      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

(Signing) Selanne re-ups with Ducks, 1 yr, $4.5 mil

Recommended Posts

http://ducks.ocregis...h-ducks/111992/

Teemu Selanne, who sits 12th on the NHL’s all-time scoring list with 663 goals, is back for one more season with the Ducks as he agreed to a one-year contract on Thursday.

Selanne, who turned 42 on July 3, went beyond his own initial timetable to decide whether he’d play again but he delivered some positive news in what’s been a rough summer for the Ducks, whose fans hoped that the future Hall of Famer and franchise icon would put off retirement once more.

The beloved high-scoring winger has spent each of the last few summers deciding if he willing to put in the work to display the high level of play that he’s shown over 19 NHL seasons.

That was the case in 2011-12 as Selanne carried the Ducks through their horrific first three months and eventually finished with 26 goals and 66 points, the latter of which led the team in scoring. He also had 31 goals and 49 assists in 2010-11 and has 211 goals and 244 assists since getting his left knee surgically redone during the 2004-05 lockout.

The all-time leading scorer in Ducks history, Selanne could realistically catch Jaromir Jagr, Luc Robitaille, Mario Lemieux, Steve Yzerman and Mark Messier on the career goals list and has an outside shot of being the seventh player in NHL history to score 700 goals.

More to come …

Good news for Ducks and the league basically. This guy is a physical anomaly being able to play at his level at his age. When's he ever going to slow down?

That's nothing. If Whitney & Jagr can get 4.5 mill, Selanne could have got more.

Hey Vancanfan.

+1

Thanks for the info.

I am loving me some of that Teemu Selanne. I think he is a class act and hope he plays another 5 years if he can !!

Essentially this means I will watch at least one game against the Ducks this year and be frustrated because Selanne buries the winner. He seems to have some great games against the Canucks.

Glad to know he'll be around the league for another year. One more chance to see him in person. Great player and a solid person from all anecdotal reports.

At least with Selanne around, there is still someone playing in the NHL that's older than me. :lol:

I think it's just him and Roloson to go.
