07:32 AM ET 08.23 | If you're an optimist, you see Team Canada's Olympic hockey roster as almost half full. But as Hockey Canada CEO Bob Nicholson told Sportsnet on Thursday, the number of spots up for grabs ahead of next year's Winter Games is at an all-time high. "By my count, I'm at 11," Nicholson said of how many players are locks to make Team Canada's 2014 roster. "It's never been that low. The number has always been higher." Of the 23 players Canada took to Vancouver in 2010, 15 were invited to the Olympic orientation camp in Calgary Aug. 25-28. "I'd say there are probably, conservatively, maybe 10 locks," Team Canada executive director Steve Yzerman said. "We're taking 25 players (to Sochi). Ten may be a conservative number, sure, but half of this team is available for guys to make. At least half."
