It is hard to envision that the Sedins, Burrows and Malhotra are now the 'old men' on this team. When I think of the Sedins in particular, I still see them as those two young Swedish kids that Brian Burke drafted years back. It is amazing that they have played that many years and recieved very few injuries and the ones that they did recieve were a result of a cheap shot.
Burrows has had his share of injuries but he plays hard every shift and goes to the tough areas.
Manny Malhotra is due for a bounce back year. I hope that he can take the 3rd line centre position back this coming season or at least be back at centre on the 4th line. It just doesn't seem right to see Malhotra on the wing.
These four are going to be hard to replace when they decide to hang 'em up......all of them outstanding young men.

Yes, they are super tough in their own way and are better than ever.

The great thing about the game that the Sedins play is that they don't rely on pure speed or strength to win. It's all about skill with them.. and skill is something that doesn't go away. When other players will have to retire from injuries, or will be playing at a lesser level because they just can't zoom their way past the younger players anymore, the Sedins will still be inventing new ways to break across the blue line, set up in the offensive zone, and make amazing saucer passes for perfect tap-in goals.

Sedins will play as long and be as important to this team as Linden was. Their production will obviously slowly begin to decrease, but nonetheless will still be able to rack up at least 50-60PTS a season. By that time maybe our prospects and whatever trades we do will become our new top line.

Sedins don't look like they have any chance of slowing down any time soon.

Manny, I sure hope that he can turn around to the player he was.

Burrows, in my mind seems like he's still only like 26 maybe.

It's going to be a sad day when the Sedins retire, a very sad day indeed, I remember when they still were playing for MODO in Elitserien, god they were so good!

Sedins will be one of those players who can compete until their late 30s but they've already stated in the past that they want to play some hockey back in Sweden before they full retire from the sport. I can imagine them playing until maybe 34 here in N.A and then a few years back in Sweden.

My question is when they do retire do they both retire the same year or does one or the other stay for another season or 2? <_< I guess it depends on injuries in the end but I can't fathom the thought of one without the other.

Play in the NHL until they are 40 & then go back to Modo to play until they feel it's time to call it quits.

This is something I wonder, too. IN NHL12 they always retire in separate years. Real life, I'd say together.
I'm saying Aladeen a lot because http://forum.canucks...dpost__10922428

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

they will never retire it will end up being a challenge between them. one will not retire without the other and neither will want to be the one to say its time to retire (a pride thing).

but i say as long as they are happy playing in Van they will play into there 40's
