Teemu is not under contract for next year, so any salary he is paid this year will not cause "Tagging" for next year. Currently, the Ducks are under the cap enough to bring in Selanne BUT they can't extend Cory Perry's contract until the end of the Season or the "Tagging" for the extention will kick in. The downside is: A. Will the delay in extending Perry cause any grief? Perry says no. B. Will Selanne add enough to the team to put the Ducks in a better playoff position? and C. Will adding Selanne stop or slow the development of one or two of our younger players that are actually coming along nicely.
I have never put a player's name on my sweaters; they come and they go - But when Selanne retires, I will put his name on the Stanley Cup Year Sweater.
