Read: There Is A Good Chance Brady Skjei Plays For Team USA

At the United States of Hockey, Chris Peters starts to preview Team USA for the upcoming World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia.

Under the header of players “likely” to make the team is Rangers first round pick Brady Skjei.

Peters thinks that Skjei’s skating and two-way game make him a likely inclusion for Team USA.

He writes that if the World Juniors started tomorrow Skjei would be on his second pair with fellow first round pick Jacob Trouba.

Skjei has one goal and one assist in four games for Minnesota so far this season.

THIS SECTION is all about Skjei


Skjei’s goal starts at 1:30

We're facing Megatron, a terrific D-line, and other strengths in this week's opponenst, and we're using bandwidth on an acquisition that traveled more than Paladin?

Off Topic:  I'd just like to point out that I am 3-0 in one of my fantasy leagues, starting Geno Smith every week. The league is starting to rage at me. I play the only other undefeated team this week, heres to 4-0 with Geno!

I regret advocating releasing Cromartie, oh my, he was willing to take a pay cut so he can retire a Jet man o man.

Next week, well get a report that Lewis was released and that they resigned Lankster, cut Marcus Williams to make room to resign CB Mcfadden..lol common guys, I see the pattern here.

"Balace out," that's a euphemism for it can't get any worse...

As far as adding players, didn't the Mets let Justin Turner go last Dec.

Well the Dodgers would like to thank you very much.

Why not just sign a veteran free agent or make a trade for a corner?

Can the Jets please STOP with the Musical Corners!!!

Will somebody give Itzdick one more corner so this game will stop???

From the Lequan Lewis scouting report:


"The only time I could find him an example of him playing the slot was with the Jets, where he backed way off and gave up an easy catch underneath."


Ah, so he's taking Adams' role?

@duke1958 How do you know the amount of catches he'll get on Sunday?   I'm worried about the matchup, but don't see a reason to rip them until after the game unfolds.

@Lloyd Jay Reife When I see your name and avatar I always think it actually says Lord Jay Reife like back in the middle ages for some reason.  Just had to share.  Haha.

Two thumbs way the f$%^ up on that.


Marcus Williams is a really intriguing big developmental corner.  I love his moxie.

@Mike Gonzalez

Because LeQuan Lewis knows the scheme better than those other guys, and he's probably no worse than they are (and might be better).

@williamg1 

Why does the word "slot" in your comment link to a stupid ad???

I'll bet the over on 1 for 13. That being said, if Geno can avoid turnovers, the Jets should beat the Lions at home, because if they can't beat middle of the road teams at home, it's going to be a miserable season.

So the Jets are going to win this Sunday because it will be a miserable season if they don't...

I like your optimism!!!
