What To Pay The Sedin Brothers?

via TSN,

Contract negotiations between Henrik and Daniel Sedin and the Vancouver Canucks are set to begin on Thursday.

TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger says that the Sedin's agent, J.P. Barry, will meet with Canucks management and that as of yet, no offer has been made on an extension.

The brothers are each due to earn $6.1 million this year in the final season of their five-year, $30.5 million contracts. Both are eligible to become unrestricted free agents next summer unless they are signed to new deals.

Henrik Sedin had 11 goals and 34 assists in 48 games for the Canucks last season. Daniel Sedin had 12 goals and 28 assists in 47 games.

The twins turn 33 on September 26.

I've read a few quotes from the Sedin brothers today and they hope this would be their final contract, so they may be looking for anything between 5-7 years.
