"This year, we want to prove we can still play at a high level, and that's up to us to do. And we know that if we do, it'll be easier to answer those questions later in the year. So that's our mindset."

2016-17 was a down season for both brothers, who produced far below their career averages. The team as a whole is in a retooling phase, but Henrik still believes the team can compete if he and Daniel are at the top of their games.

"For me and Daniel, it's just about being as good as we can. I think we should be able to fight for a playoff spot. That's our goal."

Picked second (Daniel) and third (Henrik) overall in the 1999 NHL Draft, the Sedins are entering their 17th seasons with the Canucks. Each is entering the fourth and final season of respective four-year, $28-million contracts, and both can become unrestricted free agents next summer.
