Goon's USA Olympic team.

Kyle from the Illegal Curve asked me to submit my USA Olympic team. Again this is just for fun, and not to be taken very seriously. This is just who "I" think will be selected to be on team USA. Also, if you read the post you I will see that I be writing a weekly college hockey post for the IC. I must say that I am honored to have been asked by Kyle.
Illegal Curve is pleased to announce that Goon of Goon’s World will be writing a weekly college hockey post on Illegal Curve starting this fall. In the mean time, he has agreed to post his version of Team USA for the upcoming 2010 Olympics. Enjoy!

  1. nice post and thanks for sharing....

    Entertainment at one stop

  2. Yeah the USA team pretty much picks itself as there just isn't that deep of a talent pool like there is for Canada.

    I will say though that I would rather see Komisarek and Ballard on the squad than Suter and Gilbert.

    Does Statsny have dual citzenship in US and Canada?

  3. Goon of Goon's world can you explain this..
