Vancouver Canucks head coach Travis Green is getting comfortable in his new gig and that comfort includes not holding back on his opinion of his new roster of players.

That includes Daniel and Henrik Sedin and in Green’s first meeting with the Sedin’s he let them know exactly what he thought of their play last season.

“In our first meeting with Travis Green, he told us we were not good enough last year,” Daniel said in an interview with Sportsnet 650.

“We use that, we like that. He’s honest with you. He’s going to keep us accountable.”

Daniel Sedin registered 15 goals and a career low 44 points in 82 games while Henrik posted 50 points in all 82 games.

“For me and Henrik, we always come in every year not expecting to make the lineup,” Green continued.

“We have to work hard in training camp. We have to come into camp in good shape. We have to be really good in the preseason games. That’s always been our mindset.

“That needs to be the mindset for the young players too.”
