Thank You Markus

One of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to play for the Vancouver Canucks franchise. The epitomy of class & skill, all the best in New York.

This really is a sad day. Although I wasn't a big supporter or re-signing him, it is still sad to see someone who has been a top 5 player in this franchises history

We'll see his number in the rafters soon...

I am somewhat surprised he is gone, too bad he never received a fitting farewell.

I don't think I've ever said this about that team, but with Naslund there, I hope the Rangers win the cup (if the Canucks don't of course.)

Would've loved for him to stick around and win it in Vancouver, but it seems that ship has sailed. Best of luck for everything in NY, thanks for everything Markus.

Not only the Canucks organization, but the city of Vancouver lost one of the classiest players ever today.

I personnaly thought I would see him in a Canuck Uni again this year.

However its the best move for the Canucks IMO...

Now who am I suppose to blame ????????

Naslund was a great Canuck.

It was a tough time for him after the Moore hit, but he will go down as one of the great all-time Canucks.

Good luck in New York, Markus. Except when you play the Canucks.

I'm going to miss him.. and I'm not going to stop my Markus Naslund card collection.

Best player in Canucks history in my books.

Thanks for everything you did Markus. At his peak he was one of the best in the league. Sad to see him go but it's best for everyone. Although I wish he could have finished his career here.

Irrespective of what all the Naslund bashers say, its a sad day in Canuckland.

He was great Canuck and deserves our respect. He will be missed.

I hope he gets a 15 minute standing ovation when he comes back to Vancouver for a game.

or a 5 minute one.
either way a long one.

Best of luck Nazzy

Soooooo happy


Didn't think this day would ever happen. Always pictured Naslund as a canuck for the rest of his career. Now that it has actually happened i'm excited.

New captain!




I actually never hated Naslund. Met him a few times, one of those nice athletes. I'm just glad we're moving on.

Didn't want him back next season, he needed a change
Nazzy is one of the greatest Canucks of all time and I wish him the best

I hope the Rangers play a game in Vancouver next season. Hopefully the fans will give Nazzy the tribute he deserves

There's too many words to say and yet all of them seem unable to explain how I feel right now, it's like when you lose your most prized possession, and then you're gonna see another kid using it.

Not his fault the Moore hit happened. Never caused problems, and you could tell he wanted to win. Perhaps not the best captain but I don't think it's something he could have fixed. Overall, I'll miss him and hope he does well with the Rangers.

I'm annoyed we let him leave. I had hoped to see him retire here.

Naslund gave everything he had for this team and to that i applaud him. Word is he had a substanital offer on the table from minnesota that may have surpassed the Rangers offer but Nazzy chose to go to the east. Naslund will be a hell of a player next year I wouldn't be surprised if he puts up 70 points and flirts with ppg territory. Best of luck to nazzy and the rags!

Generally -- but not always -- a excellent player. Probably would have been scoring title winner and perennial all-star had he played in what we can call the Oiler 80s. Class act, and one of the better players to play for this franchise.

Not entirely a successful captain, though. Probably would have benefited by playing with a Sundin type while in his prime. Seemed to lose his once-deadly wrist shot.

Won't personally be remembered like the more talented -- and far more ignominious -- Bure, or the stalwarts Kurtenbach and Smyl, or the franchise icon, Linden. But will be remembered as part of one of the greatest lines the Canucks ever had, the WCE -- right up there with Gradin, Smyl and Fraser.

Another era over, fittingly, with new ownership, a new GM, and Linden gone too.

Plan D now in effect: stockpile youth and picks, and cap space and add a couple of superior free agents NEXT summer (none of this Rolston, Ryder et al stuff). Persuade Luongo to suffer one mediocre year -- next year -- and hopefully the Sedins will stay, and the likes of Hodgson and whomever we pick next year will step in.

He took way more *hit from ALL of us than he deserved. One of those great guys that actually had some decent skill. I was hoping he'd be able turn things around here next season. I guess not. Best of luck in the Big Apple Nazzy.

As I've said before: I'm embarrassed as a lifelong Vancouverite for the judgement made by seemingly 50% of the fan base against Markus's captaincy and his play during the time we have had a very poor/not even close to complementary to his skill set top 6 for him to play with.

I appreciated his style when addressing the fans and media as captain.

I wasn't foolish enough to expect him to play or act like Jerome Iginla.

I appreciated him for what he was and is, and blame our organization, not him for limiting his opportunity for success, and the opportunity to finish his career as a Canuck.
