So Long Mr. Naslund

Former Penguins forward, Markus Naslund, has called it a day. One season after joining the Rangers, the 15-year veteran has decided that he has had enough.

A sad day for Pens fans indeed. After talks of the Swede returning to the Burgh, the city that drafted him in 1991... only to commit one of the worst trades of all time in 1996, last season fell through, he went on to have one last disappointing season in one of hockey's most anemic offensive units (They scored fewer goals on average than the Minnesota Wild for Lemieux's sake).

Naslund wrapped up his career with 869 points in 1117 games.
