NHL Trade Rumors: The Top  8 Team with the Best Chance to Land Teemu Selanne

As the trade deadline approaches, one name that is not being thrown out there quite as often is NHL legend and surefire Hall of Famer, Teemu Selanne

During the reign of Randy Carlyle, the Ducks were left for dead—they continued to play poorly and lose games, despite having the pieces they needed for a regular winning team. 

The Ducks found new life, however, and as of current are surging up towards the playoff bubble. The bad news for the Ducks is that they don't hold a significant number of games in hand that would help them move up the ladder in the later part of the season. Anaheim also has the begrudging task of trying to pass another four teams, simply for a shot at making the final seed in the Western Conference. 

 

In this speculation of Selanne, we assess what exactly it will take each potential suitor to land him, and what their chances are of actually making a trade for him.

Keep in mind that Selanne currently holds in his contract a No Movement Clause. This means that if Teemu wants to stay in Anaheim and forego one last shot at the Cup with another team, the team cannot move him under any circumstances. 

I have based the chances of landing Selanne on the amount each team must pay for the winger, what Conference and Division the team plays in and the relationship between general managers. This means what Anaheim is likely to ask—or in some cases demand—from another GM to set up a potential trade.
