This.

Recall that a rookie Crosby didn't play in 2006 and was never seriously considered, and, though he supposedly was considered, a sophomore Stamkos wasn't selected for 2010. We all know how Crosby's rookie season went, while Stamkos had 21 goals and 17 assists through 39 games on his way to a 50-goal season on the day the 2010 roster was announced.

IMO, even Taylor Hall is an unlikely choice, though he's got a much better chance if he lights it up early than either RNH or MacKinnon, even if the latter two are outperforming him.

Crosby will be 26 when the Olympics start...

Which means he'll only be 30 in 2018.
