The Sedin's are loyal and are more interested in being a part of a contender rather than fading off into the sunset for a mediocre team.

I guess MG could have tried for a 5-6 year deal with the last two years being at 5 million to try and lower the cap hit but I think if we have the twins for four more years at the level they are at now we are blessed. Would have hated to have 2 add on years as an anchor.
Good deal for both sides. I'd say in the absence of rebuilding the core over the next four years we have a definite window now. MG has this core pretty well locked up for that time period. His biggest challenge now is to start getting players into the system to keep us competitive and begin the slow transition of life without the twin.
Gives the younger players a very clear window of opportunity now.

The team may prove to be one of the elites (hopefully) however at the time of the signing, it's no sure bet. Amazing loyalty shown by the Sedins yet again.
