Much like Scott Niedermayer is wrestling with thoughts of retirement, so too is Selanne.
“The decision is way harder than I thought,” he told a small group of reporters at Anaheim Ice on Friday. “I thought it was going to be an easy decision and just move on. Obviously, everything has just been unbelievable here. When you have played something since you were 6 years old. . . . Now I know how players say how hard it is to retire….
I’m guessing I’m going to see how I feel when the season starts and I’m watching the games,” he said. “By then, I’ll know for sure whether I want to go back and play again. But right now, I feel at this point, there’s no way I can be as motivated” as needed.
“If I don’t feel the same way the next month or so, then it’s time to do something. It’s unbelievable, [this] decision. But it has to be right.”
