Snubbed by Team USA?

07:19 AM ET 07.23 | In a way, it feels as if the Olympics are suddenly around the corner as countries announced their invite lists, which included Minnestoa's Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Jason Pominville did not get the invite, surprisingly. He is Canadian born but has dual citizenship and has competed for the U.S. in the world championships. I question this omission. ... By the way, I corresponded with Pominville today and he said he is completely symptom-free from his late-season concussion. There have been no extension talks yet. The former Buffalo Sabres captain is entering the final year of his contract. As you can see, some of the forwards that got invited over Pominville are arguably, well, absurd. But, the USA brass made it clear they would be looking to put players on the team that can play certain roles.

Pominville wouldn't sniff Team Canada's C team. And given the talent that's come outta 'Murica the past few years, he probably shouldn't be a consideration there either.

Ah yes, but isn't our favourite Dark Lord involveed with Team 'Murica?

Agreed. Plus a quality start to the season could probably go a long way to having his name dropped into the conversation.
