You're both correct.

However... http://www.eurohockey.net/players/sh...i?serial=15493

And regarding the topic, it would seem that Petteri Nummelin will be Pitkänen's actual replacement. He's a LOT closer to Joni in playing style and offensive skills than Niemi (the defenseman). Assuming he has enough time to recover from his back problems that is...and no, I'm not making this up.

Should Nummelin be forced to skip, the next candidate would be Niinimaa but he's not healthy enough to play, either. Then there's Jere Karalahti - same story. Then there is....

....Jyrki Lumme.

He seriously is the best replacement we have left at this point.
