The Canucks have been somewhat unpredictable in the past couple years, but for those believed the Sedins might get traded soon, rest assured, they’re here to stay.

In an interview on TSN Radio Vancouver with Jake & Dave, GM Jim Benning discuss the future of the Sedin-twins.

Benning describes Henrik and Daniel as fine wine, “they get better with age” he says. And as far as he is concerned the dynamic duo will retire as Canucks.  In the interview he also confirmed that he is taking trade calls but is reluctant to give up any top-end youngsters.

Benning was formally introduced as the General Manager of the Vancouver Canucks in May of 2014. Since then he made several changes to the roster to retool and build the team: traded forward Ryan Kesler to the Anaheim Ducks, signed goaltender Ryan Miller, acquired Nick Bonino, Linden Vey, Radim Vrbata and Derek Dorsett.

Other moves proved to be more unpopular like dealing away beloved goaltender Eddie Lack for two draft picks and signing Brandon Sutter to a five-year extension.
