Anaheim Ducks GM: I'm Not Trading Teemu Selanne

Despite recent rumors suggesting Teemu Selanne could be destined for the New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks, Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings or the Winnipeg Jets, the Anaheim Ducks General Manager Bob Murray definitively put this to rest—for now.

Addressing the media yesterday, Murray asked the sports media to make the message "very strong" that Selanne is off the market, according to the Los Angeles Times. Selanne has a no-trade clause, so even if Murray changes his mind, Selanne would have to approve.

The Ducks are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games, and currently sit 11 points out from eighth-place Colorado Avalanche in the Western Conference. It is highly unlikely that the Ducks will make it to the postseason by the Feb. 27 trade deadline.

Murray commented that Selanne (along with Saku and Beauchemin) "left money on the table to stay and try and win here." But Selanne just last week admitted that we'll have to "wait and see" whether he remains a Duck for the rest of the season.

Murray is still contemplating if trading one of his core players for another core player makes sense. His decision will be based on those players' performances, according to the Los Angeles Times.
