After this shortenened season, the Sedins' contracts only have one more year left. Obviously the Canucks will re-sign them but for how much.

Should they received more than what they're currently making because of what they've achieved during their current contracts? Roughly the same? Less because they are entering their mid-30's and you have to factor in the potential for some decline?

Do their next contracts all depend on what they do this season and next? Should it be year by year from there on out or a multi-year? I remember reading comments by the Sedins that they would take it year by year after their current contracts run out. Does anybody else remember that?

I love the Sedins and I don't want them to go.

There's no point in them signing for a discount in their prime if they're gonna take more later on to make up for it. It's not like they're sacrificing much, except maybe a private jet.

I would think along the lines of a reduction in $ equal to any reduction in point totals. 3 years sounds good followed by a year or 2 after if they're up for it.

The next one definitely won't be year-by-year. I see a contract going for similar to what they make now, but up to 39 years old.

I'd say their next contract depends on if they win us a Stanley cup. If they can't help win us one on in the next couple years then we need to look into the possibility of a new first line.

Sedins will likely sign 6 year $33 million contracts.

When their next contracts start Sedin twins will have turned 34. (September 2014)

I expect them to sign 6 year front loaded contracts, keeping in mind the variance rule. I don't think Sedins will play past 39 so they pbbly won't play out the 6th year.

Remember the cap - benefit recapture rule only applies to contracts 7 + years in length.

Honestly, And i know im nuts but maybe MG can convince them to sign 1 year x 3-4M contracts so we can have room to add a huge piece... They might buy into it for a season to really go for a cup..

Maybe I'm just crazy as well..

I anticipate them both dropping to $5 million each for like 4-5 years and then we go from there.

I'm thinking it will be slightly less to about the same because of the cap and that they want to give the best chance to win a cup.

Win cup = more $

No cup = same salary (within 1M)

I dont think they're gonna sign a 6 year contract no matter how much money they get. They will sign a 4 year contract at the most couse they want to end their career in sweden.

I think they'll the re-up for 3-4 more years at the same cap hit, and after that move back to Sweden.

Let Canucks management know you want King Richard Brodeur in the Ring of Honour with no further delay! He's been retired for 25 years!

Why would wanting to end their career in Sweden mean a 4 year contract at the most?

They can end their career in Sweden any time once they don't have NHL game anymore, like Markus Naslund.

I doubt they will head over to Sweden while they're still working their way toward the NHL Hall of Fame.

If Trevor Linden were from Sweden, he would have gone back after his last year here when he was benched half the season, not while he was still an everyday player. An NHL 50-gamer is still way way way above average in the SEL.

You have to really try and predict their production which is tricky considering the fact that they're probably the two best conditioned players in the league and very similar to Lidstrom.

I can see them scoring at a point-per-game or above for the next 2 seasons (including this one) then a drop to maybe 50-60 points which would make them worth about 5 million.

4 years, 5 mil.

Four years / 5 mil then if they have the legs will sign 1 yr's following. Gillis won't want to sign them to 5 years but will if he has to, and I doubt they want to sign that long, think they'd rather see where they are at when they are 38.

Just another reason we really need to get some offensive youth in the system via trade or draft this year. Window for these two guys to tutor is closing. The value they would bring to a potential young star is immeasurable, much how Linden did for them.

Only thing they must do, is retire as Nucks, unless of course we are so bad by then they are traded at a deadline like rentals for their chance at a cup if we haven't got one by then.

3 or 4 years at the present salary. Then annual discussions. They are the backbone of our team.

I say 4 years at $5M per, just like Eddie. The Sedins are the nucleus of the Canucks. Not re-signing them would be a huge mistake. I can't even imagine the Canucks without the Twins. They are the faces of the franchise.

If the Sedins sign a multi year contract you have to project how much you're going to need to sign the up and coming prospects. Tenev, Jensen, Gaunce Corrado Lack etc etc and of course Schneider I believe is on a 3 year deal...you don't want to loose them due to lack of Cap space. So there's more to it than wild stabs in the dark.

I'm sure they have spread sheets with multiple options

If they win the Cup, potentially a 4-5 year contract with a pay raise, but if not, probably the same amount
