How many Canadian teams can you make that would contend for a medal?

With Canada, you probably have about 8-10 players that are absolute locks and nobody would question. The other 12-14 are debatable. With other countries, generally the argument is only over the last 2 or 3 roster spots.
It seems to me that the United States, Sweden, Russia, and in many years, Finland, all have enough top performers to compete for a high medal. So having a high percentage of "debatables" doesn't seem to enhance the chances of Canada winning multiple medals.
