Has Naslund given up on the current Canucks season?

Has Markus Naslund of the Vancouver Canucks given up on the current Canucks season? Furtermore, has he given up on the team and the NHL as well???Speaking out in an interview conducted for the swedish newspaper “Ornskioldsviks Allehanda”, Naslund had the following to say:

“No, I’m not sure I’ll be doing any further season either here or in Sweden” (saying with a sigh)

“It feels like the family needs to get their due soon, I will listen a lot to Lotta and my kids”

“Now, all I long for is for this season to be over. I’m incredibly worn out after all that has transpired. I’m sick of answering questions even if it’s part of my job as a captain. Here in Vancouver I’m almost shy of people.”

All this is my translation from swedish to english taken from Naslunds comments in this article:


So, what do you make of this? Really, when reading the article I get the impression that the comment regarding his wish for the season to be over I really think that he meant the regular season from what I could read.

What do you think?

best, Swedoman.
