I'm starting to interpret all these "Selanne would consider a trade to a contender" rumors and speculation as Selanne basically being open to the idea of returning back to Winnipeg (and no other city) if the Ducks are out and the Jets are in the playoff mix at the deadline.

Perhaps all that has happened is that Selanne has told people close to him or Bob Murray directly that he would waive his NTC for Winnipeg, and that has evolved into stories that Selanne would waive his NTC for any playoff contender or that Selanne wants out of Anaheim.

His return in December was an emotional night for him, his family and the fans in Winnipeg. As a player at 41, those kind of things affect you differently than most players. I wouldn't be shocked if his absolute loyalty to the Ducks has waned a bit since then.
