2014 U.S. OLYMPIC Women's Hockey Team selection committee made a huge mistake by not selecting Gophers defenseman Milica McMillen for the 2014 Sochi Games. She's a dominant force on the blue line, moves the puck with sharp accurate passes, has a wickedly accurate shot selection, blocks shots, and can play 25-30 minutes a game at a consistently high level when necessary. Perhaps even more important in the Olympics, especially when Team USA plays Canada, McMillen plays with a football linebacker's powerful primal intensity that immunizes her against any opponent's intimidation strategy. In addition, she is always willing and prepared to deliver a "teachable moment" lesson in response to any opponent's cheap thug tactics, a competitive characteristic that likely would inspire and be adapted by her Olympic teammates. Milica McMillen is a fearless elite hockey player whose style, attitude, and force of personality are the X Factor attributes that would have made Team USA the prohibitive gold medal favorite in Sochi.

I believe last seasons Gopher TEAM could win the gold. The overall talent, chemistry, and fortitude they had was unbelievable! 41-0 is unfathonable in hockey. Add to that they were putting up video game type stats and doing it with Amanda ailing? I don't think I'm that far off base.
