Rocco Grimaldi (UND/FLA) in Team USA doghouse big time. Hasn't played a shift today. Sounds as if it's performance/attitude related. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) December 31, 2012 You kind of have to wonder if USA Forward Rocco Grimaldi was being sent a message by USA coach Phil Housley? To be honest with you, I haven't been impressed with very many of the players on team USA this year. It's obvious that Jacob Trouba is a men among boys and Seth Jones has looked pretty good to me, the rest of the team has been kind of underwhelming. There's no "I" in team so we will see what happens going forward. I don't think this version of team USA is all that strong anyways. @tsnbobmckenzie 100% correct. They aren't happy with his "selfish" play. Either not seeing his teammates or not passing, either way,no bueno — Julie Robenhymer (@JulieRobenhymer) December 31, 2012 @umdpenaltybox @tsnbobmckenzie Was kind of playing like it vs. Canada. Think he'll get some ice in QF though. Message sent. — Chris Peters (@chrismpeters) December 31, 2012
