So what do the Canucks do?
Suddenly, the player market has opened up and some really, REALLY good players are available.

With Dany Heatley announcing he wants out of Ottawa and into the Western conference you can bet that 14 teams in West are preparing their offer. The Wings can’t take Heatley because he makes more than Lidstrom and that goes against their policy, not to mention Zetterberg and Datsyuk make less as well.

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.
