I love you Sedins. 12.2M for both Sedins in this era is a blessing

With all this money talk, about Weber, Suter, Parise, let me just say, I love the Sedins.
At 6.1m, seeing as they are top 5 in this league, and I personally would take D.Sedin over Parise as left wing any day.

I may be biased but fact remains, D.Sedin IMO is a better player and is AAV 6.1m vs Parise @ 12m.

We are basically getting both Sedins for the price of what Zach Parise is going for the next 3 years.

What sucks for other NHL players is how the rise in Cap means players who had longer terms are now getting crap money comparably. I mean Parise is getting Crosby money, he is worth that, no.

Either way, thank you Sedins, not only for your play on ice, for your community work and hard work throughout the year but for staying in Vancouver for almost 3+ Million less than what you would fetch on the market.

Love your best fan,
Sedinry

Yeah $6.1m for an over point-per-game 1st liner is looking like quite the bargain nowadays.

When they resign after their contract are up, will they ask for 7 to 8 each?

8.2 for the entire first line here, when you include Burrows.

In the current market that might not even get you one 1st line free agent.


Oops...
Math is hard!
I meant 14.2.

Sedin x 2 + Burr = ???

Daniel is a lot better than Parise. They are on 2 of the best contracts in the nhl, their market value would be 8-9 mil

your a fu**ing moron, stop trolling these forums IDIOT

Does Parise have a Cup? Does he even have a Gold Medal? No SEDINS do though.

Does Suter or Weber have a Cup? NOPE, last I checked we wiped there A$$es clean during the 2nd round.

You mean 14.2million, each Sedin has a cap hit of 6.1 mil.

man how many times does it have to get through all of your heads you can't compare what people just signed for with what others signed for previously. Its a completely different story. Salary Cap was a lot lower back when the Sedins signed. It was about 10 million less than now! Wait for their contract's to end they'll be making close to 9 million.

They were Over a point this season, after going to the Stanley Cup finals. I don't have to tell you that they had almost 100 pts for the past 3-4 years.

They'll bounce back to 100+ each this year. I know it.

Yeah they're total class acts [sedins] for sure, but those contracts were made a while ago..
We'll have to see how it all pans out over the next few years... that being said, i believe the sedins will remain humble and take whatever contract they're givin as long as they can play in vancouver. IMO the sedins wouldn't play anywhere other than here and MoDo anyways so, i have no worries.

Which is why if you read my original post, you'll see I explicitly state this exact fact. It sucks for NHLers who signed long term contracts.

But that being said, not really... Sidney Crosby signed a new contract where he makes exactly the same amount - 8.7m cap hit. Parise is worth the same as Crosby? Not last I checked.

Although it often doesn't seem like it..Sedins are two separate players. The line has a 14.2 Cap Hit. Not 8.1

Don't care if the Sedins scored at a 3 point a game pace, until they bring a Cup to Vancouver the money paid is still worthless.

You do understand the cap hit for Parise is 7.5mil, not 12mil. He only makes 12mil for 2 years.

The Sedins are 2 of the most humble and loyal players in the nhl. I bet they'd rather stay in Vancouver for only 7 mil, than a team like Montreal for 9 mil.

This is a mixed blessing if MG has set that as the bar meaning he won't pay any other player more than the Sedins. As the years pass by, if you hold to this, you will miss out on getting elite level players.

Very good point OP, The Sedins and Burrows happens to be one of the best top lines in the NHL and also one of the cheapest. Us Canuck fans are very very lucky.

Burrows at 2 million is the best deal ever after Daniel and Henrik of course. I mean 30 goals at 2 million that is better than Rick nash at 7.8 million dollars! with the same amount of points!

Kesler is making 5 million.

Our team are full of bargain players, honestly. Including Hamhius, Bieska, and Jason Garrison now. Looking at next years list of UFA's, he is a steal for us. No questions asked.
