Canucks and Beyond

From The Province:
Markus Naslund is recovering after elbow surgery to remove loose bone chips Thursday. It’s unclear how long the problem had been bothering the pending unrestricted free agent.
One report has suggested Naslund won’t return to Vancouver if coach Alain Vigneault comes back.
The first bit of a news is a surprise; I hope the surgery went well. But the “report” of Naslund refusing to re-sign if Vigneault stays with the Canucks is probably just a matter of stating-the-obvious. Those two go together like oil-and-water, and if I had to pick one man to be associated with this team I’d pick a price-reduced Naslund in a heart beat. Scoring woes or not.
But I expect my opinion isn’t the popular one—here’s a poll to find out.
