Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis met with Henrik and Daniel Sedin's agent, JP Barry, late Friday night following round one of the NHL Entry Draft.

The Canucks did not table a counter proposal to the Sedin's recent 12-year, $63 million dollar pitch, and sources say Gillis gave no indication a counter offer is coming.

The Sedins are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents on July 1.

Last season, the Sedins were 1-2 in scoring for the Canucks. Daniel led the team with 31 goals and 51 assists, while Henrik had 22 goals and 60 assists. Both played in all 82 games for Vancouver, and averaged nearly 20 minutes of ice time per match.
