Yup, I would hope Gio would decline if asked. Vlasic can go instead.

I am sure that if Karlsson is out that Giordano will be tabbed to go to the ASG. What other Pacific Division defenseman would even garner consideration in place of the best defenseman in the NHL?

Are you under the same 1 game suspension rule if you decline as an injury replacement?

Klefbom - I mean, listening to Oil fans, he is the glue that turns the Oilers from pure garbage to contenders.

If he hadn't been injured, they are likely 2nd in the NHL right now.

That would not be fair. A guy may have booked a family vacation already.

Meh. Send OEL, or Shea Theodore, or maybe Nate Schmidt (though a PED suspension probably disqualifies him).

Or, are there some rookies up for the skills comp, like Johnny in 2015?

If Gio is named replacement and actually wants to go then whatever I suppose, but resting him would certainly be nice and preferable. I'm sure his kids like seeing him there.

Even if he goes I’m still boycotting this event. It’s embarrassing and ridiculous that he wasn’t on the roster to start with. Hope you guys gained a few Sharks fans to watch with your pandering, because this Flames fan is tuning out.

No disrespect but I don't think the NHL cares. You are not their target audience for this event. Unless you have kids..

I'll do Gio a favor and not vote for him. I'm sure he would rather relax and spend time with his family.

If Karlsson is out, maybe they go with Vlasic? I feel like I heard some of the talking heads discussing how he was best defenseman in the NHL at the start of the season.
Keep the artificially high number of sharks going, and lets Gio rest.

I've enjoyed aspects of the 3v3 format, but really I wish they'd go East/West full-size teams again. I thought it was so much better overall.

They sure donít care. And I get that they pander to the host city, but it still annoys me when the Flames donít get the recognition they deserve. For Christ sakes, thereís only one team in the world better than us right now and we only get one representative? Oh well.

FWIW, Gio said in a radio interview that he really wants to go because his kid understands what it means to be an All-Star now and will be following closely as a fan. Gio wants to take his kid to the game and meet some of the other stars.

Yeah, I'd think his kid is at the perfect age for that. He was still a little young the last time Gio went.

I bet they announce tomorrow that Karlsson won't be playing and Gio will replace him.
