Can (I-90) replacement be expedited ?
What are my chances?
1. "Possible"? Yes. One does not get penalized by USCIS for "asking" either during the I-90 filing (and/or again during an INFOPASS inquiry appointment at your local office, after having filed the I-90 with the "Service Center"...
2. "Can (I-90) replacement be expedited ?" In my (nearly) 24 years of practice I have yet to see USCIS to agree to this one, even once..
3. "What are my chances?" Less than zero, UNLESS your "expedite request" falls within 1 of the 2 "expedite" parameters USCIS publishes on its website.
The processing of replacement green cards is currently taking 6-7 months nationwide. If need to travel, then can schedule an INFOPASS inquiry appointment at your local USICS office, and with the I-90 filing receipt, as well as date certain departure reservation request an I-551 "temporary green card stamp", which, if approved will be typically valid for 6 months.

After your I-90 is filed, you can schedule an info pass appointment at your local USCIS office and request an I-551 stamp which will serve as temporary proof of your status. The USCIS Officer will be able to explain this to you at the info pass appointment.
No, it is unlikely to be expedited. No, it will not hurt to ask. I agree that an Infopass may provide an I-551 temporary stamp if you need to travel.
