Sedins shine in the playoffs. They're not hurting the team so I say keep them. And yes they do seem to come as a set but that's b/c they're twins and have played together since childhood... they 'know' where the other is at all times.

As Matty mentioned on the 'Nucks board... give them a decent goal scorer between them or put them on the third line.

To quote Matty:

"I think the problem is really quite simple: the Canucks have relied upon the Sedins to carry an offensive line. But really, how many youngsters have that expectation heaped on them? A few yes - Gaborik, Thornton, Kovalchuk - but these are a special breed and no, the Sedins are not that type of impact youngster. But other solid young players usually have solid veteran scorers backing up their arses.

Let's be fair, the Sedins need to have a solid winger who can take the pressure off of them. King was a rookie, and it was unreasonable to assume that he could take on that role. Klatt, King...give the Sedins a real, bonafied, top six forward if you expect them to be a bonafied 2nd line! Or give them a 3rd/4th line player and expect them to be a 3rd line and stop the complaining."
