  1. Yes or no to the Sedin’s next year?

    I'll be the first to admit that after the 2011 playoffs my admiration for the Sedin's was wearing thin when they failed to rise to the occasion and get it done in the final. Especially after going up 2-0 in the series. Now though with the changing of the guard and Horvat/Boeser/Baertchi stepping up to be top line I do see a place for them. With all the injuries this year they've really stepped up to fill the void and I've been very impressed with their play making and their command of the play in the corners. Henrik is an expert at taking pucks away in the corner and then creating space for himself to make a play by boxing out opponents. They may no longer be as fast as they once were but they can still hang with the top players in the NHL and I'd like to see them sign on for one more season, the caveat being that they take a pay cut. I think $4m per twin would be fair. At the same time get rid of Louie Erikson's bloated $6m contract and that will free up space to sign Boeser on at a reasonable salary and pick up another 2nd or 3rd line forward.
  2. Don’t Re-sign the Sedin Twins

    The OP makes some valid points. I noticed a definite decline in the twins play last season. I'm not prepared to throw them out with the bath water just yet though. I think it would be in the clubs best interest to sign them to a 1 year deal and then reevaluate after another season, rather than signing them to a 2-3 year deal. It might make them work a bit harder to get another extension if they really want to stay in Vancouver and it will also be beneficial to all the young up and comers. Henrik and Daniel are such classy players with an enormous skill set. They can teach the young prospects a lot about how to play the game. Think of what a benefit it was to have Kesler play with Sundin. I think Hank and Dank will provide leadership and be fine role models for the new guys. ...and you never know. A young and eager group of guys with a few talented veterans could make a run deep into the playoffs and surprise everyone....they just need better goaltending...but that is for another thread.
