No, you're not in the minority at all. As great as our depth finally is, we can't find linemates for Selanne... go figure.

The other thing I want to end is Ryan and Selanne being on the same line. People have waged that it would work for years, but it just doesn't. Again, I know it's not popular opinion, but Ryan looks like he's on another level to me when he's on the first line. Palmieri is finally coming into his own as an NHL player and personally I think his speed and forechecking ability can really benefit Teemu on that second line (as opposed to Ryan whose looking to cycle and roam around the zone).
