Henrik & Daniel Sedin Retiring This Year

Post by Bill Barilko » Mon Apr 02, 2018 5:52 pm

Truly a sad day they were the only bright light here for so long but they both have young families so I guess it's for the best

Thank You Canucks Fans - A Letter from Daniel and Henrik Sedin
...Thank you for everything. We will always be Canucks, and this will always be our home.
by Henrik & Daniel Sedin @Canucks / Vancouver Canucks

Dear Canucks fans,

Earlier this year we wrote a letter to the city, and to everyone who has supported us for the past 18 years. Many people were asking what the future holds. We said we'd take it one year at a time. We said when the time was right, we'd talk with our families and sit down with management to discuss it.

We started the year with the mindset that a decision would be made in the postseason. But it became clear, after discussions with our families throughout the year, that this will be our last season. This feels right for all of us.

Being part of the Canucks family for 18 seasons has been the best period of our lives. But it's time to focus on our families and life after hockey. It's time to help with homework every night. It's time to be at every birthday party and to stand in the cold at every hockey rink, soccer game and riding lesson on weekends. It's time to be at home for dinner every night.

We're saying it now because we want to share these final three games with you. We also want to share these games with our families, friends, teammates, coaches, trainers, staff and everyone at the Canucks who have supported us. You've all been with us every step of the way, and we want to thank you.

It's time to let the next generation of young players lead the Canucks. Travis is building a strong culture and emphasizes a style of play we know will be successful. The team is in great hands, with people who care about its success and it's headed in the right direction. We know there is a bright future for the Canucks.

As we've said before, Vancouver has become home. This is our family's home. We plan to be part of this community long after we retire. Vancouver has given us so much and we've tried to give everything we have in return. That won't change.

In the meantime, we still have some games to play, and we still have some work to do.

Henrik and Daniel

Classy, great players for many years. A shame the nhl allowed the bruins to bully them in the 2011 Stanley cup final.

Outstanding performance by both Sedins tonight in their last Vancouver appearance ever.

Yup, it's like Ted Williams hitting a home run in his last at bat. Really amazing sequence.

I cried, a little. The confluence in numbers was eery. 22, 33 everywhere (coals, assists, timing).

Btw, I love that the biggest 50/50 prize ever given out in Canada was to a real estate agent in Vancouver.
