The 2007 Stanley Cup winner and the all-time points leader in men’s Olympic ice hockey, who has played in the NHL since the 1992-93 season, told the Finnish daily Turun Sanomat that he will quit if the team announces plans to perform a rejuvenation operation and start building a new squad.
Selänne, who turns 40 early next month, said that his continuing with the team is likely “if Anaheim decides that is still wants to win next season and if it wants to keep the team more or less the same.”
Selänne believes that the situation is very similar to that of his fellow countryman Saku Koivu, 35, who is still without a contract. The ball - or the puck - is in the team’s court so to speak.
“Saku, too, is in a situation where he wants to continue to play in a winning team”, Selänne commented about his teammate to the Turku-based newspaper.
