Fans of the Vancouver Canucks who love having the Sedins in the fold can (probably) rejoice. With each due to earn $6.1 million in the final year (2013-14) of their current contracts, Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin are reportedly close to signing extensions in Vancouver. In fact, the twins may have new deals in place before the start of this regular season.

Forward Phil Kessel, on the other hand, doesn't seem all too sure his future includes a new deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Entering the final year of his contract ($5.4 million), the 25-year-old doesn't anticipate an extension anytime soon.

Teemu Selanne was scheduled to meet with the head coach and general manager of the Anaheim Ducks Tuesday -- presumably to figure out where he would potentially fit into the Ducks' lineup through 2013-14. We should expect a "yea" or "nay" from the 43-year-old in regards to retirement shortly.
