I may go a little bit off the board here, but I don't want to see Aaltonen in the lineup. I understand that he has all the tools to be a good player even in the NHL. But he can't score to save his life... At least in the national team anyway. Since 2010 World Championships, Aaltonen has played 22 games with the national team and has scored three goals. And that's in a attacking role with good linemates and loads of PP minutes. And let's take a look at Aaltonen's "goal" at 2011 WHC:



Mikko Lehtonen was widely criticized for his lack of production last spring. Apparently Aaltonen's fancy moves are enough to hide the fact that he has the same problem.
