Team USA went on an improbable run during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Although they fell just short of the ultimate goal, they skated away with a silver medal.
As good as that team was, there are several players who were not selected to represent their country in the Games.
Since that time, more American players have significantly raised their profiles, and there are several players who could crack the US roster during the next Winter Games, which will take place in Sochi, Russia.
That is of course subject to whether or not the NHL agrees to send its players to the Games in 2014.
For the purposes of this slide show, we will assume that league allows them to play in Sochi.
