Selanne to Buffalo??

Just wanted to see if anyone else can confirm this, but a Avs fan/ Sabres hating friend was in dismay because he heard on the Fan590 that we were close to a deal for the Finnish Flash. I am in no way suggesting that this is done, just wanted to see if anyone else heard this too.

Now, this could be a good pickup for Buffalo, assuming the $$ is right. A decent scoring winger to replace Satan and a great PR move and instant jersey seller for picking up someone most people have heard of. Plus could pave the way for trading of forward & goaltender for a solid #1/2 Defenseman. Thoughts??

I've listened to the Fan several times today and at no point did anyone deemed a reliable source even mentioned Buffalo, let alone a player coming here.

This thread is on a short, short leash.

maybe nummi made a call to his countryman?
it just seems like selanne would want to play for a contender as his career enters its twilight
rumor or no rumor, it wouldn't make sense from selanne's point of view unless buffalo showed him the money, and they won't

Oh I have no doubt that it is on a short leash, very understandable. Just wanted to make it clear, I just wanted to see if anyone else heard this at all, as I am not trying to pull an E****d.

I see this as a good fit if it comes about.

Selanne has to prove that he still has it in him after a HORRIBLE season in Colorado.

A one year deal worth $1.5 million sounds right, and who knows, maybe Selanne still has it in him.

I suggested giving him an incentive-heavy contract before the lockout.


I agree that it could make a Kotalik/Pyatt-type available for a trade to upgrade defense. Even though I don't think we'll see him return to the 50 goal days of yore, or even 35, I think the Selanne jerseys and extra fans in the seats (if he can be competently marketed) would pay for his salary.

Man, I would be excited to see The Finnish Flash come to Buffalo, but this feels like another empty wish. C'mon Darcy, make a move on something, please!

It won't happen, nor would I want it to. I want Selanne here just as much as I want Jillson, which is about as much as I want a tumor in my head.
