Team Europe seems to have some firepower on both the offense and defense. With a good mix of veteran experience (Hossa and Chara) and young effort (Draisaitl and Tatar), Team Europe will be a well-rounded, powerful team.

G Jaroslav Halak, New York Islanders (Slovakia)

D Zdeno Chara, Boston Bruins (Slovakia)
D Roman Josi, Nashville Predators (Switzerland)
D Dennis Seidenberg, Boston Bruins (Germany)
D Andrej Sekera, Edmonton Oilers (Slovakia)

Well, some of us have wondered what it would be like to have Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau, and Connor McDavid on the same team and its all happening! That's not to say they'll necessarily be on the same line, but at least we'll get to see them on the same team. This could quite possibly be the fan favorite team.
