Jimmy Howard Named To US Olympic Team

Jimmy Howard is going to Sochi. Maybe even to play!

The disappointment of the shootout loss to the Maple Leafs in the Winter Classic lives on, it wasn't all bad for Jimmy Howard as he was named to the USA Olympic team headed to Sochi in just over a month. He will join Ryan Miller and Jonathan Quick as the goaltenders.

Here's the rest of the US team:

Dustin Brown David Backes Ryan Callahan
Max Pacioretty Ryan Kesler Patrick Kane
Zach Parise Joe Pavelski Phil Kessel
James van Riemsdyk Paul Stastny T.J. Oshie
Derek Stepan Blake Wheeler
Cam Fowler John Carlson
Ryan McDonagh Justin Faulk
Brooks Orpik Paul Martin
Ryan Suter Kevin Shattenkirk

Ryan Miller
Jonathan Quick
Jimmy Howard

Thoughts, Americans? As a Canadian, that defense is very questionable. And no Bobby Ryan could really hurt a team that's probably going to give up a ton of goals with that defense. They'll be able to score, and they'll be fast, but in a short tournament where a goalie can get hot, they could be out very quickly if they can't generate offense.
