At this point I only really want an end to the lockout so the Ducks can negotiate for an extended period of time. But to tell the truth, I'm not feeling too optimistic about keeping both. Even if they want to play together.
Depends on revenue sharing rules. If the Ducks get a large infusion of cash they may well be able to afford both. Also, they can roll Selanne's salary into what those two get.

I'm praying that the circumvention contracts are actually killed vs the NHLPA proposal to allow them but sorta punish a team if the retire in the future - teams will still hand them out like candy because they assume the cap penalty in 10-15 years will be negligible or will be tradable to a cap floor team.
