agreed, i dont expect anything more from Naslund than what he did last year in a stifiling vancouver system. If he can duplicate those numbers, im happy.

hes not being paid like a franchise player, hes got a very moveable contract.

Same thing with Redden, if youre expecting him to lead the league in points by a defenseman, youre sorely misunderstanding his game. What you should expect is 40-45 points MAX, and solid defense, with an excellent first pass. His overall game is really something i love to watch. He doesnt do anything at a truly elite level, except for maybe his first pass, but he does everything at a high level, and really has no holes in his game. Its all about expectations.

Redden is overpaid, there is no doubt about that, but he allows the defense to slot down perfectly, and will be the perfect partner for a guy like Staal.
