Sedin Twins Want A Deal, Waiting On Canucks

VANCOUVER – Daniel and Henrik Sedin are off to superb starts to the 2013-14 NHL season, once again raising the subject of their expiring contracts and the fact they stand to become unrestricted free agents next July 1.

Their agent, J.P. Barry, was in Vancouver on Monday and met with the twins following the Canucks’ 3-2 win over Washington. Naturally Henrik was asked Tuesday about the contract talks and J.P’s presence.

“No news on that front,” said Henrik with a smile. “I just met him after the game and he’s flying to Calgary today. I think he’s just going around seeing his guys. Like I’ve said before, we’re not part of the negotiations. We’re playing hockey and I’m sure they’re going to come to us when they have news for us and they haven’t done that yet. So we’re going to continue to play hockey.”
