Will Selanne retire a Duck?
TheFourthPeriod.com

Anaheim Ducks veteran forward Teemu Selanne will need to decide if he wants to retire as a member of a struggling team or with a Stanley Cup contender.

According to the Ottawa Sun, the 41-year-old is the only one that can choose his fate as Ducks GM Bob Murray has clearly stated that he will not move Selanne.

As many as four clubs have been reported to hold interest in the veteran winger as the San Jose Sharks, Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers have all inquired about Selanne's availability with the trade deadline drawing closer.

Selanne has recorded 15 goals and 29 assists for 44 points in 46 games and could bring a veteran presence that the Sharks, Bruins and Rangers could benefit from during a championship run.

The Rangers are expected to shop for a high-end forward before the deadline, but if they fail to convince Selanne to give Murray permission to move him, they could deal for Edmonton Oilers right winger Ales Hemsky.

Selanne has a chance to retire a champion and could allow the Ducks to get some considerable assets in return.
