Playing on a line with Daniel and Henrik Sedin means scoring opportunities. “If you don’t score lots of points in that situation, you don’t belong there,” Mikael Samuelsson once said. “You can’t fail no matter how little talent you might have.”
He’s got a point. In Daniel and Henrik’s 11 seasons with the Canucks, “assisted by Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin” (or vice versa) has appeared on the scoresheet a staggering 223 times. And, considering the role of the third Sedin has been played by more people than Hamlet, 39 different Canucks have played the finisher in these instances.
Which brings us to today’s quiz: how many of the 39 can you name? I submit that there is no way you can name all 39. My guess is that even the diehards won’t be able to get beyond 35. Consider yourself challenged.
Super-helpful tips: The answers are in alphabetical order and you only need to enter last names.
