Sedin twins share their potential lockout plans

Dennis Bernstein passes along Expressen.se’s report that Henrik and Daniel Sedin plan on staying in Vancouver in the event of a lockout – under most circumstances.

One possibility that can change things, however, is if the entire season gets canceled.

In that case, the Sedin twins have reportedly been in talks with Swedish Elite League team MODO for a possible hockey-playing Plan B.

During the last lockout, players such as Joe Thornton and Rick Nash decided to ply their trades overseas, even without “roots” in a given league.

Some NBA players actually opted to play in foreign leagues even without a full season lost, in many cases arranging “out” clauses to allow them to return to the NBA once those talks were over.

Of course, right now these are just hypothetical discussions.

    Wouldn’t they want to take a break from each other? I I mean come on… If you have a chance to get a little alone time every now and then you should take it haha I love my brother but I couldn’t imagine playing on EVERY team together.

    Headline probably should have read “Hey trolls, click here”

    …Then again, I clicked here anyway.

    I can’t help but think Daniel is lifting off the ice to fly away to his homeland, all “I must go now! My planet needs me.”
