Are The Sedin Twins Elite?

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

As they enter their, yikes, ninth season with the Canucks, Daniel and Henrik also appear to be entering the third phase of their careers. Their first, from their rookie campaign in 2000-01 to the lockout, were characterized by high hopes followed by middling production and a certain dissatisfaction with their level of play. In their second, which started in the post-lockout year and ended in 2008-09, the twins established themselves as under-rated, under-valued NHL frontliners who produced at a point-a-game clip.

Now, the question becomes, can they take the next step? Can they move into that rarefied place occupied by the NHL’s elite and which is reflected in their new deals. They took their first steps towards that club last year but to gain full membership they’re going to have to improve from the point-a-game pace to somewhere in the 90- to 100-point range.
