I too have to admit Selanne has turned into quite the Lindros-esque whiney biotch in his old age ... maybe its just the extra press coverage since the 2nd lockout in ‘05.

Whatever the case may be, if it was in fact a Selanne slash that took out DeKeyser, I’d consider it a compliment. For a player of his skill and experience to resort to injury ... that tells me Danny was doing one hell of a job out there.

As for his replacement ... it almost can’t be White or Coli .... you don’t want either of them getting injured because then you can’t trade them in the off season.  Lashoff is going to be the choice.  Not sending him to GR to participate in their playoff run even though we have 2 other healthy choices told me he was next in the pecking order.

Heres hoping the next 3 games don’t look like the 2nd half of last nights 3rd period.
