from Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun,
The Vancouver Canucks plan to start contract talks with twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin in the next week or two, assistant GM Laurence Gilman said Wednesday.
“We have a few weeks remaining between now and July 1 and we anticipate that we’ll be speaking with them shortly,” Gilman said from Winnipeg after he scouted the Manitoba Moose playoff game Tuesday night. “I would say we’re going to begin negotiations with them in the next week to two weeks.”
Asked if the team intended to wrap things up prior to the June 26-27 entry draft, Gilman could not offer any guarantees.
“Ideally we would,” he replied. “If we’re going to get them done, we’d like to get them done sooner rather than later. But it is conceivable that we’ll get to the draft and they’re not done — and it could go down to the wire.”
