Vancouver Canucks blogger C-Mac points out powerful teams in sports cannot dominate games unless they dominate possession of the ball or puck. You must think on the fly. The speed of thought exhibited by the twins Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin is also indispensable as it allows them to maintain an air of unpredictability. We Canucks fans call it The Art of Sedinery.

Q brings us a NWSportsBeat.com You tube video of the Detroit Red Wings vs. Vancouver Canucks game tonight where Swedish superstar, and one time soccer player Daniel Sedin managed to head a puck into the Red Wings zone tonight, looking like a headed pass on a soccer pitch. He and his brother Henrik Sedin are certainly gifted players...
As a Bruins fan, I grew to hate the Sedin brothers during last year’s Stanley Cup Finals. Maybe I was annoyed by the Game 7 guarantee Daniel Sedin made or the fact that he refused to stick up for himself while Brad Marchand repeatedly socked him in the face. It could also be the unmatched lameness of the Daniel and Henrik Sedin combo jersey that has turned me into a Sedin-hater...
During second period action of Wednesday night’s Canucks-Red Wings tilt, Vancouver forward Daniel Sedin pulled off a rather nifty move to dump the puck into the Detroit zone by performing the rarely seen “hockey header.” Sedin executed the move to perfection, meaning that a) he was able to get the puck deep in the Red Wings zone, and b) he didn’t get concussed doing it...

On Thursday night against the Detroit Red Wings, Daniel Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks inadvertently revolutionized the dump into the zone with, ahem, a heads-up play:
Hey, that's using your head! That's how you get a head in this business. The Canucks are heading in the right direction. Vancouver is always playing head games with its opponents. (C'mon, eight more and...
Vancouver Canucks blogger Richard Hodges Love Em Hate Em Canucks hockey blog. He recaps and rewinds the win over the Minnesota Wild. Roberto Luongo quietly picked up his first shutout of the year Mike Yeo had the neutral zone clogged all night long. That didn't stop Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, and Alex Burrows from being AMAZING. Cody Hodgson and Jannik Hansen were special too.
Daniel Sedin, I don't know who you are, but I am impressed with your ingenuity with the art of passing.

Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg offered a brilliant, if understated, explanation for why it's so hard to contain Henrik and Daniel Sedin, brothers and leading scorers of the Vancouver Canucks. "They've been playing with each other for basically their whole lives," Zetterberg said Tuesday, "so they've got pretty good chemistry."
