Naslund might just find himself back in a defensive system...Things that are said in July might not be practical in October....
SOS, did you take a look at Vancouver's roster?

They are lacking quite a few forwards that can produce.

This is really such a simple answer to that question that I can't believe you posed it in the first place.

They wanted to spread the offense. Plain and simple. You can't have every offensive player on your team on one line if you want to win.
