Justin Faulk- 23
Cam Fowler- 23
Torey Krug- 24

With those names, the future certainly looks bright for USA Hockey. You can probably throw in Jacob Trouba on D as well as John Gibson in goal.

I thought 23 and under isn't even eligible for the national teams?

I would have given Palmieri a look. Also, USA's jerseys are the weakest out of them all.

I'm sure he will, as will Tyler Johnson, Kyle Okposo, and JVR. Heck, maybe even Kreider if they think they need more speed, which they probably do.
