Teemu Selanne is a man in charge of his own destiny.
Due to his no-trade clause, he decides if he stays in California or heads elsewhere.
With the Ducks sitting at 13th in the Western conference by nine points, playoff hopes are barely flickering in Anaheim.
Despite this, Selanne has been quoted saying that he and his teammates still believe that they can make the playoffs.
Of all the players on this list, the Finnish Flash is possibly the best fit for the Red Wings. His speed, skill and friendship with Valtteri Filppula make him not only a fan favorite, but a player favorite as well.
Selanne would cost the Red Wings, and it would be a move that would have a serious impact on Red Wings prospects and current players alike. He is also aging, and would be coming into the NHL's oldest team.
Multiple sources have cited him as being at least somewhat interested in the Red Wings, including this one from MLive.com.
In my opinion, Selanne is better off with the Ducks, and the Red Wings money is best served on a younger player who could contribute for years to come.
