As a Kings fan, I dislike the Ducks as a team...but who can possibly dislike Selanne? He's so much fun to watch, and at this point I feel like he's never going to slow down or show his age.

That's why I brought up Yakapov, I was enhancing the sarcasm, thats why my reply was even sarcasm.

If Teemu had entered the NHL 3 years before he did instead of playing in Finland, his NHL career would have spanned now over 4 decades.

But i am glad he did not.

I rather think of him as the greatest rookie of all-time. (Yes, i realize that there is cases to be made for other rookies too, but Selanne has the records)

Selšnne is not human

He's friggin 42 years old and have 9 points in 7 games. He just passed Doug Gilmour in the all-time scoring league and claimed the 17th spot. Also, with the goal against Kings he's now only 1 goal behind Jagr as the european with most goals in the NHL.

Who would've thought he'd be this good at 42 years old back when he was with Sharks and Avalanche...

For how long can he stay this good? the Finnish Flash is only getting better..

Well we just had a praise Selanne thread yesterday, but as I said in that one, enough good things can never be said about Selanne so bring on this new Selanne praise thread. All hail the Finnish Flash, the man that age forgot.

True, but I mean come on it's selanne. Selanne at 50% should be better than half the league.

Selanne isn't Finnish. He's an alien from Alpha Centauri whose spaceship crashed in Finland.

He almost scored on a slick backhand shot. Hit the post. Unreal how good he still is.

Nonsense. We need daily Selanne threads to feed his greatness.
