    Two for sure. Three is stretching it. Past that, I don't think they have a chance.

    There are a lot of quality players that I'm sure I've missed, since I was going from the top of my head and looking at the scoring leaders. The fourth team could compete, and while they wouldn't likely win gold, I think they could certainly compete for bronze. There are countries that have the top end depth that Canada has, but no country has the same depth. The four teams listed above could certainly all finish in the top 8, although the top 10 is probably more reasonable.

    They weren't in any order. Also, there are guys on teams 3 and 4 that would be higher as well. I also didn't pay attention to position with the forwards.

    They'd have a better chance of fielding the most amount of competitive teams if they spread the talent out a bit, instead of having one "super-team".

    yeah i don't think they'd be favoured to win gold but i think they could ice 4 teams all of which would have a shot to win it. The problem mainly would be goaltending depth.

    If you went with two goaltenders per team as opposed to three, there likely wouldn't be a problem. Spread the goaltending talent out a little, so you don't have Luongo backing up Brodeur. I could see possibly four competitive teams.

    It wouldn't if you went with 2 strong goalies and then a 3rd as a safeguard that is perhaps a rookie or lesser player.

    Brodeur-Luongo Fleury

    Theodore-Turco Boucher

    Joseph-Belfour Burke

    Legace-Cloutier Auld

    Giguere-Biron Garon

    Left over:

    Madden, Ribeiro, Cammalleri, Langkow, R. Niedermayer, Torres, Horton, Perreault, Amonte, A. Carter, De Vries, Van Ryn, Sopel come to mind. Not sure about goaltenders, but I'm sure that Canada could assemble a mildly competitive 5th team.

    If other teams can ice more than one team as well -- Canada would only medal 1 team.
