Also Kurri played in the scoreful 80's and Selanne played trough the dead puck era and two lock outs AND some horrible injuries.
If there was no injuries and the first lock out I think it's safe to say he'd be pushing 800 goals by now.
I agree definitely he should be ranked ahead of Kurri. I just think Selanne is more talented.

You really haven't watched too many Ducks' games this season? Getzlaf has been good, yes there is still some potential he isn't using most of the time but he's no Kovalev.

On topic: Teemu rocks. Too bad that that Jagr goon came back so that Teemu might not be able to pass him in goals and become the best European goal scorer.

Selanne could easily have the best season ever for 41+ year old:

PPG

Selanne 1.17 11-12
Boucher 0.93 43-44
Howe 0.93 69-70
Bucyk 0.88 76-77
Howe 0.83 70-71

Points

Howe 71 69-70
Howe 52 70-71
Recchi 48 10-11
Larionov,Messier,Recchi and Bucyk at 43 points

Positioning mostly

Hockey is more familiar to selanne than driving a car, drinking oj, and laying down beautiful women

Much like recchi, except selanne is naturally faster and has a better shot

The NHL lockout saved Teemu Selanne's career.

Teemu was playing on a bad knee for a few years leading up to the 2004-05 season. During that season he decided to sign with Jokerit and undergo surgery on his knee, but didn't play due to a longer than expected rehab process.

The combination of rest, rehabilitation, and a strong workout regiment helped Selanne come back into the NHL a faster, stronger skater than he had been in previous years.

Add that to his tremendous skill, vision, and experience, and you have the making of a player who can last a long time in the NHL.

I grabbed him with the 41st pick in my draft. 41 at 41. Seemed like it made sense.

The guy's in shape, plus he's a shooting winger. Smarts can carry him longer than say if he was a center and had to carry all the responsibilities of a center. He gets in position and benefits. Like Brett Hull. And that's not a knock, those guys know how to play the game and do what they do better than almost anyone who's ever played.

He has alien blood in him. Seriously he's in great shape and still has a cannon of a shot. And the fact that he did not enter the NHL until he was 23 helps compared to entering when your 18. Less wear and tear on the body.

Honestly, probably still my favorite player in the league. Classy, humble guy, always giving credit to his teammates, coaches and even opponents.

He will get a standing ovation when he visits Winnipeg next month. I hope he scores a hat-trick against us. In a 4-3 Ducks loss, that is.

Borrow? Lidstrom's hunting him down as we speak.

i'm not that impressed. I still say that he'll slow down when he hits 50 years of age.

Personally, I have decided that I think Selanne and Lidstrom are both robots.

Lol! I was just wondering about his JOFA helmet while watching that game yesterday. Could they design that thing to be anymore large and round? Plus, it's white so it looks like a dinosaur egg.
