    Davies and Hill will be on the team for sure.

    More importantly who will be the overage players?

    Donovan, McBride and Howard get my vote.

    How about you Kartik?

  2. Ronald says:

    Drop Ianni from the list.

    He stinks.

  3. Michael says:

    Danny Szetela will be there as well, I believe.

  4. kartik says:

    Whoa, Michael good catch! I was doing this off memory and Szetela is such an automatic I guess I was racking my brain too much on other players I simply forgot to list him. Yes he’s a lock and the post will be edited to reflect that.
