To the disappointment of Örnsköldsvik hockey fans and presumably Modo General Manager and former Canucks captain Markus Naslund, the Sedin twins have decided that they probably won't play in the SEL next season in the event of a lockout.


Read past the jump.


That's according to Daniel Sedin who is quoted by Swedish sports media site Nyheter24 as saying that not only will the twins not play in the SEL next season (in the event of a lockout), but they may not play professional hockey at all if there is an NHL lockout. Here's a translation (it's an amalgamation of google translate and some direct translation from Expressen's Jonatan Lindquist):


"We'll go over [to Vancouver]. We have children who go to school so we'll see what happens. It will be clearer when the season is about to start, how long the lockout will be if there is one. But we have decided to go over and be there."

On playing with Modo:

"No. Or, of course it depends a lot on how long the lockout will be, but we will at least start the season over there."

Would they take a full season off if there is a lockout:

"Absolutely, we see no problem with that. We can keep on working out and practicing anyway."


In order to earn a cheque while the owners and the Players Association square off, NHLers have quickly filled up European hockey rosters during NHL work stoppages in the past. Already in the Swedish press,there are breathless reports of Henrik Lundqvist Erik Karlsson and Loui Erikkson teaming up to play for Frölunda, for example.


The twins have racked up a lot of mileage, and in Daniel's case some concerning injuries (a back ailment, in addition to a concussion) over the past few seasons. In addition to the abuse they take from the opposition on a game-to-game basis, both twins are very committed to fitness so it's realistic that some extended down time away from professional hockey could even prove useful to them in the medium term.


On the other hand, part of the reason that Henrik Sedin hasn't missed a regular season game in nearly a decade, is that the twins are well-known for being addicted to playing hockey. By all accounts the twins love to compete, love the grind and are loathe to miss any games. In the event of a lockout, I wouldn't be concerned about them getting rusty because of time-off, but I'm kind of skeptical about their ability to actually step away from the game for that long!


Let's hope this is all for naught, and that the NHL and the NHLPA manage to hammer out a deal at some point in the next couple of months. The twins play the game so beautifully that, for the hockey world to be deprived of their skillful passing exhibitions for an entire season... Well, it seems almost cruel.

It's a blog quoting a blog. He didn't explicitly say he'd take the year off or not go to MoDo, just that he would be here for the start of the season and would continue to practice. I'm not worried about what two questionable sources made of an off hand quote.

Agreed. Their kids are at an age where they probably have friends here and it'd be quite the adjustment to put them into school back in Sweden only to pull them out once the lockout ended.

And there are plenty of opportunities for them to stay in shape here. They can practice with the Giants, maybe run some hockey camps, and of course, they can practice with the rest of the players who will be here as well.

I see this as a tactic against Bettman, and I hope others follow as well. If lots of the superstars sit out, suddenly games are much more boring when the season finally begins, therefore losing Bettman lots of money because people just aren't interested.

Bettman is a complete idiot. It's sickening that we're about to have 2 lockouts within the last 10 years.

I think you misunderstand. He didn't say they were planning to sit out if there was any lockout, only sit out as long as the lockout ran. If it took up the entire season, they would sit out the entire season.

From what you said, it sounds like you think if they miss 2 months because of lockout they plan to sit out for the rest of the year... I doubt that's the case.

I think it's a smart move if there is a lockout, Daniel will have more time to fully recover from his concussion (the more time the better) and Henrik could use the rest as well.

True, South Park has actually made fun of Family Guy for being random a couple of times.

WTF are you talking about? If superstars decide not to play in Europe, why do you think this is of any concern at all to Bettman and the owners? They'll probably be happy if the players don't play - no chance of injury, and no paycheque coming in might quicken a settlement.

I see an opportunity for a smaller market cable sports channel to sign a deal with the SEL to televise games in North America, or even just Canada...NHL'ers on Frolunda and Modo battling it out? I wanna watch, specially if there is no Canucks on tv

All this is, is money, and the greed that comes with it. ???? god damn Bettman and his bull that continually and annually spews out his ass. If there is a lockout that is going to be complete bogus.
