The Sedins are synonymous with the Vancouver Canucks.

They grew up in Vancouver and eventually became men here too. The twins developed as hockey players and raised their families in this city which is home.

On Thursday, September 11th, 2017, both Daniel and Henrik wrote a piece in The Players’ Tribune highlighting their current contract situation.

“When I think of Vancouver, I think about one thing: Home” says Daniel.

Many in Vancouver are well aware that both players are set to become unrestricted free agents following the 2017-2018 season. This complicates their future with the franchise.

“When I wake up in the morning, I still think we’re 26” says Henrik in the article.

“But obviously we are not 26. We’re 36. And with one year left on our contracts, many people are asking us what the future holds. When the time is right, we will sit down with management and discuss it” continues Daniel.

Not to mention, Daniel and Henrik Sedin hold almost every major Canucks team record.

Daniel has scored the most goals in franchise history (370). Henrik is the franchise leader in games played (1,248), assists (783) and points (1,020).

It would be a crime to trade the Sedin twins but with the Canucks current youth movement, they understand what can happen.

“We always believe in our team, but we’re not dumb. We understand how the NHL works and what it takes to be a Cup contending team”.
