All-star injury ward
I have never, ever seen this number of all-star replacements:
Added to the Western Conference roster are Scott Niedermayer and Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks and Dallas Stars forward Mike Ribeiro. Named to the Eastern Conference roster are Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin and Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas.The curse of the all-star game?
The players named today replace Colorado Avalanche forward Paul Stastny, Detroit Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg, Stars defenseman Sergei Zubov, New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur and Penguins forward Sidney Crosby.
(And isn't it interesting how both starting netminders have quietly bowed out of participating. As far as I know, Brodeur's health is just fine.)
