So Long and Godspeed Markus Naslund, We Hardly Knew Thee

Markus Naslund is dead or something. He had an extra 8 mil on the books for next year but decided to retire at the ripe old age of 36. That must mean he's dead. For serious, who turns down 8 million bones to spend time with their family? He's got to be dead.
Or maybe Rangers GM Glen Sather reworked Naslund's deal so that he'd be paid a healthy sum under the table to clear up cap space for Nik Antropov and a possible run at D Jay Bouwmeetser (Yes, I'm being optimistic).
You be the judge on this one. Both scenarios seem entirely plausible to me but I'm leaning towards the former. I hope Mark enjoys eternity in heaven, playing the harp, making sweet love to angels and shit. I certainly wouldn't wish wholesome family time upon Naslund. That would just be wrong.
