Here is where the numbers are fun. The Sedins have torn through the NHL the past few years and are a legitimate scoring threat every time they take the ice.
They also make the players around them better (with the exception of Taylor Pyatt), gave Anson Carter a career year and have made Alex Burrows rich.
There is a belief that if you play with the Sedins you just need to head to the net and keep your stick on the ice; they will find you. Carter followed that mantra all the way to a 33 goal season in 2005 and Burrows has blossomed into a goal scorer while on the Sedins line.
The twins have different offensive games. Henrik is the play maker and every year is among the league leader in assists. Daniel is the sniper.
Together they are deadly. Whether it is because of some creepy twin magic or, more likely, the tremendous amount of time playing together, they seem to know where the other is.
Once the Sedins start to cycle the other team’s defense is scrambling and will find them selves out of position.
So, who is the better offensive player?
This is a tough call, they both average the same amount of points per game.
That being said, we are going with Henrik. He is the playmaker; he sets up Daniel, Burrows and even Ryan Kesler on the power play.
Daniel is a sniper for sure, but he is not great at creating his own shot.
Give the edge, a slight one, to Henrik here.
