Some Sedin Love

Mirtle has posted a great read about the Sedin's and how they compare to other top forwards. Interesting things of note:
-Daniel and Henrik both finished with 82 points, good enough to be tied for 13th in the NHL during the season.
-Putting aside the limitations of plus-minus for the moment, they also finished 14th and 17th among forwards in that category as well.
-The only players Daniel had fewer even-strength points than this season were Malkin, Ovechkin, Crosby, Parise, Datsyuk and Havlat. Add Iginla to the list for those ahead of Henrik.

He's makes a case for them to be worth the 6.5 each they've been "rumoured" to have asked for. For the full article, click here.

I still think that they have to prove their worth by a long run in this playoffs. So this is your chance Sedins, prove it to me!
