Canadian Olympic leader and soon-to-be Hall of Famer Steve Yzerman invited 46 Canadian players to a pre-Olympic get-together in Calgary this summer.

That's 12 more than his American counterpart Brian Burke invited to the U.S. camp, which will be held the week before in Chicago. And it's exactly twice the number Yzerman and the rest of the Canadian Olympic brain trust will actually take to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics in February.

And all that means is Yzerman et al still must answer questions about the 50 or so quality players that weren't invited to the camp.
