Naslund might be a lot of things, but he’s also the Canucks’ captain, the leading scorer in franchise history and is in the discussion of the greatest Canuck of all time. When a player of his stature is about to enter unrestricted free agency, there is usually some sign from the organization that re-signing him is a priority; that a great deal of importance has been attached to securing his name on a contract.
To date, there has been no such sign from the Canucks and while that could change, it’s also difficult conceiving of a set of circumstances where Naslund returns to this team next season.
Let’s start with simple economics. Naslund makes front-line money—$6 million US—and has provided second-line production for two seasons now.
