I really don't get why Andy is never mentioned for Team USA, especially on the big ice.

 

Because the people who run Team USA are morons.  Greene should at least be in consideration.  Instead they will take Jack Johnson.

 

Team USA should take into consideration these 10 guys:  Suter, Byfuglien, Shattenkirk, Yandle, McDonagh, Martin, Carlson, Faulk, Greene, ... and the 10th guy I don't know, really, it gets kind of murky there.  Erik Johnson?  Tom Gilbert?  Jeff Petry?  Brooks Orpik?  Not a ton of options after those first 9, and I know Martin's hurt, but yeah.

It's because he's short. I can almost guarantee it. I think he's listed at 5'11".

Looking at Greene's numbers (and the way he's played this year) it's really beyond me how he can't be in consideration. John and ILWT broke the numbers down well.

I agree he should at least be in the discussion. The only guys IMO clearly ahead of him are suter, byfuglien and yandle. Then there are a bunch of guys probably ahead of him but not by much- mcdonagh, Martin, Carlson.

He's probably in the 7-12 range of best american defensemen

Edit: forgot shattenkirk. He's also ahead of Greene but the point still stands.

I have a feeling fowler may get a chance. Not saying he deserves it but may get it on reputation. Also looking up Erik Johnson it appears he's been better this season but holy crap how are the Avs 19-6 when they only have 5 guys with positive Corsi numbers... Haven't watched a game of theirs but their goaltending must be through the roof.

yeah it saw that from last week... I hope (and it sounds a bit like) Andy takes it as a slight and extra motivation.

Andy tonight : 28:26 TOI with 4 shots and a goal. yes he was -1 but what do you expect when he plays pretty much half the freaking game and against the other team's top line.

 

Also with fear of knocking us off topic ITT, I liked Volchenkov's play tonight but I wouldn't dare make an appreciation thread for him for fear of being crusified on this board. But for a 5th/6th defenseman and PK specialist he is very solid.

His goal was sweet.  That pass by Zajac for that backdoor play was insane.

If only he was getting paid like one, no one would care.

Greene's like Elias, in that he's incredibly, incredibly underrated.  Devils players tend to do that, it seems..if he played in a big market I be he'd be nominated.

 

Jack Johnson is embarrassingly awful...can't believe he'll be considered.

We need to get him locked up.  After next year, I'd give him a 4 year $24M extension.

I think Fowler should be included on the list. Even though he's canadian, he plays for the us national team

I had no idea he was producing so many points. I hadn't looked at stats in a while but to see her is top 20 in the league and has more points than Chara and the same as Weber is incredible. Good work Andy.
