The highlight of the U.S. men’s hockey team announcement for the Winter Olympics is who didn’t make it, like Ottawa Senators forward Bobby Ryan who seems to be the biggest snub according to Twitter posts.
No Bobby Ryan? Wow.

The Bobby Ryan snub is a real head-scratcher. 2nd only to Kessel in goals by US player since 2009-10 season with 129.

Byfuglien didn't make team USA? Defence is too small to handle CDN and Russia big fwds. No Bobby Ryan? Don't see many better scorers on USA.

very confused on no bobby Ryan..I'm seeing way too many power forwards on US

Bobby Ryan, Erik Johnson, Jack Johnson, Keith Yandle, Jason Pominville, Dustin Byfuglien, Kyle Okposo, Zach Bogosian. All should be on USA

"Not intense. That word is not in his vocabulary. It's never going to be in his vocabulary. He can't spell intense." – Burke on Bobby Ryan

Canadians everywhere hoot and holler about the Team USA Bobby Ryan snub until Team Canada somehow picks Ryan Smyth to be their 1st line LW

The USA Olympic hockey team did not select Seth Jones, Keith Yandle or Bobby Ryan. Interesting….

Bobby Ryan and the US D-core are the surprises for me with Team USA selections. Buff, Trouba and Jones elite right handed D big debate

Still believe Okposo deserved a spot, but Bobby Ryan and Keith Yandle the two bigger snubs

No Bobby Ryan, Keith Yandle. Obvious omissions. Wheeler had really strong couple weeks for Winnipeg. Sure that was huge in bumping Ryan.

If Bobby Ryan was left off the Olympic roster for Blake Wheeler as rumored, that sounds like over-thinking the big ice to me.

No Kyle Okposo or Bobby Ryan is dumbfounding. I woulda grabbed Dustin Byfuglien too, but I'm a known Hamburger Slayer-lover.

I like the USA roster except that there's no bobby Ryan, and the defense looks a bit young. I'd rather have yandle or buf instead of orpik
