If the Sedin's aren't producing, they're highly ineffective. I'd be cautious to extend them beyond a year for each signing. I'd say give them whatever they want salary wise, assuming they're still performing, but don't give them term, not for a 35+ deal.


They will be 34.

And with the 35+ contract thing maybe it is better we lock them up.

I cannot imagine the Canucks without the Sedins, they have always been here since i started watching hockey in 2002, Its going to feel different when their gone. This also contributes to a lot of other players at the same age of the Sedins.

2 year deals 4-4.5 million.. Would be ideal. Swedish players never seem to be greedy for the most part and i don't see the Sedins having a problem taking a pay cut for the better good of this team.

By that time, they'll still be effective at 4-4.5/yr, if not even at 5M/year.

They should retire here, most likely they will take a little pay cut too.

4 years @ $4M/per

at 34 giving them a semi long contract for a reduced cap hit would be sweet, cause they can just retire if they fall off and we're good to go!

The Sedins have already 'took one for the team'. Dont you remember the years of them signed at $3.5m... best deal in hockey

It's too hard to speculate at this given moment, who knows what the cap will be at... will injuries play a part? Realistically they will try and sign for a fair deal given if MG is still at the helm which i see no reason why he won't but i'd say they would stay at a bit of a discount.


Side note: Even at their own admission they aren't playing to the top of their game, Kes and booth have been out we're still ranked in number 4 spot in the power rankings


*Vancouver Canucks: The Canucks are scoring 2.82 goals per game without Ryan Kesler, a minimal drop-off from their 2.94 per game last season. A big reason is the offense coming from the blue line -- Canucks defensemen have eight goals in 11 games after scoring 40 in 82 games last season*


Yes i'd be willing to admit we haven't played to many of the top teams in the league too much this season as yet so i wouldn't give too much merit to the ranking BUT it's still cool to see since it could be a lot worse.


Hopefully though MG will pull off a trade that will net us a cpl of bigger skilled players that would certainly put us over the top but who knows... anything can happen...

They play such a smart style, it's not going to be a case of them not being able to skate at some point. They're going to be very effective for several more years. Hopefully we'll get another discount, somewhere around 5 mill would be beautiful.

Me as GM.....How long: five years....how much....whatever the market bares minus 10% hometown discount....what role....1st or 2nd line players and mentoring the young players which they are doing now.

GM MG---I think it will be less than this...expect tension between both camps similar to Edler but they'll get something done. The Sedins want to stay and will compromise on money and Gillis will compromise on term because, if the Sedins leave prematurely, he'll be run out of town by the fans.

I can't see a deal less than 5-6 per, unless the salary cap makes it impossible with the players already signed beyond 2014.

But 3-4 per year.......thats like spitting in their face. :picard:

They deserve at least 5 mil each. Many other players have played the free agency market and got more and produced much less. Anytime a player admits they want to stay with thier current team and not even try free agency, wins all my respect. Even if they never bring a cup to this city, we are very lucky to have them.

Don't think the Sedins would do that.

And remember that any future contracts would be subject to the 35+ provision.

I'd like to see them sign a nice 4 year contract since it wont be a 35+ contract but I expect them to sign a 2 year deal with 1 year deals after that.

I have no problem if they get 6.1M a year again but I bet they will sign somewhere around 5.5M/yr

3 million each for a sedin? We should be paying them 7+8 mil right now. Show some respect


Please, I'm probably the biggest Sedin fan there is, I'm just being realistic here. This season they're a step below a point-per-game, and could end up being 60 point players next season. By the time they have to sign a contract they'll be 2nd line players scoring around 40-60 points.

The last few seasons they were worth around 8-9 million, but this season they're playing like 6 million dollar players. If their play continues this way they'll deserve 4 million as 40-60 point producers.

It's not about showing them respect at all, it's about valuing their play correctly. If contracts were written up based on how much a team respected their players then these guys would be getting 10 million. It all depends on these next couple of seasons - if they can get back to playing at a point per game I have no problem with handing them 5-6 million a year for a few seasons. However, that's not the case right now, they're both playing at around a 60-70 point pace now and that could drop off further next year.

They deserve to retire as Canucks that's for sure.

The Sedins have been relatively healthy their whole careers (knock on wood) and they are still producing quite well. At the same time, after 2014 it will be time to give others a chance to be the go-to offensive producers of the team. If they are still putting up 80+ points though, it'll be hard to ease anyone else into that role. A lot of it depends on their capabilities as they age and also how well they are able to perform in the playoffs, but it would be great to have them still being the leaders of the team.

So the question is: how much, how long a contract, and in what role?


Who do you see putting up 80+ points?

Kesler is not a passer. He would need players to compliment him. I don't see him putting up 80 points without playing with the right type or players. He's more of the best two way Center the canucks have.

If they would agree to it, Id take it year by year. I cant see them taking less then what they already make, with what they contribute to the community, and how theyve been underpaid for their services.

I'll predict identical 3 year - 18.3M.

I'd say that they should be able to do what guys like Elias and Jagr are doing respectively as long as they keep making smart plays, not get injured (both those Czechs also rely on smarts to make plays with finesse, not to mention obvious skill, to prolong their careers to this point) and have an effective finisher/ space-opener in front of the net with whom to work. I wouldn't be surprised if their strong play lasts until then if they remain physically fit. Besides, they're only 32 whereas Jagr's 40, Elias is 36 himself and Selanne's still tearing it up as well at 42! If these Euro superstar vets can do it, why can't the Twins?

EDIT: Money-wise I'd say around $5M (or they'll take hometown discounts to stay. I can't imagine them in another jersey, and I really hope they'll be like Lidstrom in that they stick with one team for their entire careers).

2 year deals 4-4.5 million.. Would be ideal. Swedish players never seem to be greedy for the most part and i don't see the Sedins having a problem taking a pay cut for the better good of this team.



Why would the Sedin's need to take a paycut ? They will still be worth 6m+ per season when the current contract's runs out. It's one thing as a fan to assume a certain demographic of athlete is " not greedy ", say like Nicklas Lidstrom, but you don't insult franchise-type players by lowballing or offering less then previous to them either. The Sedins are respected and the Cancuks would not pull the " paycut " crap on them nor does the team need that.
