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.
Not according to the mouth breathers over at TSN last night. They don't even have him in the picture. Not even as an extra forward. If I remember correctly, they selected Jamie Benn as the extra.
