The Sedin twins are reportedly up for grabs, if this is the case, why not go for them. Matching Pierre Dorion’s comments that the time is now, the Sens should go all in.
This really isn’t rumours for rumour sake. I really like the Sedins, their work ethic and play. Yes they are ageing but they can still offer a team a bunch. Plus, imagine those two linking up with compatriot Erik Karlsson.

The captain, has an overwhelming 0.82 PPG in 1227 NHL games, recently notching his 1000th point against the Florida Panthers. Would suit the system given his unreal work ethic in his own zone. Also possessing a 0.74 PPG in the post-season.
Has never quite replicated 112 point season back in 2009-10. However, he is not done yet and still has a few years ahead of him.
You’d know they were twins by just looking at the stats sheet. Daniel has a 0.81 PPG average in 1204 NHL games. A 0.71 PPG in the playoffs also.
The two are so similar, and you inject two above 0.80 PPG players into your lineup and you are automatically a vastly better team.
Ok, you already know how good the Sedins but you’re hear because you want to know why on earth I think that the Sens should trade for them. Well, Vancouver are in debt to the Sens, I know they’re not, but they should be.
Throw a first rounder, a third rounder, Ceci and potentially White (given the controversy over College players). The Sedins have a no movement clause, therefore if this trade was to go ahead you’d imagine they’d have to had two years to the contracts. Potentially between $4-5 million for two years.
If this deal would give the Sens a feasible crack at the cup, rather than just making a couple of rounds.
