The Latest On The Contract Negotiations For The Sedin Twins

via Elliot Pap of the Vancouver Sun,

Canuck GM Mike Gillis made his weekly appearance on the team’s flagship radio station Team 1040 Wednesday morning and said term is not the issue in the stalled contract talks with the Sedin twins. Daniel and Henrik are playing on expiring contracts and stand to become unrestricted free agents July 1.

“No,” Gillis replied when asked if contract length was the key to a deal. “The process has been very respectful from both sides. We’re trying to figure out what the cap is going to be next year and the upcoming years and really that’s the key. Those guys have been fantastic people, No. 1, for this organization. They’ve been great players and it’s really a function of how you allocate money in a cap system and we’re just trying to ensure we do the right thing for the entire organization and for Daniel and Henrik.”

Asked if the talks might again go down to the July 1 deadline, as they did last time, Gillis said: “Right now, I can’t say but I don’t foresee that happening again. You never know but I don’t see it happening again.”
