Rob Blake might not play for Canada

According to a report in Wednesday's Toronto Sun, Colorado Avalanche defenceman Rob Blake is unlikely to take part in the World Cup of Hockey later this summer.


The paper reports that Blake had surgery on his shoulder after the season and, while his recovery is progressing, the damage was more serious than expected.




I'm hoping Jay Bouwmeester is the one chosen to replace Blake.

I'm getting real scared here. First no Yzerman, now no Blake!

Al Strachan says Scott Hannan will likely be the replacement.

IT NOW APPEARS all but certain that Colorado Avalanche defenceman Rob Blake will not be a part of Team Canada in next month's World Cup. Instead, he will be replaced by Scott Hannan of the San Jose Sharks.
...
The Team Canada organizers had a short list of potential replacements which included the Maple Leafs' Bryan McCabe, the Florida Panthers' Jay Bouwmeester, and a couple of Hannan's teammates, Mike Rathje and Brad Stuart.

But Hannan's strong playoff performance -- something that was absent from McCabe's portfolio -- tipped the scales in his favour and when Blake makes his decision final, Hannan's selection will be announced.
