smokes Posted August 18, 2015 Share Posted August 18, 2015 I started this thread because the amount of people fans and media are beginning to write the Sedins off because he is getting older bothers me so much. The Sedins are only 34, Not comparing stats or anything but players like Lidstrom played at a high level for almost all of his career and he retired at 42. It is focusing too far into the future with talks of succession plans and retirement to make this fun anymore. I mean one or two articles is enough, lets focus more on the now. Iginla was written off by Calgary as too old and he ended up having good productive seasons on other teams and he is still doing it albiet looking as lost as Trevor Linden was when he was not in a Canucks uniform. As a Canucks fan, I hope to the higher being above me that I get to watch the Sedins in a Canucks uniform for as long Lidstrom, If the fans and the media focus more on how well they are playing at their ages and actually appreciate them. Daniel Sedin had 76 points last year, the most he has had since 2011. Henrik had 73 points last year, also the most since 2011. The Sedins are not showing any signs of decline at all. So to me this talk about retirement and succession plan is frustrating. P.S.- Some of strongest people who have no problem competing with younger players are also between 30-40.
