Naslund? Two goals, eight points and minus-9 in his last 15. Certainly the Canucks have suffered greatly with the extended blue-line absences of aces Ed Jovanovski and Sami Salo. But great players rise above these situations and Naslund has been unable to do so. His offensive numbers since early March, the acknowledged start of the stretch drive, are nowhere near enough. On Monday, in a critical 1-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, Naslund failed to register a shot on goal in the final two periods. He was in the penalty box when the winning goal was scored. He was minus-3 a day earlier in Anaheim. His plus-minus on the year is a team worst minus-16, truly an embarrassing number for a player of his abilityread on (reg. req. but normally I can't get past the registration process, this time I did and you may too)
