Probably just bad wording, but yeah, Selanne came back to a Mighty Ducks team in 2005-06 that still had Fedorov - and had yet to see the first franchise games for Niedermayer, Getzlaf, and Perry. So if Fedorov was moved prior to the forming of the "Getzlaf/Perry years," Selanne certainly did not come back to Getzlaf and Perry's Mighty Ducks, as those two didn't breakout for another 20 months or so - after Selanne's 94 points helped get them (58 points, 44 points) into the playoffs.

If you want to argue that they were of great benefit after Selanne returned to the team in February 2008, sure, but those first two seasons in which Selanne was flirting with the top-10 in scoring (3 points away in 2006; 1 point away in 2007) were not because of Getzlaf/Perry.
