They could have been back together in Anaheim. According to the Globe and Mail, Kariya and Bryan Murray had discussions early in the off season about the Ducks plans and Kariya even went so far as to suggest that Selanne was a player Kariya could talk to about coming to Anaheim.

No. Wrong. Kariya turned his back on the Ducks organization, his team mates who carried *him* to the seventh game of the SCF, and to the Anaheim fans that supported him for nine years.
