from David Ember of the Globe and Mail,
This is the last season of the five-year, $30.5-million (U.S.) deals that pay the Sedins $6.1-million each annually. While the players have previously expressed a desire to remain in Vancouver, and have said getting a deal done before the 2013-14 season starts would be good, the talks could be complicated. The last time the two sides bargained, it went down to the last moment before free agency.
Given the complexity, it’s possible a deal is not clinched in the next month – and then the question of the brothers’ future lingers around the club, not unlike the pulsing question of goaltending that coloured all of last season.
“There’s a lot of things that need to be discussed,” Henrik Sedin said after practice. “It’s money, it’s terms, it’s years, it’s a lot of different things. So I’m sure it’s not going to happen in one day, but we’ll see what happens.”
On wanting to stay, he said: “Of course.” But added: “If they want us here, I’m sure they’re going to show that.”
