Captain Henrik Sedin is confident he and Daniel will sign new contracts with the Canucks sometime in the future. The soon to be 33-year-olds are entering the final year of their current deals.
Henrik is waiting for Daniel to return from Sweden.

The captain told Sportsnet, “I’m sure we are going to sit down and talk before training camp and see where we are. For us there is no rush. If things can get get done we’re more than happy, if not we’re happy to wait.”

Each Sedin will make $6.1 million this coming season, wrapping up five-year deals. Henrik added he and his brother want to stay in BC.

“There is no secret we like where we are, I think everyone knows that. For us to be able to have our family where we want them to be, that’s very important for us.”

Henrik led the Canucks in scoring in last years NHL lockout shortened season with 11 goals and 45 assists in all 48 games.

Daniel played a game less and was second in club scoring with a dozen goals and 28 assists.
This will be the 13th season for the twins in Canucks uniforms since being drafted in 1999 by the team.

While I think we all expected this, it's nice to hear they're looking to extend and play at least a few more years here. I welcome them back personally.

He's out for 6 months (which will hinder his development) and he really needs that development. There's already worries that he won't translate to the NHL and he'll end up a huge ass bust.

I think Gillis may want to wait and see what the cap is going to be at for next year before he signs them. That said I expect that he would sit down and at least talk about length and rough dollar figures.

Question is..... What will THEY ask for? If they both have Art Ross seasons, im sure their 6.1mil will be the floor. If they stay the same as the past 2 seasons, then ya.... I like a little lower or use as trade bait so the new blood can come in.

Not sure why they'd want to stay under Gillis. Treats his team with no respect and makes no gains despite constantly saying about "re-tooling"
.

Feaster is better than Gillis.

'Nucks for life. I hope all realize how special those two are. What we have experienced with the Sedins is more rare than a once in a lifetime occurrence. Most likely there will never be another a set of twins that are as talented as them who end up playing their entire careers together, and we got to see it. Call me selfish but I don't want to share it with other fans.

They are easily top 20 players yet they currently make ~ top 40 money.

I'd say a little pay raise just for inflation and respect is about right.

3 years, 20 million. They are not greedy and Gillis can live with it.

Good to hear.

MG could probably just give them each a blank cheque for them to choose the $ amount, and we'd still get great deals.

I am sure beyond sure that the both of them will sign for about $5 million+ knowing the cap is going up fast and that a 3-4 year term will see them through retirement.

Taking that paycut will show the youth coming in they're team players this is a team mentality and it will help the team bring in top end talent for them to play with. Every dollar helps.

I wonder if the the 35+ rule is a factor?

Signing a longer contract would be advantageous for both the Sedins and the team. Lifetime?

This rule states that if a player signs a multi-year deal when the player is 35 or older, starting in the second year of the contract, that amount will count towards the team's salary cap regardless of whether the player is on the active roster or not (unless the player is on long-term injured reserve); this provision remains in effect for the 2013 CBA. This is designed to keep teams from signing older players to lucrative front-loaded contracts, thus saving cap room, in which there is no expectation the player will actually play in the latter years.



edit - I see their Birthday is in Sept. (I checked both, forgot they were twins,duh). Theoretically means they could sign for just 1 year, then sign their multi-year contract by Sept. the following off-season.

The Sedin's are still elite level players. More importantly, the way they play, they will maintain a high level for years to come. While it would be nice if they signed for less then $6M, I just can't see that happening. On any other team, they would bank in anywhere between $7.5-$8M. Regardless of the amount, they will be re-signed. I'd be happy if they signed for even $7M, because that's still an underpayment for what they bring.

Depending on term, I could see them willing to accept closer to $5M for a longer deal, and $5.5 for a shorter one. I don't think they'll get raises as some are suggesting; they took a little less to help the team last time so I'm sure they'd take a little less than their actual value this time as well.

If they are declining - even by a little - then anything other than a short term deal would be risky at a higher $$. With the cap the way it is, I think the Sedins will be particularly aware of the need to not try and take more so they can help the team.

Many people are thinking much of the contracts now are overpriced by a fair amount. Remember, the Sedins couldn't use UFA signings as a comparable if it was an arbitration. They may even understand the way things have become overblown and chose a more fair value rather than going for a Getzlaf/Perry-esque deal (who were way overpaid imo).

Hopefully MG won't get JP Barry'ed like Murray did.

Henrik led the Canucks in scoring in last years NHL lockout shortened season with 11 goals and 45 assists in all 48 games.



JP Barry probably slipped news 1130 those stats. Pretty sure Hank didn't have as many points as Crosby last year.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Down by the River - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.

Actually, he had 45 points. 11 goals was right but he only had 34 assists.

4 years at $5-$5.5 million. With the cap most likely going up after this season I'm sure the Sedins will take another pay cut so Gillis can load up for 2014-15.

I 100% agree even though I am apparently delusional.

people forget they took less than they could have gotten during their last contract and a $5 million + contract for the both of them for the 3 or 4 years they said they would play is far from out of the question.

They are the epitomy of team player and would realize that any money left on the table means they can sign better guys to get over the hump.

But even though they've done this before I am delusional for thinking of it or agreeing to it.

I think Elvis has it right.

I see 2 years at 6 or with a slight raise at 6.5 to give the team breathing room (they are former Art Ross trophy winners after all). Gives the team cap flexibility and opportunity for both sides to re-visit after 2 years. Sedins said themselves they have no problem signing shorter contracts going forward, and given their personal and working relationship with MG and the organization, I think both sides trust and respect each other enough to continue making fair deals.

If they take a pay cut for less than 6million it will be after 2 years depending on how their seasons go.

I think they will take as much of a hometown discount as they did last time. I'd say the equivalent today would be about $5m per, for 3 or 4 years.

I could see them signing for 5-6.5 mil for 3 years, that cup window along with their careers are slowly closing so Im thinking they could be getting a little anxious on ending their careers with every trophy except the big one, these guys are class acts and seem to love Van city so i wouldnt be surprised

25 - 30 million over 5 years is what I'd guess.

Though if they're willing to be traded at the deadline for something stupid (4 firsts+) I'd give them 35 million over 5 years after that.

Feaster is better than Gillis.

At an eating contest...maybe. Feaster's main office is in Uncle Willy's, GMMG's is in the ivory tower. GMMG has put a competitive team together for years running while Feaster recycles old washed up hacks and bit players. There is no comparison and I can't believe you just made me defend Gillis.
