Mats Naslund Classic Moment

With all this sundin talk, it got me thinking about our last and only good swede to ever play for the habs, Mats Naslund

This was sweet



I'd imagine if hf boards existed back then, pat burns would have been roasted for having skrudland and mcphee on the ice with the season pretty much on the line.

Man, I misread "Markus Naslund" and was wondering what you were smoking...

My all time favorite player in the NHL, not just Hab wise.

Look at the players like St.Louis and Sullivan who are small and skilled wearing that number 26 as a tribute to Mats Naslund...he was a really good one. I still remember him getting 5 assists playing with Mario Lemieux in the Allstar game, he set the record for assists while Mario set the record for points.

The "Little Viking" was amazing, our last 100 point man as well.

Do you remember how Joel Queneville use to call him, out of ignorance? He always called him Mots Neslund, he was TVA or Radio-Canada's play-by-play dood back then, can't quite remember..

You mean Claude Quennville right ? Joel would be a bad hiring, being a unilingual anglo and all. Rad-Can was very biased in their hiring practices, only hiring those who spoke French.

My favorite moment was a game in the 80's, when there was a problem with the boards in the forum before the start of the game. Naslund, being a carpenter back in Sweden, was given a hammer and some nails and went to work while in gear fixing the boards so that the opening face-off wouldn't be delayed.
That was pretty different.

Major bump.

Mats Näslund is competing in a swedish tv-show versus other athletes (First episode of his group is airing right now in Sweden). Today was his day, they showed his career highlights.

He won the olympics, wc and stanley cup. The biggest according to him was by no doubt the stanley cup. Le petit viking got some kinds words from Patrick Roy. He also called Roy the greatest goaltender in the NHL ever.

1966, when Mats was 7 years old, a local tv-channel showed up at the rink and recorded some footage of him. He was the smallest and youngest of the whole group, some boys were up to 11 years old. The interviewer said "Just wait until Mats Näslund and his teddybears have gotten more years and more weight on their bodies. That's when the Three Crowns (the swedish national team) are going to be to count with again. That's what they promise in Timrå (where he grew up)."

"The penalty shot in Lillehammer is one of the worst things I've ever done. It wasn't even a shot on goal. When it was time for sudden death penalty shots, both me and Håkan Loob said we couldn't do it. We, the older ones, thought it was too much. On the other hand, Foppa (Peter Forsberg) was young and didn't care."

I'm not sure if you guys can watch it, but here's the link (The highlights of his career starts at 17:50 and it's in swedish): http://www.svtplay.se/video/1155052/...pisodes&sida=1

Unfortunately, that video is Sweden-only.

I can't believe Montreal stopped drafting Swedes for a bit.

Sweden is like a known gold mine for good hockey players. Glad we're back and got promising ones like Collberg and Nygren.

We never hear anything that genuine at the Bell's these days.

Naslund was my favorite Habs player as a kid.

The 1988-89 Habs were easily the best team we've iced since '79. 1981-82 comes close but they blew it in the 1st round whereas 85-86 they peaked at the right time. The Habs that year were a splendid mix of ruggedness, defense, goaltending and scoring. Just happens to be that Calgary was better. The Habs had 115 points and won 53 of 80 games in a time without shootouts or OT loser points. Take away those SO wis or losses and replace with ties and make the OTL's pure losses and we're 23-13-5 and even with that pace we'd be 45-25-10 in an 80 GP season. That 88-89 team was 15 points better than our current pace. And the amazing part is they started 4-7-1 but finished a ridonculous 49-11-8.
