Wild forward Jason Pominville is one of the notable snubs for the American team. The team's first game is scheduled for Feb. 13 against Slovakia.
Here's what ESPN.com hockey analysts Scott Burnside and Pierre LeBrun had to say about Suter and Parise.
Burnside: Parise did it all for the New Jersey Devils, where he was captain. He does it all for the Minnesota Wild and will be counted on to do it all for the Americans in Sochi. He's the kind of player whose importance stretches far beyond the score sheet, although he'll start on the left side on one of the team's top two lines.
Suter easily leads all NHL players in average ice time per game for the Wild, and he'll do the same at the Olympics. Look for him to play with Paul Martin and anchor a defense that has lots of youth.
LeBrun: There's concern, obviously, with the star winger being on injured reserve with an injured foot. Such an important cog at both ends of the ice for Team USA, both on PP and PK. He needs to be healthy and ready to go. He was dynamic in Vancouver in 2010, and at a young age.
Team USA's No. 1 blueliner will lead the Olympic team in ice time just like he does for Minnesota. Suter will be an absolute workhorse in Sochi.
