The Canucks aren't really in a great position to be able to trade the Sedins. Even with them the Canucks need to add 3 top 6 forwards to their line-up, so if they are to move both for one player(Olli Jokinen was the rumour) they'd be in an even deeper hole. On top of that, both are one year away from UFA and although it likely wouldn't be too hard for any team to acquire them to get them to sign, it's still something that has to be considered.

Gillis has stated that he wants to employ a fast paced, aggressive, uptempo style and Gillis may not see them as good fits in that type of system, which is probably a pretty good assumption. I can see the Sedins fitting in very nicely on an Eastern Conference team where the play is more open and less aggressive.

I wonder if there are any teams out there in a position to offer up three top 6 forwards for the Sedins? Perhaps an option for the Canucks if they are looking to make a run at Hossa?
