Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
Kariya, Selanne, why not?
Yet Kariya remains in the same place Selanne was in deciding whether he even wants to play.
The 35-year-old Kariya, who had 18 goals in 75 games for the Blues last season, is working out as though he will return to the NHL but he and veteran agent Don Baizley have not gone knocking on doors looking for work.
In the next few weeks Kariya will determine which door he will pass through; the one Selanne passed through Monday that leads to another NHL season and a chance to prove that those rare skills have not eroded, that he can still play with the best; or the door that all great players choose at some point, the one that leads away from the game.
Here’s hoping whether it’s a return to Anaheim or somewhere else, Kariya’s choice leads him back to an NHL rink.
