"Hopefully the season's going to start. It would be very sad for everybody for us me and Teemu especially," Jagr told Rosen. "We don't have many games left. The separation, the goal separation is only two goals. It's the final countdown. It would be kind of special, but you never know what’s going to happen."
Jagr, 40, will be in the same division as Selanne's Ducks as a member of the Stars and both future Hall of Famers could potentially face each other six times during the season if a new CBA is settled.
The battle for most goals between the two veterans would heat up again as Selanne's 663 goals rank 12th on the all-time list, while Jagr is slightly ahead with 665 goals in 11th place.
The loss of the entire season would also affect 39-year-old captain Daniel Alfredsson, who has one-year remaining on his four-year, $19.5 million contract with the Ottawa Senators.
In 73 games with the Philadelphia Flyers last season, Jagr posted 19 goals and 35 assists for 54 points. Selanne collected 26 goals and 40 assists for 66 points in all 82 contests with the Ducks.
On Friday, the NHL announced that it had cancelled all regular-season games in November, due to the absence of a new CBA with the NHLPA.
