Mostly we're looking for a new MB to take David Lee's place after the 2018 WCH.
BTW I'm not completely sure this was the plan A for the WL. I mean if Russell was able to play, he would be on court.
Sander, Russell and Jaeschke are supposed to be the 3 first choices for the OHs. We have to find a 4th one able to play at international level, which is the point why the coach is trying DeFalco and so on.
Patch is supposed to fight the opposite position as back up against Clark. We know what Carson can do at international level, now it's time for Ben to prove himself.
Erik Shoji will be around at least for the next OGs, so Brinkley can slowly adapt himself to this level and fight with Watten for a spot.
About the setters, I'd rather go with Micah and James Shaw. Let's see what happens.
We have fews spots to set and it makes sense going around the world with the B team. I'm mostly worried about taking the first division spot honestly. We need points this week.
