It's no secret that I am a big fan of the Sedin twins, two of the most unique and talented players in the history of the game. I am very lucky to have had a front row seat over the years.
Their creativity was as thrilling to watch as a Pavel Bure rush through the neutral zone. Their game featured subtlety that true hockey fans appreciate. They did not have massive speed or brawny force. No, they were intellectuals on the ice. No change that. They were artists on the ice.
It still baffles me that any questioned their toughness. To any fanwho ever did that, I immediately would question their knowledge of hockey. And still do. Because these guys were as tough as they were creative.
Tonight will be a special night in Vancouver. Soon to follow will be their Hockey Hall of Fame induction.
