Team USA too young

Joni Hartness, Live Oak, Texas

I understand Brian Burke’s desire to have a younger generation play for Team USA, but I believe there needs to be more veteran leadership on the team.

Not to include Keith Tkachuk, Mike Modano, and/or Bill Guerin in the selection, even though they are playing well despite their age, is a disgrace.

I think Team Canada has a more balanced team, in spite of their “changing of the guard” as well.

I hope the “young guns” prove me wrong and play well in the Olympics.
