My first impression is Abdelkader on Team USA? Uh, that is quite a reach, but then again Torts is the coach so we've realistically got no shot to begin with.

John Tortorella reiterates that U.S. team must stand for anthem


John Tortorella, the coach of Team USA for the upcoming World Cup of Hockey, isn't backing off on his comments that he'd bench any player who didn't stand for the U.S. national anthem.

On Tuesday, Tortorella told ESPN: "If any of my players sit on the bench for the national anthem, they will sit there the rest of the game." The coach seemed taken aback Wednesday by the reaction to his comment, but he did not backtrack on his stance.

"I'm not backing off," Tortorella said after the team's on-ice workout Wednesday.

"I'll tell you right now. Try to understand me. I'm not criticizing anybody for stepping up and putting their thoughts out there about things. I'm the furthest thing away from being anything political. No chance I'm involved in that stuff," Tortorella said.
