You are talking about three years in a 19 year career, and two of those seasons he still managed 29 and 28 goals respectfully. All three are consequtive and pre-lockout as well. I'd weigh his 650+ career goals as being more indicative of his play than two so-so and one bad year eight years ago.

Having said that, I think Winnipeg would be the ideal choice for Selanne.
I agree the Jets are possible, but ideal? They aren't even in the playoffs right now. If Teemu leaves Anaheim, it's to go to a cup contender, or at least a playoff team. If he wants a tour down memory lane he could just go and sign in Winnipeg in the off-season and play one last year as the centre of the universe, which he would be in Winnipeg.
