Hall is a lock for Team Canada. He's Canada's best LW in the NHL right now. I'm sure Eberle, Nuge and Schultz are being considered but need to have strong seasons to have a chance. Smid is a lock for the Czech team, Hemsky will be on it if he's healthy. Petry will get an invite but has basically no shot of making that team unless he has a break out season. I wouldn't consider Yak a lock for the Russian team but he definitely has a good chance to make the team. Anton Belov was the KHL's best defenseman so I'm sure he'll be invited. Marincin for Slovakia looks good too. I think the Olympics will be great for his development getting a chance to play with guys like Hossa, Chara, Visnovsky, Gaborik etc..
So I think Hall, Smid, Hemsky, Yakupov, Marincin will all be in the Olympics.
