Quick note: We correctly predicted the five goalies selected to attend camp! You're welcome Stevie Y!


  1. Three Staals at camp, I consider that a surprise. Glad to see Lucic make the first step and hope he makes the team.

    Dan Hamhuis? Interesting pick. I guess the playing in Nashville does make you unknown. Has the Americans released their list? It would be fun to compare.

  2. They have released their list... It can be found here.

    Seems like a small, young team to me... I think they'll have trouble keeping up, but you never know, they do have a lot of skill...
