1993/94 All-Rookie Team - No Yashin?

The 1993/94 All-Rookie Team was:

G: Martin Brodeur
D: Chris Pronger
D: Boris Mironov
F: Jason Arnott
F: Mikael Renberg
F: Oleg Petrov

In that season Alexei Yashin scored 79 points (only Renberg had more). How come he was voted in to the All-Rookie Team? Dose anybody know?

According to Wikipedia:
The only player to be awarded the Calder Trophy without being named to the All-Rookie Team is Pavel Bure (1991/92), because he received votes at both right wing and left wing, but not enough to lead at either position.[1] Since that time, the rules have been changed so that all forwards are voted on together.

So it can't have been that he missout on a singular position, he scored 79 points and was considered only the 4th best forward.

I'm guessing he lost out at center to Arnott, who also had a hell of a rookie year with 68pts. I'm also guessing voters preferred Arnott's stronger two way game. Petrov only made it because the votes were done by position back then rather than top 3 forwards, because clearly, Renberg, Yashin and Arnott were the three best rookie forwards that year. Apparantly the change to top 3 forwards was only made in the 94-95 season. In 1993-94 it was done by Center, top two wingers, top 2 d-men and top goalie. By 1994 they appeared to have accounted for the Bure snub by lumping all wingers in together and by 95 they appeared to account for the Yashin snub by lumping all forwards in together.

This is actually how the all-rookie team looked:

Martin Brodeur, New Jersey Goalie
Chris Pronger, Hartford Defense
Boris Mironov, Wpg., Edm. Defense
Jason Arnott, Edmonton Center
Mikael Renberg, Philadelphia Wing
Oleg Petrov, Montreal Wing

I can understand that Arnott 2-way game got him ahead of Yashin for the center-spot. But I didn't know that there C W W, thought it was F F F. So thanks for the help!

And it's better to have F F F. Isn't there some problem with All-Star Team with the same thing? Only one center, and a player like Stamkos was not on the First All-Star Team this year?
