surprised not to see this posted already...

While the NHLPA fights for the players’ right to sign a contract longer than five years, Canucks forward Daniel Sedin admits that he and his twin brother, Henrik, may commit one year at a time once their current deal runs out at the end of the 2013-14 season.

“We’re already taking it year by year right now,” Daniel said this week, as per The Province. “We have a year and a half on this current contract and then mentally I think it will be easier if we go year by year after that.

“Mentally, when you get to this age, to be able to perform, you have to be there. I really believe if you sign a long term deal it will be tougher to perform on a nightly basis.”

The Sedins turned 32 in September. In 2011-12, the top eight scorers in the NHL were all under 30.
For Vancouver, the Sedins on year-to-year deals would probably be a good thing. As long as the Canucks are Stanley Cup contenders, the twins will almost certainly want to stay with the organization that drafted them and in the community in which they’ve become so involved. It’s hard to picture a scenario where the amount of annual salary comes between the two sides.

If on the other hand Vancouver falls out of contention, the club may not want to dedicate a significant amount of cap space to a couple of aging stars that, in turn, may wish to pursue their Cup dreams with a team that could actually make those dreams come true.

One thing’s for certain: the Canucks’ current core doesn’t have many seasons left to win the franchise’s first championship.

As it stands, Vancouver doesn’t have a single major contributor under 26 years old – not surprising given the club’s regular-season success that’s negated its ability to stock up on elite prospects at the draft.

In fact, the Canucks haven’t had a draft pick from 1-9 since they selected the Sedins No. 2 and No. 3 in 1999.

It will be a very sad day when the Sedins retire.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

I have no problem with this, they wouldn't want to play anywhere else other than Vancouver anyways.

I think this is a good idea, it will keep them playing at there best longer, and they won't want to leave unless some unforeseen disaster happens so it should be a good thing.

They'll probably sign a 3 year deal minimum if they have a big year next season.

Shows these guys arent about the money (nor should anyone of assumed before, as they've donated generously, taken discounts, ect.)

So many stars sign those mega deals, in fact demand them or else threaten to leave.

Sounds like they have already thrown in the towel, mentally speaking. Trade em for picks I say.

Interesting, they're still young IMO. I'm sure, in some senses, that makes Gilis nervous. Not knowing yr after yr if they'll be back, tough way to build a long term plan. Either way, they're my 2 favorite people in hockey, want them wearing Orcas for a long time.

Hopefully we can get Kassian, Schroeder, Jensen and Gaunce moving before the Sedins decide to leave, otherwise we'll be in the basement for a while.

How can someone hate the Sedins. They are the classiest guys I've ever seen besides Sami Salo..

As long as they stay with the Canucks the entire time they are in the NHL, I'm happy....

Without them, the Canucks are just the Flames with a better defense.

I hope they do take it year by year and when they can no longer perform a first line role retire. Return to Sweden as hero's and play for Modo while they can still really tear it up. Mentor a bunch of young swedes that the canucks could then draft :bigblush: . That is what i would do.

The best thing for the Canucks to do is trade them for a boatload of elite prospects before they expire. If Luongo didn't crap the bed 2 years ago and the twins got their cup, this would have been the best time to unload them.

Anyways, give em one more year to try for the cup. Then invest on top 5 picks by using the valuable twins as trade bait.

It could be a good thing because they won't know if they will play the next season and give all their effort to make sure their "last" NHL season is a success.

Somebody would have to have a brain the size of a walnut if they think the Canucks will trade the Sedins.

Scratch that. They'd actually have to have no brain at all to think something that absurd.

I don't see the Sedins playing for anyone else but us, however, I think most would feel more comfortable if they signed a 3 year contract.
...and the thought of the Sedins retiring is absurd!

I think that's fair. At a certain point there has to be some caution in signing long-term deals. I was not a fan of the length of Luongo's deal at all. By year 6 or 7 who knows how his body will be doing and how his mindset will have changed. No use being tied down to a contract.

It's really sad with the Sedins - potentially losing two full seasons of hockey due to the lockout. Their windows of peak-performance play are fading fast.

I hope they retire here though. No bullcrap like with Naslund - sign for one year somewhere else and then retire. Let them do it here as Canucks. It's the only thing that fits.

The day the Sedins aren't in Canuck uniforms anymore is the day that the Canucks will start rebuilding for the next five or so odd years... Hopefully by then, we wouldn't be like the Flames and have a good enough prospect pool within those five years to be able to supplement the loss of our star players
