sedins We want contract

With today being the last day for the Canucks GM Mike Gillis to negotiate a new contract for the Sedin twins exlusively, what will happen? Will they re-sign for that 12 year deal or will they take less years or test the free agent market? Personally I like the Sedin’s and all but a 12 year contract seems way too long for them to be here. I would rather see them sign a 6-7 year deal instead, it’s still long deal and not a lifetime. I’ve never liked the idea of 10-15 year contracts handed out to players. Sure you keep your superstars around for a long time at a lower cap hit, but it just looks weird too me. Then there’s the high possibilty of testing the free agent market where there’s talk of them going to Toronto because of the Brian Burke factor. I have no idea what will happen with their contracts and where they will sign, we can only guess and speculate.

Looking Forward

I’m looking forward to the start of the B.C. Lions 2009 season this coming Friday. After last years disappointing finish to the season(11-7) and the close loss in the West Finals to the eventual Grey Cup Champion Calgary Stampeeders. This Lions fan, and many others are hoping for a better year all around. Can they do it? With the losses of the CFL’s Most Out-Standing Defensive Player, Cameron Wake and Slotback Jason Clermont it might be a little bit tough. The Lions still have other gamebreakers in Geroy Simon and Paris Jackson on offense and Brent Johnson and Barron Miles on defense. They should still be able to stay in games depending on how well everyone else does around them.

The Lions lost both their pre-season games by small margins(30-37 to Calgary and 19-31 to Edmonton). Rookie QB Travis Lulay was impressive in both his outings, but failed to bring the Leos back when he entered late in the games. Let’s hope the regular season goes better than the pre-season.

The B.C. Lions take on the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Mosaic Stadium in Regina at 6:00 PM PST on TSN and Team 1040.
