I said I will take a crack at what candidates can made team USA:
I just read that the state of Minny at the present produces the most NHL american born players. The state of Mass. in the early nineties was number one. NY and Mich. state are usually in the top three. Don't asked me for the article I am not cut, paste, copy expert.
Being a Canadian myself I looked at USA and they also have many handfuls of possible players to represent the USA next Olympics.
My first error that i made for the USA/Canada roster is Buff is an american born should od checked his profile more carefully.
The list for USA like Canada can go pretty deep for selections:
callahan, backes, ryan, kessel, kesler, dubinsky, e. cole, JVR, couturier, parise, kane, gionta, R. malone, Pacereity (sp) outside looking in are legwand, colin wilson, galchenlnyuk, troula, schmautz, drew stafford,
leddy, wienniewski, suter, p. martin, a. greene, r. mcdonaugh, buff, J. mcbain,
quick,miller and T.T
If the American mngt. for selection should take a seriuos look at P. Housley to coach the american squad. He did a great job with the American Juniors for the gold medal.
I just found what info. i read about the USA producing state " quanthockey.com"
