Losing Selanne is going to hurt, and you can't replace a Teemu Selanne, but if the Ducks live and die by Selanne, something is seriously wrong.
And that's why we sucked last year. Perry wasn't as deadly as the previous season, Ryan seemed bothered by trade talks and Getzlaf simply wasn't there.
Selanne is way more than the supposedly fourth best player on the team, he is the face of our franchise and the guy who put Anaheim on the hockey map (with... ugh... Kariya).

Losing him and "moving on" (who's gonna replace such a legend?) won't help our Ducks one bit.
