Naslund Officially Retires

21

"I would like to sincerely thank Glen Sather and the New York Rangers for giving me the opportunity this past season in New York," said Naslund in a statement. "I would also like to thank the Vancouver Canucks and all of their fans for their support over the 11-plus seasons I was a part of their organization, as well as to the Pittsburgh Penguins where I began my NHL career." So that's it, officially. Naslund saves the Rangers an extra million bucks by retiring rather than being bought out. Feel free to share some more Naslund stories here. Maybe post some links or pics of Nazzy if you got them. I'm sure we'll reminisce more when his #19 is retired in GM Place.
