I know they ain't playing well right now compared to the beginning of the season when they were on fire and healthy, but ya just need to give em some slack man, when healthy they are a awesome and deadly combo.
I hear ya, but I just don't think these are guys we should be building around going forward. Especially if we are at that point where it is time for us to start over. The Sedins will be 34 this year and they are our BEST assets for a trade. I used to think that it would be great to actually have a pair of star players that the Canucks drafted, developed, and then let retire as Canucks.....that was before they hit 34 years old and were given $28M contracts over 4 years. Gillis should have locked them up to 7 years on that last deal, they would have been going on 36 come end of contract in 2016, and the team could go through this re-tooling process with them locked up and being re-assessed at that point as to whether or not they would be worth extending and at what price.
I'm just afraid that we are at the point where it is time to start from scratch again, and I really don't want to see us go the way of Edmonton or Calgary. Especially Calgary who have nothing after Monahan in the prospect pool, and beyond Giordano and a few bottom 3 defensemen and bottom 9 forwards look pretty bleak at the NHL level.
