from Matt Higgins of the New York Times,
One wears No. 22, the other No. 33. One has 394 career points, the other 393. The similarities can seem endless between the identical twins and Vancouver Canucks linemates Daniel and Henrik Sedin.
Even their contracts have been the same during their eight-year N.H.L. careers, a trend that Vancouver’s first-year general manager, Mike Gillis, would like to continue by re-signing them before they become unrestricted free agents in July.
“That is clearly a completely different dynamic than an individual player,” Gillis said about dealing with hockey’s most enduring one-two combination as a single entity. “However, because they are so highly thought of, it does not present any issue whatsoever.”
