I'm concerned what happens if there is a lockout. The Sedins said they might not play at all if that happens (can't find a source now but it was in Swedish newspaper) and we all saw what happened with Naslund. They are about the same age now too as Naslund was back then and while they are different style of players, taking a year off from hockey in general can be devastating (as was seen with Naslund).

Needless to say that when these guys decline or quit, whether that happens in 5 years or next year, losing 2/3 of your first line, including one of the best first line centers in the league, will be a huge blow.
