from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Imagine the surprise of J.P. Barry, the agent for the Sedin twins, when he hopped on a plane headed to Stockholm on Sunday evening and saw none other than Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis on the same flight.
Surprise because the agent figured talks were likely dead after a weekend meeting in Montreal that didn’t produce anything. Barry arrived in Stockholm on Monday to prepare his star clients for free agency.
“We met at the draft with [Gillis], there was no counter-proposal and we basically wished each other good luck,” Barry told ESPN.com on Monday from Sweden. “It was like, ‘Call me if you want to.’”...
n Stockholm, Barry and CAA Sports Stockholm-based agent Claes Elefalk were set to meet with the twins later Monday.
“We’ll discuss the state of our negotiations and also our preparation for free agency at the same time,” Barry said.
