TSN’s Darren Dreger reports the twins met with Canucks management on Friday. While neither side exchanged offers, Dreger reports the discussion was good and that’s a great sign for Canucks fans.
The Sedins have been Vancouver’s one-two punch offensively for the past 12 seasons and the thought of seeing them pack up and head elsewhere should be enough to scare GM Mike Gillis into making matching deals for the two of them.
The pair are coming to the end of matching five-year, $30.5 million deals and the main question Gillis will have to get answered is just how much to pay the both of them to, presumably, keep them Canucks for life. That doesn’t exactly put him in an enviable position even with the salary cap expected to jump next summer.
