Talks Underway Between Gillis and Sedins

"You never know until they're actually signed and you get down to the nitty-gritty of these things, but often times there's a long pre-amble to getting right down to where the most you can spend and what they're willing to accept, and we're confident we can get to that point pretty shortly here."

They've indicated to me everytime I've spoken to them that they like it here, their children were born here, they like the way they've been treated, they like the direction we're trying to go with this team, and they've both told me they think this was the best team they've played on in their pro careers.  So those are all pretty positive factors."

Personally, I get the feeling that a deal will be done. I also think that the Twins may just sign for a little less than $7 million. It's just a matter of time now before we know the deal. Once the Sedins sign (or don't) the rest of the dominoes will fall into place (Wellwood, O'Brien, Pyatt, etc. )
