According to hockey reporter Juha Hiitela, Finnish club Jokerit has offered Selanne $10 million a season. They want him so badly they are even offering him the Vin Scully deal; for $5 million, he would only have to play in home games.
Selanne confirmed the offer from Jokerit but says only playing half the team’s games might not be a good thing. It would probably be difficult to stay in peak shape and develop chemistry with his teammates if he were only playing in half of the team’s games.
Selanne, 44, has pondered retirement on and off for years. He even briefly retired after the Anaheim Ducks won the Stanley Cup in 2007.
Teemu says his NHL days are over. He is 11th all time in goals and 15th in career points.
