Selanne: 'I am ready'
My thanks to a Finnish reader named Asmo, who sent in this report on Teemu Selanne:
Selanne told a Finnish newspaper that he will more like to play and the Ducks are clearing the salary cap (=Schneider) for him to fit at the moment. He told that he is very motivated and now it is his time to wait and he is willing to do that because Ducks' patience last year. Selanne also confirm that [they] are willing to bargain for the money if needed.Here's the link if your Finnish is up to speed.
Not a huge surprise that he'll be back, but this should be a big, big boost to the Ducks, who had a heckuva time scoring last season. Selanne's still a point-a-game player, and had more than 40 goals in his last two full seasons.
The report says Selanne and family will be back in California in the next few days as his children start school in Anaheim this week. Ducks training camp starts in a little more than two weeks.
