07:36 AM ET 12.30 | The return of Jimmy Howard will play well in Motown -- but it also counts as an international incident, so to speak. The official announcement won't come until the Winter Classic, but it appears [Howard] is headed for Sochi. A person with knowledge of the selection process told the Free Press on Sunday that it looked good for Howard's inclusion among the three goaltenders who would be tasked with leading Team USA to a gold medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia. The person requested anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the team before the announcement. ... Howard would be the third stringer, behind Jonathan Quick of Los Angeles and Ryan Miller of Buffalo, the former Spartan. USA Hockey will unveil the final 25-player selections for the hockey team immediately following [the Winter Classic].

Purely symbolic, 3rd string goalies almost never see game time.

I'm getting excited for the Olympic roster to be released. I'm pretty bias when it comes to Okposo, but do you all think he'll make the team? He's played amazing so far this year.

Still, it's the wrong message to send. Might as well bring Komisarek.

Jimmy will be fine in goal...if they just replace him in the last two minutes. I hope this rest was just what he needed.
