If you really want to, try and get a feed from TSN for it. They always have it.






I love the goalies chosen here.



DiPietro-Very good goalie but is a known head-case.

Esche-Has the talent and the Flyers run will surely improve his confidence

Conklin-He's the best thing in Edmonton not named Brewer or Smith.


For Defense

Chris Chelios-Great sure-fire HOF player, this should be his last international run of his career.

Derian Hatcher-Very good player, but wil his knee injury come back to haunt him?

Ken Klee-Solid defensemen, nothing spectacular, provides offense here and there.

Brian Leetch-Sure-fire HOF, he is simply the best American defensemen at this time.

Jordan Leopold-Interesting choice, injecting some younger defense here.

Aaron Miller-Solid defensemen, hard hitter, like him as defense.

Brian Rafalski-Breakout season this year should carry over.

Matthieu Schneider-See Rafalski


For Offense


Tony Amonte-Solid scoring forward with a good part of life left in hockey.

Jason Blake-Good defensive forward, sparkplug for the team IMO.

Craig Conroy-Breakout season in Calgary and its run should carry over

Chris Drury-This rising star is making many heads turn. Should be a second-line center,

Bill Guerin-Solid scoring forward with a lot in the tank.

Jeff Halpern-Good, gritty, defensive forward.

Brett Hull-Last time in international hockey for this HOF? going to lead this team very well.

Steve Konowalchuk-Great leader, gritty, defensive forward who can score.

Jamie Langenbrunner-Had an offyear this year but is a solid forward.

Mike Modano-Is something wrong with him? He had an absolutely horrid year and didn't look the same at all.

Jeremy Roenick-Roenick, Tkachuk, Roecnick, Tkachuk. Nuff said.

Brian Rolston-Good gritty forward, should score a bit too.

Bryan Smolinski-Good, solid forward, who is gritty.

Keith Tkachuk-Tkachuk, Roenick, Tkachuk, Roenick. Nuff said.

Doug Weight-Has had a bad year, can he center the Tkachuk Roenick line?




Thats my evaluation of the US World Cup Team.

I'm pretty sure the games are going to be on ESPN, they're covering it more than usual on ESPN.com.


This is going to be an awesome tourney, I can't wait to go to the US-Canada game and it's just a pre-tournament tune-up.
