As it was in 2010, the status of Steven Stamkos is a huge issue for Team Canada at the Winter Olympics.

For the Vancouver Games, the question was whether or not one of the league's top young scorers was ready to represent his country on the world's biggest stage. For Sochi, the question is how to replace Stamkos on the roster.

The Tampa Bay Lightning confirmed that Stamkos will miss the games due to the leg injury sustained earlier in the NHL season. Now Team Canada has to figure out who is the right person to fill the star's spot on the roster.

That's the question this slideshow aims to answer. Read on to see who Canada might be looking at to replace Stamkos.
