Prior to the last Olympics, Canada invited 46 players to the summer camp. There were 5 goaltenders, 16 defencemen and 25 forwards. I'll use the same numbers and try to guess those spots, listing them in the order that they came to mind.

Goaltender:
Price
Luongo
Fleury
Ward
Smith

Forward:
Crosby
Stamkos
Tavares
Giroux
E. Staal
J. Staal
Bergeron
St. Louis
M. Richards
Nash
Neal
Eberle
Hall
Seguin
Kane
Skinner
Benn
Toews
Sharp
Spezza (if healthy)
Getzlaf
Perry
Thornton
Marleau
Iginla

Defence:
Weber
Doughty
Keith
Pietrangelo
Letang
Hamhuis
M. Staal
Girardi
Seabrook
Del Zotto
Vlasic
Coburn
Boyle
Bouwmeester
Phaneuf

There are tough omissions at every position. The forwards seem easiest to classify.
Only other names I can really think of are Couture, Perron, and RNH up front, and maybe Myers and Subban on D. Honestly if guys like Marleau, Phaneuf or Bouwmeester are clearly not good enough to crack the squad, I'd rather see one of the kids get the spot for the experience.
