USA Hockey: Team USA releases their Olympic roster

Here’s the Team USA Olympic Roster, there's a few head-scratchers on this roster. I am surprised that Bobby Ryan, Jason Pominville and Keith Yandle were left off of the team. The question is, who would/should have been left off of the team to make room for these three guys? I am sure we all have our own suggestions. 
Goalies (3)
Ryan Miller/Buffalo Sabres – Michigan State
Jonathan Quick/Los Angeles Kings – UMass Amherst  
Jimmy Howard/Detroit Red Wings – Maine

Defensemen (8)

John Carlson/Washington Capitals – London Knights
Justin Faulk/Carolina Hurricanes – Minnesota Duluth
Cam Fowler/Anaheim Ducks – Windsor Spitfires

Ryan McDonagh/New York Rangers – Wisconsin
Kevin Shattenkirk/St. Louis Blues – Boston University

 Forwards (14)
