USA lines: Cally with Stastny and Pacioretty

Per SI’s Sarah Kwak, Team USA’s lines are the following:

James van Riemsdyk-Joe Pavelski-Phil Kessel
Zach Parise-David Backes-TJ Oshie
Dustin Brown-Ryan Kesler-Patrick Kane
Ryan Callahan-Paul Stastny-Max Pacioretty

That is a very deep two-way roster, but doesn’t have the offensive punch of the Canadians. No, seriously, Matt Duchene and Martin St. Louis are the 13th and 14th forwards for Canada. That’s absurd.

Derek Stepan is currently slated as the 13th forward, who will add offense if one of the top four centers get injured.

Defensive pairings:

Ryan McDonagh-John Carlson
Cam Fowler-Ryan Suter
Kevin Shattenkirk-Paul Martin

    This gives us an opportunity to see Stastny with Callie on the same line. If Callie re-signs, and we get Paul to sign with us, would be interesting to see if these two guys have any chemistry together!!!!!!!!!

    Stepan sure hasn’t been playing like an Olympian. Injury replacement is, unfortunately, precisely the role he should be filling.

    Still scratching my head over the Paul Martin selection. The USA forwards are formidable. They will be a handful for any teams’ defence in this tournament.

    • Jeff P says:

      USA forwards are formidable? How many US forwards would make the Canadian squad? Kessel and maybe Backes?

      • Chris F says:

        Uh, yea, they’re pretty formidable. You mentioned Backes and Kessel, plus Oshie, Parise, Kane, Callahan. They may not be a team of superstars -it’s a very blue collar team- but that says nothing of their compete level.

        • Chris F says:

          And McDonagh is gonna beast all over Team Canada.

          • Bloomer says:

            I was in Vancouver for the 2010 games. Canada beat the US in overtime for the gold in a game that could of gone either way. I am cheering for Canada but I know a repeat will be tough sledding.

  4. Bloomer says:

    With the exception of Crosby, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry are their any Canadians that could make the US team?

    Ryan Sutter should be on the top pairing with Mac. He’s a solid 2 way defender.

    • BenM says:

      I don’t think anyone would disagree. That is by far their best shutdown pairing, which is why they were split up. I think it’s more interesting that McD is slated to anchor the 1D line while Suter is anchoring the 2D line.
