Canucks Re-Sign the Sedins for Five Years

The Vancouver Canucks have re-signed Daniel and Henrik Sedin to 5 year contracts worth a reported $6.1m per year. The deals also include no-movement clauses.

Throughout the year it seemed logical that a deal would get done at somewhere between 5 and 6 million over 3 to 5 years, I just didn't expect talks to go down to the last minute. First thoughts on the deal are that it's is for slightly more money than I would like, but not much. The no movement clause is a little disappointing, but if that's what it took to bring the cap hit down... you gotta do what you gotta do.

More to come as the day progresses...
