Naslund sits / Salo out

Leave it to Alain Vigneault to speak his mind. When asked why Markus Naslund was not playing on the PP as much last night Vigneault said:

"He wasn't playing well, it's as simple as that. I just go with the guys that are playing their best. He wasn't one of them."
Zing! Nothing like calling out your captain! But I admire that about Vigneault. And letting your best players play more is something that was sorely lacking under the Crawford regime.

Sammi Salo apparently tweaked his groin last night. I thought he was ill, because he sure looked pale when the camera showed a closer view of his face last night. Apparently the flu is going around the Nuck room because Lukas Krajicek is suffering from it as well. Sure didn't hurt his game did it?? So Salo will not make the trip to Edmonton, and as a result, Alex Edler has been called up from Manitoba.

Naslund doesn't seem to be himself this season. I often wondered if he was hurt, lost some of his passion or his age is getting the best of him.
I don't get to see him much here in the East but when I do catch a game he doesn't have the same jump I remember him having in the past.

I think I've cursed his name more than praised it this season. You guys want him? We'll take Bergeron straight up!
