Kariya and Selanne might both want to come to Vancouver now that there is no one here to drive them back to the airport

seriously though, I could see them both being interested in Vancouver... Crow is still here (at least for now and with Nonis as GM he has more security than if an outside guy came) and everyone knows that Crow runs an offensive style... offensive players would enjoy playing in that type of system.

But with the CBA situation, and the rumours about so many UFAs this year (after many of the RFAs don't get qualified) they could end up just about anywhere...

Detroit might be making bigger changes, and some of their vets might finally hang em up... same as Toronto... there's still the Rangers... the Stars might be making big changes (and weren't they close to getting Selanne a couple years ago, when he invoked his no-trade clause?)... The Blues are also a possibility after a disappointing year.

lots of options... with new management though, and it being Kariya's hometown, I wouldn't be surprised if they looked into getting him there... would be just the marketing move that a new GM might like to make in his first season, especially one that knows he's following a pretty successful GM already.
