Also got lucky in staying healthy while Naslund suffered a pretty much a career ending injury back in 2004.. if not for that Naslund would have been producing at 80-90 point clip until the end.
Based on anything other than rattling off standings/playoff records?

Uh No. Not even close. Only a person who was too young to watch him play would even think such a thing.

When you think about it.. Naslund could have quite possibly won 3 art ross trophies in a row back then with a little bit of luck.

2nd in 01-02 and 02-03.. but didn't he also finish 4th in 03-04 while missing 4 games and playing with a concussion? and having Bertuzzi (who was having a terrible year) missing 17 games?
was the final game of the 2003 season bad luck, or was it a sickening gutless choky display the likes of which naslund was known for?
