Roberto Luongo – Will be 38 years old next time around.

Mike Smith – Was really the default 3rd choice, will be almost 36 in Feb 2018

Dan Hamhuis – Didn’t play much  in his prime, will be 35 next time around

Patrick Sharp – Fell down the depth chart as the tournament went on, will be 37 in 4 years.

Patrick Marleau – Had a very solid tournament but will be 38 before South Korea

Chris Kunitz – Turned some heads that were turnable, but will also be 38.

Martin St. Louis – Will be 43 next time around.

The rest of the players were all integral parts of the team and health permitting will still be at the top of their games in 2018.

So that leaves space for 4 forwards, a defenseman and 2 goalies to gain roster spots:
