I don't believe it's all that tough of a situation for Vancouver. Negotiations have just started. There is no indication that the Canucks won't hammer out a deal sometime before this coming summer. Like I said earlier, the same panic insued over Jovo's contract last season and Burke got the job done.
How often are first offers accepted? This thread is an overreaction to the bargaining process.
PS The Sedins aren't getting any better? Bold statement. How many 23 year old players
get any better? There's a reason why a forward's prime is said to start at around 25/26.
I have watched the sedins many times. They have never really struck me as being an elite talent. They seem to be pretty good 3rd liners with a chance to turn into mike kean type players. Without guys like that, you don't win a cup. They will improve to be at least excellent excellent third liners. That isn't an insult to them except they were drafted as being bertuzzi type players.
I just have never seen first line skill when watching them. Just my opinion, feel free to disagree.
