If anything I say they are more similar now, than before. Daniel was touted as a sniper prospect, but he now seems to be a little of both .. while Henrik is still a playmaker.

Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin
96/97: 26 goals - 14 goals
97/98: 4 goals - 1 goal
98/99: 21 goals - 12 goals
99/00: 16 goals - 9 goals
Yes, but that's more because Daniel plays wing than that he would actually be a lot better at scoring.

These guys are overall equally talented/skilled, it's just that one was put on wing and one as a center in the beginning of time... for practical reasons You can't make an argument about who of them is better, or who will play in the 1st/2nd line and who will not.

Bottom line: If Daniel is a potential 1st liner in the NHL, then Henrik is too!
