Which winger would play with which center, and would the Penguins automatically put Guentzel back on Crosby’s wing?

Kris Letang, Tristan Jarry named All-Stars

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports Letang is chosen to replace Guentzel while Jarry snags his first All-Star nod as a replacement for Korpisalo. Jake Guentzel will still get credit for being named an All-Star this season, but due to his unfortunate injury, he will not be able to participate in the festivities at the end of the month. With Guentzel out, the NHL had to pick a replacement from the Penguins to fill in, and who better than “Last Man In” nominee Kris Letang. This will be Letang’s sixth All-Star appearance, surpassing the mark set by Paul Coffey for the most...
