Naslund's Gained New Life With Rangers

Lyle "Spector" Richardson at Fox Sports had this to say regarding Markus Naslund's start with the Rangers in a story on aging veterans bouncing back after struggling last year...

"Former Vancouver Canucks forward and team captain Markus Naslund was considered washed-up after going unsigned by the Canucks last summer but he's gained new life with the New York Rangers.

The 35-year-old Naslund is currently tied with three others for second in team scoring."

...Naslund started on fire in Prague, but when he got back to the US he looked like the old washed up player a lot of fans worried he'd be. But for the last week or so Naslund has really stepped up his game (2 goals, 4 assists in the last five games). He's looking to shoot more and seems a lot more confident on the ice.

I'd love nothing more to see Naslund become a power forward.
