Let's be honest, the Sedins are getting older and aren't getting any better. While they'll still be very good players, they will no longer be amongst the elite players in the league. IMO, they have peaked. If we try to trade them as a package, we could get a TONNE back in return which would be like a quick re-build.

So, would you trade the Sedins next year if it looked like the Canucks weren't an elite team anymore and also considering they would be pending UFA's? Or would you re-sign them to another extension and try to keep adding pieces to this current core and still try to win?

I'm not against a re-buid at all. I don't think we are going to win with this current core. Especially considering salary cap implications nowadays, we need to get good young talent that is cheap financially. We cannot afford to keep signing old veteran players to big money contract, or else we will end up like Calgary.

EDIT: This is not a Sedin bashing. They are true professionals in every sense of the word, both on and off the ice. I'm a big fan of theirs both as players and as human beings and think they've been a treat to watch the last couple of years and we have been lucky to have them on our team. No doubt they will go down as 2 of the best Canucks ever. What I'm talking about is business and the future of this team. Use your heads and not your hearts

Never going to happen. They'd go as a package, and few teams can afford one player of their quality. I think we'll give them 2 years beyond the end of their current deal.

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.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

This is how all of you will react when the Sedins are here for too long and we will have won 0 cups with them. Then you'll all be saying "omg, we should've traded them when they were worth something"

No such thing as a quick rebuild.

And i have zero interest in subtracting offense.

Every season they have very brief slumps. You wait and see when they bust out again.

They will produce fine, these are two superstar players who have been with the Canucks franchise their entire careers.

You do not trade away franchise players such as the sedins. They are too close to the community and have done too much for the city to be traded away.

The Canucks would be silly to trade away the sedins while the rest of the roster is in it's prime. They could easily still help us win a cup in the upcoming couple of years, no doubt about it.

They are here to stay. I would bet my life on it.
