Second, maybe I'm being pedantic, but saying "Selanne's last shot at the Cup" really makes no sense to me.
It's pretty basic. Selanne is going to have this year and maybe next year before retirement. With people aging and a longer season, it's unlikely that the Ducks will be as good next year. Looking at the actual team, this is the year they have a reasonable shot at a Cup.
And Koivu is still an effective 2-3C tweener. He easily still has three years left, and can slide down to a 4th line PK specialist for someone if he feels like playing longer. Whether he wants to is another issue, but he's shown no signs of falling off a cliff to indicate he's done after next year IMO.
