I do not think that Markus Naslund's jersey should be retired.

Statistically, he is one of the best Canucks ever. I do not and cannot argue that. However, his lack of both playoff success as the team captain and unwillingness to be a truly visible and engaging sports figure in this town leave many to feel that he has not earned the right to have his #19 hanging in the rafters of GM Place. I am a die-hard Canucks fan, but never in his tenure did I get the sense that Naslund bled Canuck blue (or green or yellow/red/orange or ...). He did not wear his heart on his sleeve like Linden or Smyl, and in that way, he never did own the hearts of Canucks Nation.
