While they still possess above-average (passing?) skills and hockey IQ, Sedins have no motivation to play with urgency. And as we have seen over the years repeatedly, they are amazingly reluctant to shoot the puck for 1st liners and have no plan B when going gets tough -- i.e. if the other team breaks their cycle game (which now most teams seem to have figured out how to, btw) they simply become liabilities on the other end.
Don't get me wrong I still think Sedins will be in the HHOF someday and the best players we ever had. But everyone including Sedins themselves, know their chances for the Cup has been long gone and the only thing left is playing out the strings.
I appreciate Sedins' loyalty to this city and the fans... it's just sad we aren't moving forward anytime soon having them carry the team until they retire, which is also unfair to them.
