07:42 AM ET 02.06 | Your move, Steve Yzerman. [Steven Stamkos'] inability to play sets up a potentially difficult situation for Yzerman, who must name a replacement for Canada and who passed over Tampa Bay captain Marty St. Louis when the team was named last month. If St. Louis, clearly hurt by the snub, is not named, it would be the third time Yzerman has passed over the 38-year-old right wing, having also done so in putting together Canada's 2010 gold-medal-winning team. Yzerman said a replacement will be named within 48 hours. ... But the immediate story is Stamkos, 23, a two-time Rocket Richard trophy winner as the NHL's top goal scorer, who felt so good during practices that he said Tuesday that he had no reason to believe he would not be cleared.

Whatever happened to the good old days, when the Leafs "Father's trip" golf outing in FLA was held in mid-April?

Well...you do have Hudler. About the same size:)

So does this mean that he takes the roster spot (I'd guess, considering all the whoop-la) - they already nominated alternate/injury replacements (2 forwards and one d, or something like that), didn't they?

Well it's official St Louis is going to Sochi
