James O’Brien breathes a sigh of relief

The Sedins resigned with the Canucks this morning before UFA officially started. Looks to be about half the deal they were asking for. 5 years, 30.5M for each of them, as opposed to the 12 year 63M loldeal they were initially looking for. Not a bad move for the Canucks, and I think the Sedins were probably finding out that the market for two giant contracts inextricably tied to each other was a lot smaller than they anticipated. The Sedins and the Canucks and O’Brien need each other. Now everyone is happy.
