Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

They have near-identical stats to match their near-identical genes, but twin-brother NHL-ers Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin will be split up during All-Star weekend, as only Henrik was named to the Western Conference roster to represent their Vancouver Canucks squad.

I do like this proposed trickery for preventing a case of separation anxiety for the Swedish forwards:

$5 says they both go and pretend to be just one guy and no one notices.

I’d have no complaints if the Sedins somehow decided to attempt this. It’s only an All-Star Game, for Christ’s sake — no sanctity to violate.

I’m not sure if there’d be precedent. I do recall a story from twin football players Tiki and Ronde Barber about how they would, while playing their college ball at the University of Virginia, sometimes switch jerseys during practice to try to trick teammates and coaches. It wouldn’t work — Ronde would sit in on the offensive unit’s meetings and get outed within seconds, and Tiki would give himself away similarly in the defensive classroom.
