The initial 16-player roster for the World Cup of Hockey is set, and Team Canada's brass - led by general manager Doug Armstrong - has less than three months to fill out the full 23-man roster.
Here's a look at who should be getting the call:
Perry is a Stanley Cup champion, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, and a World Junior Championships gold medalist, and since Canada traditionally values pre-existing chemistry, expect him to line up alongside Getzlaf in this tournament.
The 24-year-old helped Canada to a World Championship in 2015, and should be called upon to represent his country once again as a premiere player at his position.
The Philadelphia Flyers captain has been as consistent as they come as an NHL center, averaging 0.9 points per game in his career.
Overlooked for the past two Winter Olympics, Giroux was a member of Canada's 2015 World Championship-winning team, and also won World Junior gold in 2008.
Canada is already stacked at center, but Giroux's right-handed shot could slot in as a winger, and a dynamic one at that.
The Boston Bruins winger sits in a tie with Benn and Tyler Seguin for third among NHL players with 32 goals this season, and in six fewer games. Only Alex Ovechkin and Patrick Kane can boast a higher total.
And speaking of chemistry, Marchand has been excelling alongside Patrice Bergeron for years, and, like in Boston, this pair could give international opposition all it can handle at either end of the ice.
Don't forget, Marchand also has two World Junior gold medals as a member of the 2007 and 2008 teams.
This one's too easy.
Subban is one of the game's most exciting players, and is a Norris Trophy winner as the top player at his position.
Questions abound in regards to his propensity to give away the puck, but he leads the league in that category because a player of his skill level commands it on his stick as often as possible.
The World Cup is meant to be a showcase for the game's best players, and Subban is indeed just that. He should be on this team, especially with the tournament being played in his hometown.
Like a few mentioned above, Burns played for the 2015 World Championship team, and his superb play offensively and defensively warrants a spot on the World Cup team, especially considering his familiarity with Marc-Edouard Vlasic, one of the four named to the initial roster.
A series of unfortunate injuries have befallen Letang in recent seasons, but the two-time World Championship gold medal winner and Stanley Cup champion has been good for 0.61 points per game in his career.
It's high time for Letang to be featured in a major international tournament.
