Blake Wheeler – On being selected to Team USA. When/How did he find out? What went through his mind when he heard? Pressure off or more pressure? How does it compare to World Juniors or World Championship? Has he spoken to any of his Olympic teammates? Who is he close with on the team. Thoughts on guys (Okposo, Ryan) who didn’t make the team. Any idea of what his role will be? Thoughts on going to Russia. Additional sense of satisfaction playing way onto the team.
