Stevens all-star replacement

In article on TSN.CA it says Stevens will not be participating in the all-star game next weekend despite being voted a starter by the fans.

Who should be his replacement on the team?

Stevens uncertain about return.

Would've said Gonchar but he's out. My guess would be Rafalski because of the whole "keep the # of reps per team intact" thing from the NHL.
Anyone know who Bettman's picks were? I thought the Commish would get picks for players who gave a service to hockey. Someone like Yzerman, but he's not there so there goes my theory...

Are there any teams in the East that do not have a representative for the main all-star game?

I'd say Chara, he deserves to go more than most people, but the Sens have two in the game plus one in the young stars game..

crazy thought, Brian Leetch
-3rd in fan voting
-was supposed to play last year but was injured

doubtful, because there are more likely candidates, but just my own crazy thought

They do? I believe Alfie, Hossa and Redden are in the big game and Spezza got snubbed for the Young Stars.

Who was it you thought was in the Young Stars, kmad?

Anyway, good point about Chara - if the Sens have too many, I'd rather have seen him go than Redden - he fits the Allstar game stuff better with his hard shot and his height. More interesting for the fans.

Chara. He's the best d-man on one of the best defensive teams. He probably should have gone ahead of Redden.

Aucoin has been named to the All-Star team. If Stevens can't compete, he is well-deserving of that starting position. As for replacements, I'd have to say Zdeno Chara

Dick Tarnstrom. I think a team that doesn't have any reps should get the spots left by injury, except if that team doesn't have a rep with the injury.

Another option, is since Stevens was voted in, the next available guy under defenseman.

I think Chara deserves it. The guy leads the NHL in plus minus (and this time the stat is telling), he's got 28 points, 11 of them goals, and he's playing physical, shut down hockey. He should be there over Redden, and with MacInnis out, could win the hardest shot competition if he's there. That being said, four players from one team may be unlikely.

I think leading a team in scoring as a defenseman has to count for something. But I'd give Chara or Gonchar (if healthy) the nod first.

Or Souray. I bet he could really wire it in the hardest shot competition.

Souray is in. With Gonchar injured, Ottawa already sending 3 players, and Toronto sending 2 players, NJ should have Rafalski to replace Stevens, as all 3 NJ players were voted in. Poti replaced Leetch as NYR's sole representative last year, but I believe he also may have been leading D in scoring at the time of his selection. I could see making a case for Tarnstrom, just to represent Pittsburgh, and being that I think this may be his only chance. Rafalski was selected in 2002 for the North American roster, but was replaced by Chelios due to injury. Nashville and Phoenix were not represented last year.
