Wow! Hank Sedin has absolutely taken it to the next level this season. He is officially a bona fide superstar in this league. The level of skill and confidence he is showcasing is extremely entertaining. I can finally say I’d pay big bucks to watch a Canucks player since Pavel Bure.
Named first star for the month of December with 25 pts in 15 games and 14 pts in his last 7, even without his bro Danny, Hank has been on fire. He is now tied with Joe Thornton for first in the league with 58 pts after his 3 pt effort last night versus the Blue Jackets.
The defining moment of the change in his game was on Dec 27, 2009. Taking a hit from Calgary’s Dion Phaenuf, Hank did not back down to someone twice his size and fought back, then scored. This is unlike the Sedins of past. He is ready to lead us in the playoffs.
