Not that I think his production is going to drop or that he won't be worth his contract the next 3 years, but it is a possibility.

More importantly, I don't think tampa has any intention of trading him. The assets it would cost to pry him away would be a non-starter.

Selanne isn't going to leave anaheim as long as they are challenging for a playoff spot. And even then, maybe not. They're only 5 points out with 23 games to go.
You really think he would cost that much? I think quality pieces would entice Tampa to move him considering his age and cap hit.
