Dreger: Sedins facing reality they may be done in Vancouver

Henrik and Daniel Sedin are facing the reality they may have to leave the only NHL city they have ever called home.

The Sedins' agent, JP Barry, will spend the next few days in Sweden preparing the 28-year old twins for their next step, unrestricted free agency.

Barry says there has been no progress in contract discussions, including a meeting this week in Montreal with Canucks general manager Mike Gillis that failed to encourage a counter offer to keep the Sedins in Vancouver.

On the open market, the brothers will command upwards of $7 million and will draw interest from a number of teams, including Toronto, Montreal, Minnesota and Los Angeles.

Over the past three years, the Sedins have averaged 80 points per season.

Only 12 forwards have scored 70 points or more in each season since the lockout.  Joe Thornton, Alexander Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, Pavel Datsyuk, Dany Heatley, and Ilya Kovalchuk are among this dynamic dozen and with the exception of the Sedins, the average salary of every player in this group is just above $7.5 million.

Henrik and Daniel Sedin are in for a significant raise, but they're likely going to have to leave Vancouver to collect it.
