I was a kid when Teemu first rolled into town with his brilliant rookie season and every single kid in my class wanted his jersey. Everybody knew his name. Teemu Selanne was like a god.

I still remember when he was traded, and I firmly believe to this day that it was a serious disservice to him. He should have left with the team.


Im not going to lie, I'd be a little disappointed if 2.0 didn't hang 13 from the rafters when he retires, in the original jersey of course.

I know he accomplished alot with the old franchise and he wasn't with the team that long either. I just think that the records and the memories belong to the fans and the people of Winnipeg.

I don't think that there is a single winnipegger out there that does not know his name. Pretty much everybody idolized him.

I personally think that something like that should be done for the guy, just because of how loved he is in this city.

That is...One man's opinion.
