I would be much happier if he played in the Eastern Conference...but anyway, congrats to the Ducks and their fans.

It is shocking, I thought he was done after that year with the Avs and then the lockout but turns out he is like a fine wine

Teemu needs a couple of more seasons to take the record for most PP goals ever.

I like Selanne a lot. He's one of those players that pretty much everyone has a liking for and can respect. I'm really glad to see him keep going. Our league wouldn't be the same without him, especially after losing guys like Weight, Recchi, etc. to retirement already this offseason.

80 points in 73 GP in 10-11. No reason to believe he won't repeat that (or come close to it) again this year. He's ageless. He's still got it. $4M for Selanne this year is a bargain. Worth every penny.

Im so happy for both him, ducks and the NHL. He's a legend and he will contribute massively even tho he may have gotten a little slower, he has the hands and eye for the goal its unbeliveable

As someone pointed out earlier, it's not that much about what he wants, but what he is offered.

Happy to see him one more year. One of my alltime favorites from his Jets days. His rookie season was one of the most magical I've ever had the pleasure to see with my own eyes.

I was a season-ticket holder in the Peg when he arrived and watched him develop until Bettman moved the team... Loved Teemu then, love him now (as a Canucks' season ticket holder). Sad that I don't get to see him in Vancouver (no Anaheim games in my package), but stoked that he is back on the ice for one more year (and hopefully another after that!).

Saw many of his 76 goals and saw him with Tie Domi going into one of the strip bars in the Peg back in the day... Wide-eyed Teemu after he saw what the entertainment was!

I'd like to see him crush the 30-goal plateau and believe it is possible with his teammates feeding him the puck on the PP, health issues aside of course.

Go Teemu Go!!

Darn it, hate playing against Selanne.
He's still got it and glad to see him play another year with the Ducks.
Congrats Duck fans.

I'm sure this "race" is the only reason Jagr came back

and Teemu getting back how could he stop if the knee still gives him some extra career time and he loves the game still so much plus having the games in Helsinki and Winnipeg is a plus.

The contract also has a no trade clause. Even though I wouldn't believe Bob would trade him in the trade deadline if the Ducks don't make playoffs. This most likely is really the last season for Teemu. (Even though we've heard it for years).

And after the career is over. Teemu stays in OC area (summer's in Finland) and probably will do some work with the Ducks.

Great resigning for the Ducks and the NHL.

I allready posted this on the main board:


Selanne Salary:

05-06 1 000 000$
06-07 3 250 000$
07-08 1 500 000$ + 1 350 000 bonus
08-09 3 250 000$
09-10 2 000 000$
10-11 3 250 000$ + 1 250 000 bonus

So average salary of 2 375 000$ for 380gp 185g 204a 389pts over six seasons since the lockout and some people are complaining that he didn't take big enough pay cut 4 million is a paycut.

Selanne plays because he loves the game, Anaheim and the Ducks...the money is just a bonus in all this.

YES!

Teemu is one of my 3 favorite players of all time. It's difficult to put in words what it means to see a legend of the game play at least one more season. I'm going to enjoy every minute of Selanne playing the amazing speed/skill game he's played for 2 decades.

It would have been a real bummer if he had decided not to continue his amazing post-lockout run. I never had serious doubts, though.
