Despite several sources stating "the Sedins are close to re-signing with the Canucks," with one being Al Strahan on CBC's Satellite Hotstove, there is no truth to it. The twins' agent, J.P. Barry, has said they have not started to talk and aren't expected to until next week at the earliest.

Carlo's Note: I see the Sedins remaining in Vancouver, but I think this really hinges on their asking price and how long the contract is.
