Ryan McDonagh has a very good chance to represent the United States at the Winter Olympics.
Skating and speed will be important facets on the larger ice and McDonagh can help out the team's defense corps in both of those areas. He would love the experience of playing in the Olympics as well. "You watch the 1980 team, the 1960 team, the way they won the gold medal it makes you want to do what they did, represent your country, it's the highest honor, you don't get to do that very often as a hockey player, so when you get that opportunity you want to make everybody proud," McDonagh said. "... It's going to be hard not to kinda think about it, but the way I'm going to approach it is, I'll think about it, process where I'm at, but ultimately, my job is with the Rangers, helping to try them win, and that'll be my focus."
