The Sedins what will they bring to the table this year

One of Brian Burke’s genious draft day moves.. possibly the best move a GM has pulled off on draft day ever. these guys along with Roberto Luongo will make the Canucks contenders for years to come. This being all said they have never played with a player expected to do huge things… my question is Why.. they have proven to be guys who make other players that play with them better even in there earlier years with guys like

Jason King: 13 goals earlier in his first season was looking like rookie of the year for a time granted hes gone nowhere since he was made a better player by these guys.

Anson Carter: seemed to be a washed up player when he came to the canucks player with these guys and got 33 goals in a season wow! and now look at him he hasnt done a hell of alot since what does that tell you about these guys.

Taylor Pyatt: Great season playing with the Sedins he is a great player and will continue to get better.

But this is my point.. these guys have never been given a fair shot with a natural born sniper.. and i know you will all say well what is Markus Naslund, Markus Naslund has proven he is a good player but he needs a big body to protect him when hes on the ice or he struggles his good season have all come when Todd Bertuzzi was playing along side him and this is why he never worked out with the Sedins.. the Sedins need a guy who is fast as young as they are and has a scoring touch… To throw out an example and by no means am i implying that this is reality… look at a guy like Nikolai Zherdev… if the canucks somehow swung a deal to bring him in and play him with the Sedins I belive that you would not only see the Zherdev’s number go to a new extreme level but you would see what the Sedin twins are truely capable off.. This could be a line that produces 3 100 point players

DAVE NONIS NEEDS TO FIND THESE GUYS A NATURAL BORN SCORER… if he does this I belive that the Canucks will be one of the toughest teams to beat this upcoming year… as for Pyatt he belongs on a line with Morrison and Naslund a solid second line for the Canucks

I await everyones thoughts?

    I've thought and said it for some time now, how about Joffrey Lupul or Trent Hunter.  Lupul = young gunner  Hunter = net presence
    To answer your question, I don't think there is any way that Vancouver wants Zherdev.  After finally getting rid of one bad seed in the dressing room (cough…cough…Bertuzzi) and getting a team atmosphere there is no way they will spoil that with Zherdev.

    The Canucks have signed LW Jason Jaffray to a 2-year (2-way deal), financial terms were not disclosed.

    Hopefully he will carry over the talent from the AHL the had last year while possibly playing with the Sedins

    ive skimmed through the free agents and ive come up with a few people who might fit the bill.. some of them not so young but they are a type of player im talking about here..

    Wishlist for the Sedins

    #1 Jason Blake: Perfect person to play with the Sedins right now he can score and hes fast hes the exact person we want with these guys.

    #2 Ladislav Nagy: Now i wasnt exactly impressed with him in the playoffs with Dallas but I do think he would be a good fit with the Sedins.. hes no jason blake but he would do for now.

    #3 Paul Kariya: now i know what you guys are thinking NO WAY! but i really wouldnt mind giving him a shot with the Sedins for a year and see what they do they could have some serious chemistry if given the chance.

    Those guys would all be very hard to land… so here is my most realistic player to go with these guys

    Kyle Calder: He would come much cheaper than the three above and hes the type of player that could break out and have a huge year.

     I agree it would be a good idea to bring him up to the team but I really hope Nonis can land a proven player in the NHL for the Sedins. Jaffray would be a good third line guy perhaps he would fit well with Ryan Shannon

    The only one I'm fond of in your list is Kariya.  Everyone knows he'd love to play in Vancouver, but aside from that he is a class act, a team player, and a true bonified sniper.
    Blake in my books is a one hit wonder.  I don't think he'll ever score 40 goals again, and I don't want to overpay a guy who will never produce numbers like that again.  He's a mid 20's kind of goal scorer even with the twins.  Also, I get the idea he's kind of a me first kind of guy. 
    Nagy is a little to much of a playmaker.  He is not the shot first kind of guy the Sedins need to set up…plus he plays too soft.
    Kalder would be a long shot, and he may even produce.  But like Blake, I think the most you'd get out of him is 22-28 goals a year and when you put someone with the twins you'd expect at lest the 33 goals that Carter scored two years back.
    Lupul and Hunter would be great fits for relatively cheap.  Kariya would be great on that line, but would come at a bit higher price.  Even with the home town discount your looking at $4 million a year.  Where as Lupul and Hunter would come in at around $2 – $2+ million a year.

    i think everything out of this article was blown out of proportion.  best draft day move ever? ok

    o the twins are the gayest move in hockey for sure.  brothers who have played with each other their whole lives including pro and look exacatly alike picked 2nd and third.  they may be good but for god sake's they use one picture for both of them.  henrik sedin to daniel sedin back to henrik… what dweebs

  8. jonnygf40 says:

    Totally forgot about a perfect fit but he's a RFA.  How about Michael Ryder.  Right handed shot.  Back to back 30 goal seasons….without the twins.  He would be a consistent 30-40 goal scorer on their line.
