Judging by the 2 paycuts he took to stay in Anaheim over the last few years, I doubt he's going to accept anyone's offer and put Burke in a spot.
I think Selanne might actually be pretty old. Who knows though?

If Vancouver identifies Selanne as a guy that could help them next season, look out. The Canucks could offer a deal that makes Anaheim look pretty bad. Selanne like Sundin is a wealthy guy, so he could be willing to leave $4mil a year on the table to stay in Anaheim. You never know. He would have to be pretty content.
