Team USA opens play going up against Team Europe on September 17th.
There are a lot of expectations surrounding Team USA, but the field is tough and they cannot over look Team Europe here in this spot
Team USA will look to lean heavily on their goaltending here in this tournament.
The USA will enter play with perhaps the best trio in goal, as they feature Jonathan Quick, Cory Schneider and Ben Bishop. The trio will all see time and will certainly have an impact on how far this team goes.
Offensively, T.J. Oshie and Patrick Kane will look to lead the way. TJ Oshie headlines the pack as has had plenty of international experience.
Team USA is rather thin defensively in terms of overpowering talent, but they do have a lot of defenders than cause havoc in the offense end.
John Carlson and Dustin Byfuglien are two players to watch for here, as they both have the ability to not just block the net, but also create chances up front.
Team Europe already has made an interesting choice in net.
They will go with Jaroslav Halak as their number 1, despite him suffering an injury back on March 8th. Halak has plenty of talent, but his health will be a key to watch for, especially early on.
Team Europe does enter play with little confidence. They were taken down by Team North America in back to back pre tournament games, as they looked sloppy and lacked a spark in both contests.
They’ll lean on Marian Hossa and Anze Kopitar. The duo will have to get production as this team will find success against Team USA by peppering the net and scoring on 2nd and 3rd chances.
