Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,
If Vancouver’s Sedin brothers, Henrik and Daniel, hit the free agent market in July with their names on the Cup as conquering Canucks, imagine the score they’ll make at the pay window.
Los Angeles and Toronto will be just two of the clubs with enough cap room and interest to woo the talented Swedish forwards. Montreal, with the league’s most available cash, also could be enticed. Ah, two Sedins and one Celine, how lyrical.
Their deal in Vancouver paid each of the Sedins $3.75 million this season. They easily will average upward of $6 million each on their next contract, and given that they won’t turn 29 until September, they might persuade someone to cough up, say, $90 million over six years, averaging out to $7.5 million per Sedin.
