Yes they have had ups and downs from series to series JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER FUCKING PLAYER OVER THE LAST FIFTY FUCKING YEARS. The difference between them and the PLAYERS THAT WIN THE FUCKING CUP is that those players actually get SOME FUCKING SCORING SUPPORT.
Yet you want to pay them as third line players . As Ron White says you can't fix stupid. Or perhaps you are trolling?? I get not wanting to build around them, so I'm all ears if you or anyone else can come up with a better option at their pricepoint.
It's hard to soar like an eagle when you have a bunch of penguins, grubby crows, filthy pigeons and vultures tugging at your wings.
All I read was blah blah blah blah blah. Excuse after excuse. I'm sick of the excuses. The Sedins as leaders aren't good enough. They eat up all of the offensive zone starts so one would expect their scoring production to make up for the lack of scoring production you will see from our secondary scorers who are primarily starting in the defensive zone. That hasn't happened.
Also, try looking at their stats without the 2011 SJ series outlier. Those playoffs in particular Henrik had 10 points in 20 games in the other 3 series combined, Daniel had 14 in 20. I won't bother to mention their +/- because it was shockingly bad.
Maybe if the captain of this team had bothered to show up for the STANLEY CUP FINALS and score MORE THAN ONE POINT in the entire series we would have a Cup. Hell all your precious "wonder twins" had to do was show up for game 7, put up a few points, win the game and then they'd be Cup champions, but they couldn't even do that.
I will never forgive the Sedins for their no-showing act of the 2011 Stanley Cup finals. It was an embarrassment watching them flop around on the ice. It was an embarrassment watching Daniel let a shrimp pop him in the face without doing a damn thing about it. It was an embarrassment watching them skate around and not do their damn jobs by putting the puck in the net. It was an embarrassment watching them get exposed defensively. Defend them all you want but this team will never win a Cup with the Sedins as the focal point of our offense.
