Who's your Kurt Russell? When they ask me to play in World Cup I do it. Johannson talked about how much he enjoyed the calls and how much it meant for those players to represent their country at this point in their careers, a point where for the majority of the players, the National Hockey League had either been a thing of the past or had passed them by. "I want to come in and have an impact", he told NHL.com. And I don't think there's a clear favorite. "But even after that I really like our team. As an organization, we couldn't be happier that they picked him for the Olympic team".

Greenway's been fielding interview after interview since being added to Team USA's roster around Christmas time, and not just because of his race. This is unacceptable. We play Slovakia tomorrow and we better damn well win that game, or we're in deep trouble.

Slovenia claimed a first ever win over the United States in worldwide ice hockey with a 3-2 overtime victory at the Winter Olympics. The challengers Switzerland, Germany, Slovakia and Norway are perhaps lacking worldwide big names, but have gathered their teams from mostly domestic league players who know each other well. We're all getting used to new systems and all that. "The Olympics are in my blood and everybody knows how much I love my country", Ovechkin said in a statement last September. The puck moved.

"If you drag this one out and think about it for the next 36 hours, we're not going to be ready to play", Granato said.

Jordan Greenway, a Boston University star who became the first African-American player on a US Olympic hockey team, scored in a losing cause. While the Finnish team seems a bit boring from the edges, they've proved to be always competitive in global level and have great depth which might come in handy with extremely tight schedule. Yale is the next closest school with three players on Team USA - Mark Arcobello, Brock Little and O'Neill.

There are a total of three countries on this planet that should ever be in a competitive hockey game against the USA. Chris Chelios spent two years at Wisconsin before joining the 1984 Olympic team and is on the staff as an assistant coach. His details on what he's seen, what he's put in training, to get our penalty kills ready ... for the player he was, that's the kind of approach he has. But it's an honor and I'm very excited about it.

Johannson was much more than just the man who put together American teams for worldwide competition, although he was extremely successful in doing that.
