VAN resign Sedin twins

Sedins sign on for one more year

The Sedin twins are staying with the team that drafted them.

Sportsnet.ca -- The Vancouver Canucks will be seeing double for at least one more year.

The Team 1040 radio station is reporting the Sedin twins have signed a one-year deal with the club.

The twins' agent, J.P. barry told the radio station that a one-year deal was the best situation right now for both his clients and the team. both brothers signed on for the same deal, believed to be $1.3 million.

Solid deal. I would have given them a little bit more and tried to sign them long term. If they break out their value will sky rocket. with or without a salary cap.

so I guess they blinked first... Nonis was giving them the qualifier ($1.24), while they were asking for $1.75.

Good deal though for both sides... what they already bring to the lineup - $1.3 mill/yr is an excellent deal... but if they even duplicate the season they had last year, they should get another raise in their next contract, likely more than just the customary 10% qualifier increase.

The Canucks might get burned here though if they have a strong season... I would have also tried and tied them up on a multiyear deal.

1.3 million is dirt cheap for the Sedins. Great deal for the Canucks.

1.3 Million is a great price to get them at, but like said many times before, if they have their breakthrough year this season, that price could skyrocket

If Nonis was smart, they'd be negotiating a long term deal with the Sedins agent right now...get them for aroudn 1.8-2 million for 4 years or so, but i'm doubtfull that the Sedins would bite on that.

I would much rather have got them at 1.7 or 1.8 a year for 3 years, but at least we have them signed.

I wonder if they'll ever play on different teams. Odds are they will have to at some point.

I agree with you, these guys are due for a 60-70 points seasons. Long terms deals are the way to go. Im thinking 2-3 years.

Is each one making the same $ amount per year?

This is great news considering that they were threatening to hold out and what not as I'm sure all of you know. I agree that it would've been nice to lock them up long term considering there's a decent chance they'll break out and have a big year. And I somehow doubt signing them is going to get any easier, so the longer the deal the better, but I suppose with the uncertainty of the CBA and also the fact that the Sedins probably are hoping to have a big year then cash in (and wanted a one year deal as a result), the one year deal was pretty hard to avoid. But whatever, it's good news we got them signed as they're very important to our team, now and in the future.

As much as people say their salaries could sky-rocket, I doubt it would be as high as you would think. The CBA should drastically lower high-end salary, and unless they are putting up league-leading numbers.....they would probably max at around the 2.5 - 3 million range, which if they truly do break out next season, is not bad at all.

This oddly enough reminds me of Martin Havlat last year. The Sens didn't want to give him more than what he got, and he finally collapsed on a one year deal, and then scored at a PPG rate. The Sens must be kicking themselves for that one.

Very, very true. There's no way of knowing for certain what the new CBA could do, but it's pretty certain that salaries will not climb as much as they used to. You're also quite correct in saying that they probably would max out in that range, and that is quite reasonable for them. In other words, good post.
