As we all know the Sedins' contracts of 6.1M a season expires after the 2013-2014 season, on the verge of turning 34 years old.

At this point a few things will have happened:
- Both Sedins will have played 13 seasons in the NHL, all with the Vancouver Canucks.
- Both Sedins will more than likely be 1st and 2nd in franchise scoring.
- Both Sedins will more than likely be 2nd and 3rd in franchise games played.
- Both Sedins will continue to be 1st and 2nd in Assists for the franchise.
- Daniel Sedin will possibly be 1st in goals scored for the franchise, as well as 1st in PP goals.

So with all of these accolades acquired along with several individual awards each, and a desire to both retire Canucks, and finish their careers with MODO in Sweden, do you believe that the Sedins will retire regardless of a Stanley Cup win or not?

Do you think they have a multi-year contract in mind to continue playing in the NHL? Or do you think they possibly sign a 1 year deal?

Edit: For the argument of placing all relevant possibilities in the poll, I added the Sedins going to another team.

2 year deal for cheap because they want to win the cup. By this time Gaunce Jensen Connoughton Schroder and Kassian will all be ripping up the NHL.

They'll sign a multi year contract and end their careers with the canuck they'll then turn into coaches for modo and then they'll groom the number 30th pick in the draft who could go into the canucks hands surpassing the sedins.

Exactly, to think that these two wont make the NHL is ridiculous. Yes maybe Schroeder is debatable due to his lack of size, but the other 4 listed are locks for the NHL eventually.

They'll probably stick around until their late 30's, and finish their career with a year or 2 for MoDo.

I think they'll sign a two or three year extension and then retire once that's up, unless one of them gets a career-ending injury...then the other one will retire

I'm thinking they'll play till they are 38. So I'm thinking a 4 year deal at about 4.5 mil (Cap hit depends on the Lockout.) They'll retire as Canucks and will be 1st line players for another 4-5 years.

Dont underestimate Schroeder the guys talent was top 5 in his draft.So after Tavares,E.Kane,Hedman and Duchene. Schroeder will be our be if not first then 2nd best player when Sedins retire.

they'll ink a two-three year heavily front-loaded (if allowed under new cba) contract. they'll play those years out and retire as canucks. both jerseys will be raised to the rafters and a feeling of overwhelming joy yet bitter sadness will engulf the canucks faithful. the only caveat will be the fact the two jerseys will share the same airspace as the two stanley cup banners they helped bring to vancouver.

They'll stay with the Canucks. Maybe a short 2 year deal to start off then (like Linden did) continue to sign 1 year deals until they decide it is time to call it a day (or they give the Vancouver the cup they deserve ;) )

Money will not be an issue as $6.1M is already a great deal/steal for us. They'll obviously take less as time passes and they are slowly declining in their offensive skills....

Games played is now
Linden 1138
Smyl 896
Naslund 894
Henrik 892
Daniel 859

3 full seasons of 82 games ties Henrik with Linden. Daniel is 33 games behind. 4 seasons, and they surpass Linden. They tend to stay healthy so 75+ games per season (really or more) is not at all out of reality

Very probable they will be 1&2 in games played, with Linden holding 3rd for a long time to come.

Hope Kassian develops quickly enough to dominate with them while they're still at their peak, or they get it done with Burr prior to them moving on. Would love nothing more than if they were able to win it all in their last season.

OP is saying that at the end of their current contracts they will be 2&3, not 4 or more seasons from now

edit: @ OP, they have stated numerous times that they love the city and they consider it their home (as well as their families'). I have a hard time believing they will do anything other than signing with the Canucks again

The Sedins will still be improving when they are 34 years old, and still improving when their next contract after that is expiring.
They are immortal.
