He..." October 10

  • Canucks, Vancouver lucky to have Sedins, hometown discount or not

    Vancouver Sun "It’s probably not a stretch to surmise that one of the things the Vancouver Canucks were eager to learn, when GM Mike Gillis interviewed candidates for the head coaching job over the summer, was what outsiders thought of the team. No one knows exactly what opinion the successful applicant gave,..." November 02

October 29

  • Sedins say split gives team some ‘spark’

    Vancouver Province "John Tortorella wouldn’t go there because it’s too early to blame the officials. Maybe a hint though.

  • Sedins aim to be complete players

    Vancouver Province "For years many believed the Sedin twins got their way with their last head coach. But that can’t be. They weren’t killing penalties. It all seems a little screwy at first.

  • Sedins struggle for signature moment must end for Canucks to win series

    Vancouver Province "There's a reason only three teams in NHL history have managed to scale a three-games-to-none gorge. It's onerous enough to win four in a row during the regular season.

March 24

  • Even against a Sedin, that's a suspension, Duncan

    Chicago Tribune "Duncan Keith is going to get suspended for drilling Daniel Sedin.

  • Slumping Sedins shoulder burden of Canucks' woes

    Vancouver Province "With Roberto Luongo, you can understand a rather extreme view of how an athlete should deal with the media. "Just don't say anything," he quipped.

December 16

  • Canucks' Sedin machine rolling smoothly again

    Vancouver Province "Here's how you know it's going well for the Vancouver Canucks. Henrik Sedin was making jokes about leading the league in hooking penalties. He has nine.
