Contract negotiations between Henrik and Daniel Sedin and the Vancouver Canucks are set to begin on Thursday.

TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger says that the Sedin's agent, J.P. Barry, will meet with Canucks management and that as of yet, no offer has been made on an extension.

The brothers are each due to earn $6.1 million this year in the final season of their five-year, $30.5 million contracts. Both are eligible to become unrestricted free agents next summer unless they are signed to new deals.

Henrik Sedin had 11 goals and 34 assists in 48 games for the Canucks last season. Daniel Sedin had 12 goals and 28 assists in 47 games.

The twins turn 33 on September 26.

The Canucks also said on Wednesday that forward David Booth is still not cleared to take part in training camp. Head coach John Tortorella said Booth is day-to-day and the team does not want to rush him back.
