No goalie was going to save the absolute SUCKAGE of the WCE in the playoffs. I know it's fun to dump on Cloutier, but when the Lidstrom goal went in the series was still 2-0 Vancouver. From that point on, Naslund / Bertuzzi did nothing. If memory serves, they had 1-2 points total. They did nothing in the MN series either except talk.

Naslund's playoff legacy is a nice rush to tie a game 7 in round 1 only to lose minutes later. Think hard about ANYTHING else you remember from his playoff career. It's tough, because he was never relevant. If you can, you either don't drink enough or are the owner of a Naslund jersey. He had one career playoff gwg, and that was a 2nd period goal to make it 4-1. Bertuzzi never scored a GWG in the playoffs. Chris Higgins will go down as a better playoff performer for this team.

Edit: I forgot about another great Naslund playoff moment, remember when he got an ovation while on crutches?
