Man down

Well this is just awesome... NOT!

It looks like the forward who everyone was surprised to see make the team won't be in Vancouver after all. With Bergeron breaking his thumb, we're going to need a replacement. The obvious choices in my mind are Jordan Staal and Jeff Carter, though Dreger is tweeting that it's too early to pencil anyone in, naming Carter by name...

So let the debate begin! Who's your pick?

Damned Yankees

Before heading to bed, I thought a good move would be to post the last of the teams that will be competing in Vancouver that "matter".

The USA has announced their team, and it looks a little something like this...

Ryan Miller (Buffalo Sabres), Jonathan Quick (Los Angeles Kings), Tim Thomas (Boston Bruins)

Erik Johnson (St Louis Blues), Jack Johnson (Los Angeles Kings), Mike Komisarek (Toronto Maple Leafs), Paul Martin (New Jersey Devils), Brooks Orpik (Pittsburgh Penguins), Brian Rafalski (Detroit Red Wings), Ryan Suter (Nashville Predators)

David Backes (St. Louis Blues), Dustin Brown (Los Angeles Kings), Ryan Callahan (New York Rangers), 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), Zack Parise (New Jersey Devils), Joe Pavelski (San Jose Sharks), Bobby Ryan (Anaheim Ducks), Paul Stastny (Colorado Avalanche)
