10:27 AM ET 02.08 | Team Canada coach Mike Babcock revealed he was given some input as to who the replacement for Steven Stamkos should be, after he was ruled out of the Games on Wednesday due to his broken leg not being fully healed. The coaching staff, Babcock explained, had one of six votes, with the management team led by Steve Yzerman holding the other five. Only this time around, when it came to Martin St. Louis, they were in unanimous agreement he should be the replacement. "We didn't have to vote at all; everyone just said St. Louis is the guy," Babcock said. "Prior to that, we all voted and if you got consensus you were in and if you didn't get consensus you weren't. It's personal to the individual player, but it's not about any one person. It's about our country and giving ourselves the best chance."
