The Canucks have extended Daniel and Henrik Sedin to matching 4 year deals, with a cap hit of $7.0M per season for each Sedin. This deal is a slight increase to their current deal of $6.1M per season The long awaited extension was finally signed today, with the Sedins taking what again appears to be a hometown discount. On the open market, the Sedins could’ve easily fetched over $8.0M a year each, but have signed a deal worth $7.0M per season, which will allow the Canucks freedom to build around them again. There was some reports in that Canucks may not be able to retain the Sedins, or that it may come down to the wire, but this week GM Mike Gillis had stated that the only hold up was going to be the exact cap hit, as they were unsure of where the cap would be next year. It appears that the Canucks management had determined that the pay increase of $900,000 each, was not enough to worry about and completed the deal. With top prospects in Horvat, Shinkaruk, Gaunce and Jensen currently developing,  and the Sedins signed for another 4 years, the Canucks are in great shape to continue to keep ‘the window’ open for a Stanley Cup.
