2nd line? Koivu and Selanne may very well be the first line! Those guys have always dominated together.

that's a safe bet

and I concur, we don't have a 2nd line... we have two 1st lines.

Wooooooooo!
Yes Yes Yes

I'm so stoked. We have two amazing scoring lines now.

Sign the Wiz and we're basically set, provided one kid can step up into the top four.

I'm not getting too excited until I see it from a major site, but I'm putting some cash aside to get the #11 jersey!

I think it should be Ryan - Koivu - Selanne dribble.gif

That's a steal. He must have really wanted to play with Selanne in the NHL. Murray you are a hell of a deal maker!

It's all on Teemu. Koivu could have taken the Wild's offer for three or four years, but Teemu probably didn't get off his a$$ in Finland until he signed with us. laugh.gif That is going to be amazing. smile.gif

Great news! Looks like Teemu Selanne is quite a salesman to get Saku to agree to a one-year deal!

Ryan/Getzlaf/Perry
Lupul/Koivu/Selanne

That's a solid top six!

Yay! Good thing he won't be wearing #7!

He will definitely be a more welcome addition than our last second line center experiment with Brendan Morrison.

it's on the Ducks official twitter. Ducks official Blog. and the OC Register Ducks Blog....


it's a done deal.

Things changed recently when Adam Brady took over the Twitter... ducks break their own news now.(or at least have with Salcido and Koivu)

Let's not underestimate what this does to the Ducks locker room as well. Saku Koivu was the captain of the Montreal Canadiens for well over a decade and he brings a ton of leadership into the room. Whatever leadership the Ducks lost in Chris Pronger (and I happen to think he was a bad influence on the team but we can discuss that in another thread) they are gaining and then some in signing Koivu.

Great signing and another strong move by Bob Murray.

Very excited... a good player with class and poise.

He's the Anti-Bertuzzi
