According to Swedish newspaper Expressen, Daniel and Henrik Sedin have each tabled a 12-year, $63 million contract offer to the Vancouver Canucks. According to Darren Dreger of TSN, GM Mike Gillis has already rejected the offer. Brochu's take: I think the twins will hit the open market. And if they do, I don't think they will be re-signing with the Canucks.
The Miami Herald is also reporting that the Florida Panthers are "officially" shopping the rights to impending UFA Jay Bouwmeester. Brochu's take: There's a rumored list of teams he wants to be traded to, but at this point the Panthers will trade his rights to anyone who will give the highest package. Source
