Naslund, whose career has been in decline since the end of the lockout, posted just 55 points last season, his lowest total in a decade. His shot, long the bread and butter of his game, has lost its zip, and he's no longer capable of creating his own space. Brandon Dubinsky might help, but he's no Todd Bertuzzi, Naslund's running mate in his prime. Even over a short term, you need to be able to make things happen on your own to justify that kind of cash.
saying Dubinsky is no Bertuzzi implies that we`re expecting the 104 point Naslund to return. no Dubinsky isn`t `03 Bertuzzi, but he`s certainly not Jason Jaffray, Mason Raymond, Byron Ritchie, Ryan Shannon or Alex Burrows either.
