07:33 AM ET 09.09 | This year, the contracts of Daniel and Henrik Sedin may steal a few headlines from that of Roberto Luongo, and it seems talks with the Cancucks are underway. As first reported by TSN, the Swedish twins met with the Canucks before the weekend ahead of their final season under contract on the west coast. The Sedins are both heading into the final year of twin five-year, $30.5 million deals signed ahead of the 2009-10 season. While talks between the Sedins and Vancouver's front office were reportedly positive, no offers were made as the team looks to avoid having their franchise players enter free agency after the season. The Sedins have spent 12 seasons -- their entire NHL careers -- in Vancouver. They've combined to register 473 goals and 1,550 points.

I haven't really followed the Sedin sisters career, but according to this article the two of them scored 473 goals over 12 years. The breaks down to roughly 20 goals a year for the last 12 years.

I'm assuming that they are going to be looking for more money, but I think $6 mil a year is more than fair for 20 goal scorers.

Everytime I see that picture of Danrick I think of Full Metal Jacket where the Sgt Hartmann is asking Joker to show him his war face "Grrrrr!!!"
