Interesting. If you look at the recent U18 USA roster you have 2 players, both from CT on the team and no one else from MA/NE. It felt like there were notable MA/NE players who are talented enough to be on that team that were missing. The D1 numbers shared up thread would suggest that more than 2 players should have made the team. It is always interesting in how these teams are put together and how they ultimately preform in competition.
