07:32 AM ET 08.27 | Considering the leadership presence Zach Parise and Ryan Suter are likely to provide Team USA, the Wild make for an interesting bunch as Sochi beckons. Also, in Tuesday's paper, I talked to GM David Poile about the decision by the United States of not inviting the Wild's Jason Pominville to camp. Pominville, who typically hits the 20- or even 30-goal mark, was born in Canada but has dual citizenship. Poile said [Monday] that Pominville "probably should have" been invited to camp. Poile said Pominville's name came up Sunday during a five-hour meeting with management and he has been "put back on the board," meaning he will be scouted all season. "If he plays well enough, he's back in the mix," Poile said.

And if Parise blows a tire again this year, will Pominville take Parise's spot?

There's an ointment for that. And Team Canada warned them to stay away from the cowgirls.

I had American friends here this weekend. One of the first questions they asked? "Where are all the fat people?!"

So you took them to the mayor's office?
