This will probably mean Selanne retires as well. He said he'll continue if they can be competitive again and do it "one more time". If Selanne retires, Koivu will likely be go on the free market.

What does this mean for Bobby Ryan then?

good riddance...

He signs a long term deal... there was no way the Ducks were letting him get away anyway... he will be a Duck for the foreseeable future...

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting forwards, then dangles 2 defenceman, and follows it up by doing "the datsyuk" on his victims, then calmly skates back to his bench ,and goes home to his girlfriend back in the motherland.

So that 2007 Cup winning team isnt really looking so good anymore. No Pronger, Niedermayer, Beauchemin... at least they have Lubo Vishnovsky as their #1 defenceman :lol:

I'd say its a push between Vishnovsky and Wisniewski.

Hopefully this time it is for good...I've hated this guy since '95 and its good to finally not have to hear his name or see that ugly grey beard (at only 36 too) in the playoffs anymore!

I always hated him more than Pronger because of his ability to join the rush and crash the net.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Good riddance is right! Won't miss that guy. A little surprised. Thought he had more in the tank. But oh well. Wouldn't be surprised to see him pull a farv. But for now this is more good hockey news today.

Cap goes up more than expected.
And this scumbag calls it quits leaving the ducks high & dry.

Not a bad hockey day for late June. I love it.

Rumor has it that Wis is looking for top-pair money, maybe he talked Neids into retirement to strengthen his case. :hehe:

The press conference is merely to announce that he will retire someday.
