Daniel Sedin Needs To Play In A Selfish Way

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

In the aftermath of the Vancouver Canucks’ win on Tuesday night, it was gently suggested to Henrik Sedin that it’s not necessarily a good thing he has almost as many goals as his brother.

The Canucks captain thought about this for a moment, nodded his head in the affirmative, then dissected Daniel’s slump as neatly as he dissects the opposition’s defence.

“He needs to play in a very un-Swedish way,” Henrik said.

Do you mean selfishly, his interrogator suggested.

“Exactly. That’s when he’s at his best. You saw after he scored that goal I was open but he faked a shot and went through his legs. It’s great to watch and it builds up the guys around him.

“When you’re a goal scorer and you don’t score goals, it’s tough. You saw after he scored he started to make plays the way he used to.”
