With the November 30th deadline to cut more games looming, fans are waiting for some resolution to the lockout that has wiped out over 300 games (Herald Sun).
A worst-case scenario would be that the owners vote to cancel the entire 2012-13 season if the two sides are not close to a deal by the 30th.
If this occurs, for some players it could mean more than a lost season and some lost paychecks.
At the end of last season, there was a lot of speculation surrounding future Hall of Famer Teemu Selanne’s future. The fans in Anaheim were happy when he signed on for one more season.
With the lockout in full force and the future of the season in potential peril, Teemu Selanne may have already played his final game in the NHL.
In the slides that follow, we look at Teemu and five other players who may retire in the summer and lose their final season to this lockout.
