I kinda want to see Selanne retire and koivu move on... just for the sake of shaking things up. I know that's horrible to say.
Letting Selšnne retire and letting some other players go might not be the worst thing to do. This really reminds me of Finland's WC team last Spring because for the first time it didn't have every veteran player who were on the top of their careers ten years ago. It was a brand new team with younger Koivu as it's captain with young veterans from all around Europe instead of "the old gang". These guys were hungry for success. WC and NHL isn't the same thing but the same mentality can be used for building a NHL team. Selšnne is still good but maybe it's time to move on. I'm sure he doesn't want to become a burden for the team so I hope he knows when it's time to let the youngsters in (and I know that I put Selšnne in my lineup but I think he could be good in 2nd line with very talented and young center and with Bobby).
Also I would like to say that UFA market doesn't look too good this year so people saying "let's sign a 2nd line center" might want to say the name since I can't find anyone. That's why I would like to see the Ducks draft a center with 1st pick and hope that he can be the 2nd line center with two veterans as his wingers.
