  • Vancouver Canuck captain Markus Naslund says he is concerned for the future of the NHL if the current labour dispute continues between the owners and players. "I think it's a dangerous game that is being played right now," Naslund said Thursday while attending a sports celebrity charity fund-raising event. "For the interest of the game and the fan support it is dangerous right now." The NHL locked out the players Sept. 15 in a dispute that centres on the owners desire for a salary cap. The players are adamant they won't accept any form of salary cap and the two sides haven't talked since Sept. 9. Naslund is afraid the longer the lockout lasts, the more the game will suffer in the United States.
    Brian Burke, the Canucks former general manager, went a step further. He fears a prolonged dispute will result in some U.S. teams folding.
