Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the Edmonton Journal,
How did the 33-year-old Swede, who finished second to Peter Forsberg for the NHL’s MVP award just four years ago, suddenly lose his offensive magic?
Naslund has averaged 38 goals a year the past three seasons, but nearing the season’s midway point, he has 12 and hasn’t scored in a month. How come?
As with most slumps, there are a lot more questions than answers and different shades of grey.
- Is he hiding an injury? Maybe.
- Does he miss buddy Todd Bertuzzi’s hulking presence around the net? Definitely.
