Contract Talk- Daniel & Henrik Sedin

from Canucks Nation at the Vancouver Province,

According a to a published report, the twins are seeking identical five-year deals that average $6.5 million US a year. Meanwhile the Canucks have offered $5.5 million US over three or four years.  These numbers shouldn’t shock anyone especially given some context. For starters it’s a negotiation so each side is seeking a deal that best suits its interests.  Given that, there is still room to meet somewhere in the middle, which is about what everyone expected, to get a deal done.

“There’s still several months before July so I’m not terribly concerned,” Barry said. “Based on our discussions, they want them to stay and they want to stay. We’ll just have to keep working.”

Barry would not confirm or deny the figures but said:  “As far as I can see from those numbers, that’s about a million apart and any other way to take is funny math as far as I’m concerned.”
