    Well deserved

    I'm not a twin so I don't really get the dynamic/connection that identical twins supposedly have but I always thought at some point they should have been split up. One stays, one is traded. Or both traded to different cities.

    No. Not locks. They deserve consideration sure but neither strike me as hall of famers. Though they could get in

    Too many numbers retired with no cups.

    I was at the draft when the Canucks got them in ‘99.

    I feel old reading this.

    The Sedins get in because of the novelty of who they are

    -The craziest draft trade in history to be chosen 2 and 3
    -Played on the same line for their entire career
    -twins
    -back to back art rosses
    -One chosen best player by the media (hart)
    -One chosen best player by the Players (Lindsey)

    If Paul F'n Kariya can get into the Hall of Fame than Sedins should be able to.

    Why do the Red Wings stipulate a player has to be in the hall of fame before they retire his number?

    I think they've overtaken Linden as the identity of the franchise.

    I'll sit here and wait for you to post a video of a Sedin diving.


    I watched their entire career and never saw a Sedin dive. Not once.

    It was mostly tongue in cheek, they deserve to be in the Hall.

    Seriously, you cannot believe your last line however.

    Hows it tongue in cheek to say these guys dived? Its ridiculous.

    And yes I believe my last line. I watched the twins for 20 years and never saw them dive. Like I said prove me wrong.

    You cant. The Sedins took abuse their entire career. Never dove. Never embellished. Pure class on and off the ice.
