It was announced a little bit ago. Great news for mcd and the cally choice isn't much of a surprise but I am pretty shocked to see Stepan there.

Lets hope all three stay healthy.

I'm a bit surprised by Cally but I will root hard for all 3.

Hopefully the experience helps them as Rangers as well.

I was more surprised Stepan got the nod, Cally could be back next game as they waived Pyatt.

Yeah that seems to be the plan.

Apparently, Callahan was amongst the 4-5 core leaders identified for the team by coaches months ago. I am surprised Stepan was selected. Congrats to each of them! What an experience it must be to represent your country in the olympics.

I figured Step might because they are weaker at center than on the wing.

Choosing Cally over Bobby Ryan was a mild surprise to me.

They said they were picking the players they felt they could win with not the best players.

Back in the old days when it was almost all college kids for the USA it was something magical.

Surprised by Stepan making it honestly, not Cally. Poile said today that he sees Cally in the top 6, don't agree with it though. Put him on a line with Backes/Brown and Oshie and let them cause havoc on the ice. Tough line to play against.

I just didnt want to see him play for the sake of how much he has been hurt. I know he wasnt 100% to start the season and then trying to get back in the groove and getting hurt again doesnt help

I don't think Stepan will see a lot of playing time.
